Product Details

Product Description

From the Studio

Academy Award winning nominee Melanie Griffith (Working Girl) stars as Billie Dawn, a Las Vegas showgirl whose lack of sophistication makes for some hilariously embarrassing moments in the Washington, D.C., social scene. That's when her overbearing boyfriend (John Goodman - The Artist) hires a well-educated and handsome journalist (Don Johnson - When in Rome) to smarten her up. The improbable romance that blossoms between Billie and her tutor turns all of their lives - and Washington, D.C. - upside down!

When I purchased this DVD, the owner stated on amazon.ca that it was used, but I received it in perfect condition: in glassy wrap, used, but looks like brand new, not even a tiny scratch on the DVD. I'm very happy with this purchase!

The song that Melanie Griffith's character sings to help her remember the meaning of all of the amendments to the United States Constitution is catchy and memorable. I'd watch the movie for that alone. If for some reason you have to memorize the amendments, it's a great song.

It's difficult for me to tell which group this light film satirizes more: bimbo blondes (our protagonist blonde miraculously amasses sparkling intellect through avid reading of a dictionary and the Constitution) or boorish politicians.
Because the new film can't really tell audiences anything about the idiocy of politics that they don't already know, I'd say Born Yesterday is principally about the blonde's enlightenment and her humiliation of her pompous politician husband.
Overall it is a fairly inoffensive that lesirely goes about its comic business. I've seen it a couple of times and finished it on both occasions. And it's in colour (to counter-argue the whole Original vs New debate that other reviewers seem to be fascinated with).
Recommended rental for sure.
