Skin Deep (Widescreen) [Import]
In yet another of a long line of lame Blake Edwards's films in the 1980s, John Ritter stars as a compulsive womanizer trying to get his impulses under control as he seeks to reconcile with his ex-wife. But his gonads get the better of him every time, and they also get the better of the jokes here, which are distinctly few and far between. Indeed, the film has only one sure laugh, a rather tasteless scene involving a darkened room, glow-in-the-dark condoms, and two men, neither of whom realizes the other is there until the lights go out and they've stripped for action. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What's funny about this is that Zach has a history of womanizing and cheating, in which he has fullfilled the fantasies of every woman he meets, yet he finds himself alone and without someone he can really say he loves, with
the exception of his ex wife.
A bit phased by this Zach continues his lifestyle until he realizes, it is perhaps his ways with women that has resulted in his short relationships. He goes to his friend Barney the bartender (Vincent Gardiana who is best known for
playing the police investigator on the heels of the vigilante killer, Charles Bronson in Death Wish) who gives him
a couple of tips, but none of which help much.
The movie is funny because we see the character of Zach going from one mishap to another like Jack Tripper's character in Three's Company (which Ritter played). In one funny scene,
Zach dates a bodybuilding woman who in his
words leaves his private parts "scared stiff". LOL
Then in one of the more funny scenes, Zach and his female character get caught in the dark by the female's boyfriend, since both of them are wearing glow in the dark condoms!!! It's as funny as it sounds. Blake Edwards who has been making great comedy films for over 20 years, from early hits like
"10", to more modern hits like "Blind Date" and "Skindeep" , has shown that he still has the romantic, comedic
Very funny movie to watch.

Movie version was great. DVD version was from another country and would not work in my player and returning it would mean paying more than it was worth in postage. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Steven E May

First I want to say that I was never a fan of Threes Company. I never watched the show, oh maybe once or twice to see what the hoopla was all about back then. Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2003 by Michael R. Delfin
