"10" isn't really the sort of movie that I feel that I can just straightforward review, as it has its ups and downs. The plot of course has composer George Webber (Dudley Moore) going through his midlife crisis all obsessed with the hot young women, thereby messing up his relationship with girlfriend Samantha (Julie Andrews). I guess that if the movie has any problem, it's the casting of Moore. From everything that I've ever heard, it sounds like he was kind of worthless and undesirable to be around. Granted, in this movie he does a passable job as George, although it's hard to tell whether the movie is romanticizing or ripping at the LA lifestyle.

As for the movie's famous scene - Bo Derek in her swimsuit - I don't know what else to say. She later spoofed that scene in "Tommy Boy", but I don't know what else she's done recently except appear at the Republican National Conventions. And who on the set of "Mary Poppins" would have ever guessed that Julie Andrews would eventually star in this? Among the really funny scenes in my opinion are the wedding (and the events leading thereto), and what happens when George identifies himself as a Brit. In a way, Dudley Moore was expanding on his character from "Foul Play". Still, I think that we're probably doing Blake Edwards a favor if we remember him more for the "Pink Panther" movies. Also starring Dee Wallace (yep, ET's mom!), Brian Dennehy, and that guy at the end was character actor Don Calfa; you're sure to have seen him somewhere.

Trivia

First out-and-out comedy by husband and wife team Blake Edwards and Dame Julie Andrews. Their previous collaboration, Darling Lili (1970), was more of musical and not a full-on comedy. This was the first of five comedies Andrews and Edwards made together. The others being S.O.B. (1981), Victor Victoria (1982), The Man Who Loved Women (1983), and Victor/Victoria (1995).


Quotes

Jenny Hanley: I don't know what your problem is, but, I don't think you're going to solve it by trying to solve mine.
George Webber: Fine.
Jenny Hanley: And I don't think I really have a problem, George.
George Webber: That's your problem.


Goofs

After George is caught at his neighbor's orgy, he returns home and tries to call Sam and then his psychiatrist. The reflection of a man in sunglasses can be seen in the window just above and to the left of the telephone in the low-angle shots.


Crazy Credits

When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view into George and Samantha's penthouse, the members of the cast are listed but not the characters they played.


Alternate Versions

The TV print substitutes tamer versions of some of 10's racier moments. In particular, scenes featuring porn star Annette Haven as Dudley Moore's exhibitionist neighbor have been removed, replaced with scenes involving another actress. On scene features Moore's character using a telescope to watch a naked A. Haven making love (in the TV version, we see the substitute actress kissing a man while wearing a robe). A later scene, originally shown as a nude orgy, is replaced by a similar scene, but with everyone wearing bathing suits. In addition, the comedic lovemaking scene between Derek and Moore is played in the dark in the TV version.
