Blind Date

AKA:
 
 
Walter Davis (Willis) is a workaholic. He focuses all of his attention on his work, and very little on his appearance or his non-existent personal life.

His boss tells him that he needs a date to take to his company's business dinner with a new important Japanese client. His brother sets him up with his wife's cousin Nadia (Basinger), who is new in town and wants to socialise. However, there is one thing he HAS to remember; when she drinks, she loses control, and all of her inhibitions disappear.

Walter doesn't think one drink will hurt, but soon finds out how wrong he can be.

Enter Nadia's psychotic ex-boyfriend David, and pretty soon things get out of hand and Walter is up in front of the Judge on assault charges against David - and the judge happens to be David's father!

David drops all charges only when Nadia promises to go back to him and the wedding plans are set.

How much worse can things get? Well, for one thing, Walter could fall in love with Nadia and fight to get her back from David's grasp....

Verdict?

This is a fun movie. It's wildly unpredictable, because you just don't know what the actors are going to do next.

It has the feel of a theater farce, and the characters are so over the top that you can just sit and enjoy laughing as Willis and Larroquette lurch from one improbable encounter to another.

Notice any mistakes? Review

Strengths: Excellent! Very over-the-top acting, with all the actors having a great time

Weaknesses? As with many romantic comedies, it all works out at the end, and you know that it will, but getting there is fun!

Our rating: 8.5 out of 10
