| For Adult Sensibilities
This movie holds a special place for me because I consider it to be my first "adult" film. Meaning this is the first movie made for adults with adult themes that I really paid attention to and liked. This doesn't mean it contains a lot of nudity and profanity. Actually it doesn't have much of either and that's a relief.

Keith Carradine is great as Mickey, a man will marry any woman he kisses. A man suffering the trials and tribulations of someone who always tells the truth. Two of the women that come into his life are "Ann" (also Nancy Love) and "Eve" (also Eve). Genevieve Bujold and Lesley Ann Warren play them with style.

Pepper it with characters make this movie a light treat. Alas it has dated a bit from its '80's self. But the Freddy Pendergrass music is still marvelous and sets "Choose Me"'s mood right.

Trivia

While Mickey (Keith Carradine) is in the bath, Nancy (Geneviève Bujold) searches his luggage and finds: An issue of Yale Quarterly, containing a review of Charles Johnston's translation of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, written by Mickey. An issue of The Stars and Stripes with an article and photograph of Mickey (as Lieutenant), marrying a Colonel's daughter. A photograph of Mickey and his wife at the Officer's Club in Freeslautern, West Germany in 1973. A certificate of The Air Medal, awarded to Mickey by the U.S. President in 1974. A certificate of the Distinguished Service Cross, awarded to Mickey by the U.S. President. Photos of Mickey as a pilot in a cockpit, one labelled "Saigon". Issues of Esquire and Newsweek. Two issues of Pravda and one of Stern with photographs of Mickey, apparently being arrested by security forces. The Stern article headline (roughly) translates as "Spy versus Spy", with a subhead "Which is True?"


Quotes

Announcer: Stay by your phone, Doctor Nancy Love will be up on KCMY talk radio with The Love Line.

Goofs

When leaving the nightclub after her first visit, Nancy carefully unlocks her car with a key before getting in while talking to the transvestite streetwalker, but then grabs the top of the door panel to close it, revealing that the window had been open all the time.
