Product Description

Product Description

In this hilarious undercover comedy, violinist Richard Drew (Hanks) is mistaken for a spy after wearing one red shoe and triggers a game of rivalry between two feuding CIA bosses (Charles Durning, Dabney Coleman). Though Richard is mugged, shot at and chased, he remains unaware that he is an object of suspicion and even falls in love with the agent (Lori Singer) who's trailing him. Meanwhile, his friend's (Jim Belushi) love-starved wife (Carrie Fisher) has designs on him as well.


Adapted from a popular French comedy-thriller, The Man with One Red Shoe follows a concert violinist (Tom Hanks) used as a patsy in a conflict between two rival factions of the CIA. Singled out at the airport solely because he's wearing mismatched shoes, Hanks is henceforth believed to be a mole with important information; a rogue crew of agents follows him, searches his apartment, and even seduces him in order to find out what he knows. At the same time, loyal agents--who also believe he's a mole--follow and protect him from predation by the rogues. Lori Singer plays a beautiful blonde spy with a conscience and an astonishing backless dress; Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, and Edward Herrmann are agents trying to second-guess each other; Jim Belushi plays Hanks's best friend, a jealous percussionist, and Carrie Fisher plays Belushi's wife, a flautist who's infatuated with Hanks and wants him to make some jungle love. Hanks plays it straight and is reliably pleasant. In the hands of Hitchcock, this might have generated some real suspense; as it is, it's amusing with some good twists, some weak gags, and one remarkable bicycle stunt. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1.0 out of 5 stars The real reason the French don't like us Sept. 29 2003
Format:VHS Tape
I had high hopes for this one when it was released; the original French movie 'The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe' is one of my favorite comedies, and hey, who doesn't like Tom Hanks?
But this remake is streets apart from that - for all the mayhem in the common plot of intelligence intrigue and unwitting decoys, the remake plays it lots meaner and uglier than the original...and then is downright prudish on the sexual angles that made the original a pleasing adult comedy.
Maybe if you never saw the original you can like or tolerate this one. As for me...Sacre bleu, it stinks.

4.0 out of 5 stars funny and in some ways believable May 13 2004
Format:VHS Tape
There is a competition of sorts between two groups of people in the CIA headed by the two bosses (Dabney Coleman and Charles Durney). One group sets the other up by claiming they have a spy/mole with some important information and that he's coming in on a certain plane. They leak the information by deliberately talking into the bugs they found planted by the other team. There is no one, but when part of their team goes to the airport, with the other team sets up with their men there to discover who the informant is, the team that has put the plan in motion, randomly picks out an unsuspecting passenger getting off a plane who just happens to be wearing one red shoe, which is Tom Hanks. They pretend to make contact and then, Tom Hanks, completely unaware of anything unusual is now under surveilence.
Tom Hanks is a musician who travels to different countries playing with a concert. He and his friend and his friend's wife (who has the hots for him) have just returned from one of his trips.
He is tracked and followed by both teams, one to spy on him and the other to try and protect him, his place is turned upside down, a beautiful agent is sent to get close to him, his friend's wife is hitting on him, wanting him to go to bed with him. She likes to play Tarzan in bed and makes some wild noises, which is recorded by Dabney's team and later heard by the wife's husband as they play the recording in their van and he thinks she's in it, and so on... You get the picture. Lot of things going on all the time. The whole time Tom Hanks is completely unaware of any of this and is falling for the beautiful blond. Not a whole lot of depth, but a fun little movie and actually has parts in it that are quite believable in this day and age. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Fun Then A Barrel of Monkeys Nov. 21 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This review refers to the 20th century Fox VHS edition....
Tom Hanks shines early in his career, as he gives us an hour and half of pure fun.Although this film was based on the French farce"The Tall Blonde Man With One Black Shoe", I saw it as a kind of Mad Magazine spoof of North by Northwest. Not the same story but a similar premise.
Musician Richard Drew(Hanks) is minding his own business, wearing one red shoe(the other seems to have gotten lost), when unbeknownst to him he is targeted as a spy by the CIA. One of two rival CIA bosses(Charles Durning/Dabney Coleman) has set him up to put the other on a wild goose chase.The laughs are non stop as these bumbling agents turn Drew's house upside down, try seducing him with their sexiest agent(Lori Singer),and drug him. Through all this he never suspects what is going on and falls for the girl.
On the other hand his buddy (Jim Belushi) may be headed for a little R&R as he is the one finding the bodies left behind, and his over-sexed wife(Carrie Fisher) is trying to hide her affection for Drew. Carrie does a great imitation of Tarzan's chimp.. watch(or I should say listen) for that one.
It is Directed by Stan Dragoti and also includes Ed Hermann in this very funny cast. It is rated PG, but you might want to view it before watching with the kids, there are some moments closer to PG13.
The VHS has a nice clear picture and it is in HI-Fi Stereo. This edition also has closed captions if neccessary.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a mess! May 10 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Where do I begin? There is a problem with almost every facet of this film. The first major flaw is that the plot is rather confusing. I suppose that would be alright if this were a more sophisticated comedy. However, "The Man With One Red Shoe" is purely a silly little flick and it shouldn't leave its viewers scratching their heads wondering who is doing what to whom and why.
Other problems include characters that are ignorant beyond belief, boring "action" sequences, one-dimensional characters and flat performances. I literally laughed only one time during the entire picture. The "hair in the zipper" scene is one of those classic movie moments like the "hair gel" scene in "There's Something About Mary". If only the rest of this film was even half as inspired. Sadly...it's not.
Tom Hanks went through a dry spell for several years early in his comedic career. This movie was just one of those blunders before he got things back on track with "Big". The only other positive aspects of this dud are the cool Thomas Newman soundtrack and Lori Singer's slick sunglasses. Unfortunately, those don't pull enough weight to make this anywhere near a quality film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carrie Fisher really swings Aug. 22 2000
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of Tom Hanks's best. It may get lost in the total of his movies. However it is a must see. I did not see the French movie this is supposed to be a remake of, yet given the cast and their enthusiasm in the movie it could only be an improvement. It was interesting that Richard (Tom Hanks) and Morris (James Belushi) used bicycles for transportation. Many parts of the film would not have worked if they were in automobiles or on foot.
I guess the moral of this story is that you have to watch your feet.
