Let me start off by saying that my 5-star rating is for Kim Basinger's singing of these fantastic old songs. The DVD itself boasts no real extra features, so it deserves 3 stars at best. Toward the end of the film, I experience a few glitches, but that may simply be with my dvd player--you may not have the same problem with yours.
The film is charming. It is predictable, but still an enjoyable experience, thanks mainly to Kim Basinger. (By the way, I was not a fan of her at all until I saw her in this film.) Her performances of songs like "Let's Do It" and "Honeysuckle Rose" may be considered too sexy by purists, but considering modern sensibilities and the fact that she is supposed to be singing in a Las Vegas club in the fifties (the decade of Marilyn Monroe), I think her approach is perfectly fine. Her "stage presence" during these numbers is scintillating--I would love to see her perform music like this live in concert. The musical arrangements are fantastic also.

I watched this film long time ago, while LD still occupied a corner of the rental stores. I love the chemistry Alec and Kim sparks. The acting are convincing while the charater grow old. And the songs which were song by Kim are jsut fabulous !!I can always go back and watch those singing scenes and never get bored. Because not only the songs are catchy by themself, they are also in good hands -- Kim sings so sultryly with Stan Gatz at the saxphone !
And the movie is so funny, that will give you just a very happy mood all day long.

The review title I gave The Marrying Man pretty much says it all. I was curious to see what was going to happen to the characters in the movie from beginning to end. I won't give any spoliers. All I can say is that you need to watch this movie for yourself. Though it might not be one of Kim Basinger's or Alec Baldwin's best films, I'm willing to bet that you will be entertained from start to finish as I was.

I saw this movie many years ago, I liked it better the first time, but after watching it the second time around, I don't think," if given the chance", I would have ordered it for my movie library.

A sparkling comedy Feb. 29 2000
By Florence Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Based on a true story, The Marrying Man tells the story of Charlie Pearl (Baldwin) and Vicki Anderson (Basinger), he a rich playboy, she a Vegas lounge singer and girlfriend of gangster Bugsy Siegel. They love, fight, marry. Four times. Funny one-liners, great cast, fantastic songs and an authentic recreation of the glamorous late 1940's, early 1950's era are all propelled by real life husband and wife team Baldwin and Basinger's brilliant screen chemistry. The couple fell in love on the set- and it shows. Their portrayal of a couple whose sizzling heat fuels a love-hate relationship which takes over and nearly destroys their lives is backed up and given light relief by the perfectly chosen comedic supporting cast. Fisher Stevens and Paul Reiser feature as some of Charlie's struggling Hollywood friends, Reiser giving a wry narrative throughout which aids in the films continuity and light tone. Armand Assante, as Bugsy Siegel with an ironic sense of humor, delivers a refreshing and different slant on the usual movie gangsters. Robert Logia is fantastic and funny as the aggressive and egotistical movie studio owner and Elisabeth Shue is terrific as his neurotic and spoiled daughter, engaged to Charlie, but who is no match for sexy songstress Vicki. Basinger who did all of her own singing, gives a knock-out performance as the talented and ambitious singer. Her delivery- sexy, suggestive, vibrant- is perfect. In a sleazy Vegas casino, Charlie and his friends' first sight of her back-lit, curvy figure and the sound of her throbbing voice causes the stuttered and dazed reaction of: "she has great ....... phrasing" to which Reiser's character replies, "Oh yeah, the first thing I noticed when we walked in here was her phrasing". The cast, atmosphere and the on-screen heat with her leading man all make the film an enjoyable whole. But it is Basinger's transformation of Vicki's whole persona and performing style, from initially ambitious, brassy and slightly trashy, to sophisticated, worldly, and mellow in a perfectly honed performance that really helps make the film memorable.

THE MARRYING MAN { BLU-RAY ] Oct. 24 2012
By Gregory P. Jerkich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I had never heard of this movie & some how found it on Amazon & read some reviews & figured what the heck, for less than $5.00 I can get Kim Basinger in blu-ray. She is so nice to look at. It's a fun movie to watch, if you like Kim, or for you ladies, Alec. I can't compare it to the dvd quality as I have never seen it in this format, but the blu-ray is pretty nice & the price is right too. I say if you like Kim or Alec go ahead & get this. You will probably like it too. I can't believe how really good Kim sang either. Really unexpectedly nice. Did I mention how NICE Kim looked !!!!!!!

The marrying couple March 23 2005
By andy8047 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Before they became now-divorced husband and wife in real life,Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger are an on-and-off married couple. More times then Robert Wagner and the late Natalie Wood. Charley Pearl(Baldwin),whose family manufactures Pearl Drops tooth polish(a real product),is a romantic swinger who falls in love with a lounge singer(Basinger). Charley is actually engaged to Adele Horner(Elisabeth Shue) whose father Lew(Robert Loggia) owns a movie studio. The Charley-Adele wedding has been called off after the 400+ sent invitations. However,the wedding was called off before Charley and the singer married for the first of five times. When the union made headlines,it angered Lew and brought tears to Adele. Lew is so pissed at Charley that Lew wants to kill Charley. Adele thought and hoped Charley would come back to her but no such luck. Charley and the singer ended buying and moving into Lew's home. Hey,do you think it's possible that Baldwin and Basinger will become husband and wife four more times in real life just like in this film? Wagner's and Wood's first marriage ended in divorce. They both remarried and divorced others,once respectively,before remarrying a second time. The second marriage ended in 1981 with Wood's drowning death.
