The song is called: Let's Just' by Larry Gittens.

It was not included on the soundtrack and I'm pretty sure it was never released on any other album either.

Here's a movie I never saw until this weekend...I have mixed thoughts...

I remember when this movie came out but never paid any attention to it cause it seemed very "adult" at the time. I was a kid, what did I care/know about infidelity & marriage. The only thing that stuck with me was the Stevie Wonder hit "I Just Called" from the soundtrack.

Anyways, now at 36 and running low on movies in my Netflix queue, I decided to give this a whirl. I was shocked, that the iconic scene of Kelly LeBrock dancing on that air vent in the red dress, panties & heels, happened right in the beginning of the film. Where do you go from there? Seriously, even as a straight woman, it's like there's nowhere to go but down.

For the next 20 minutes, I found myself struggling to not hit the stop button. I was actually getting angry & I can't exactly say why but the movie was irritating me. I stuck it out.

It had it's moments here & there. Gilda was unlikable & funny all at the same time. Not sure how she pulled that off. I was surpried to see Michael Zorek pop up in the cast and the guy from Blame It On Rio whose name escapes me at the moment but Gene's character was so pathetically silly in his pursuit that it made me cringe at times. Well played I guess. What did you guys think?

Did I love it? No...Would I ever watch it again? Maybe...Did I hate Kelly LeBrock cause she was so beautiful? Definitely [Wink] !

This is one of these movies that I've seen and blotted from my memory. But I do think about it when I see the uproarious scene in "High Fidelity," where record store employee Jack Black insults the guy who wants to buy "I Just Called to Say I Love You" for his daughter. ("Is she in a coma?" ROFL) My hatred of that song, featured in the film and Steve Wonder's worst (it sounds like it was written and recorded by a five-year-old with a battery-operated Casio keyboard), pretty much sums up my feelings for the movie. Seriously, is there anything more mournful than a failed comedy? I mean, dramas can be boring and dreadful, but a comedy that doesn't work is just painful.

Beautiful or not, I don't hate Kelly LeBrock, but she did/does nothing for me... [Smile]

"The woman in red...(the woman in red)...the woman in red...(the woman in red)..."

Stupid stupid music! Hey Crash, I didn't say I liked that Stevie Wonder song just that it stuck with me, like a bad case of the chickenpox or a sinus infection.

I agree, overall, this movie FAILED as a comedy. I like the thought this provokes...time to start a thread about this very thing...

Yeah, i have the dvd but this is a disappointing movie.
Gene Wilder tries hard but the jokes fall flat.
Kelly LeBrock does her job though, she is amazing.

The subject matter doesn't lend itself easily to the 1980s style of Hollywood comedy - that of a midle aged family man having a mid0life crisis crush on a younger woman. as such it's gonna feel a little contrived, and there won't be the belly laughs in abundance. Add to that Gene Wilder pretty much played a straight man in most of his comedies, relying for his own laughs on more clever jokes (Young Frankenstein and The Producers spring to mind).

It's certainly not the worst comedy of the decade, in fact there are some great sub-plots, with Gilda's obsession, Gene's clumsy subterfuge, and the birthday party. it's never gonna be a National Lampoon's kind of movie though. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Well said, Paul.
I wasn´t necessary expecting a Lampoon style comedy and still wasn´t satisfied.
It has it´s moments though like cindym said.

Always liked this film.... from the time when adultery equalled comedy. Not that the real thing is a noble endavor in any way, but that doesn't mean you can't joke about it. After Fatal Attraction most films dealing with this subject had to have some sinister twist or snooze inducing feminist slant. I agree that not all the jokes and gags land here, but overall I think the film works, thanks to the cast, primarily Wilder, and just the easy going early 80's vibe of it all. This is a harmless and somewhat silly male fantasy flick from a bygone era.... I lump it in with Blake Edwards's 10 and Blame it on Rio.... a little uncouth, but enjoyable romps.

Interesting thoughts there, Chevy in disguise [Smile]
I may have to rewatch this one. I really liked "10" when i watched it about a year ago and Blame it on Rio is also good one.
Now that i´m over 40, i think i´m old enough to understand these poor fellas [Big Grin] Totally forgot that Grodin´s also in this one.

He is, and I like how the twist concerning his character is handled in such a mature and respectful manner, considering the time period. While there indeed is material in here reminiscent of 10 and Rio, I also think there are more nuanced touches akin to something like Alan Alda's The Four Seasons or The Big Chill. But overall it is pretty goofy, I shall concede.

That's a pretty good summation. I would say 10 and Woman in Red are better movies than Blame it on Rio - which I always saw as more of an exploitation movie than an honest look at a male mid-life crisis. I know the music for WiR gets mocked a little, but I always liked the songs, and anyone who remembers 1984 will know how ubiquitous 'I Just Called' was that year. People thought it was cheesy even then, but it sold bucketloads. Worth noting; WiR is a remake of a French film from a few years earlier. It's more or less the same but with less comedy and music. Grodin is Goldin as far as I'm concerned. He's great in practically everything.

The Hollywood obsession with remaking French farces/comedies in the 80's were rampant.
