Blake Edwards’ 10, a spicy comedy of manners, morals and midlife crises, captures many moods, sometimes sexy, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes slapstick--but always on target. That target is 42-year-old composer George (Dudley Moore), a man who has everything (including patient singer girlfriend Julie Andrews)--and who may just chuck it all on an obsessive quest for a beautiful woman (Bo Derek) he glimpses en route to her wedding. An iconic crowd-pleaser, 10 propelled the movie careers of Moore and Derek and gave Ravel’s Bolero a fiery new romantic context. And it stands as one of its director’s richest, most fully realized works.
One of the best comedies of the 1970s, Blake Edwards's ode to midlife crisis and the hazards of infidelity now plays like a valentine to that self-indulgent decade, and it's still as funny as it ever was. In the signature role of his career (along with "Arthur"), Dudley Moore plays a songwriter with a severe case of marital restlessness, and all it takes is a chance encounter with Bo Derek (in her screen debut) to jump-start his libido. Julie Andrews plays Moore's wife, who will only tolerate so much of her husband's desperate need to reaffirm his sexual vitality, while Moore pursues Derek to a tropical rendezvous. The action builds to the now-famous bedroom scene that sent everyone rushing to the music store for their own copy of Ravel's Boléro. Talk about a classical climax! --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Special highlights include the hilarious aftermath of George's first visit to a dentist in years, and of course Bo Derek in THAT swimsuit massaging suntan oil all over her thighs. She's enough to make any red-blooded male's saliva congeal to thick foamy goop. She definitely gets a "10". The story isn't that great, but in terms of laughs the movie delivers. This may be Blake Edwards' funniest movie since A SHOT IN THE DARK. Well worth a look, though it wouldn't surprise me in the least if in the name of Political Correctness and "cultural sensitivity" this movie gets retitled "Teko" (Maori for "10") in NZ in the near future. It's a strange country I live in.

it's a great Blake Edward story with great actors and a crazy and wacky storyPublished 14 months ago by Eric Woodall
I would just like to use this space to contest that Bo Derek never was qualified enough to be a 'sex symbol' character in anything. Read morePublished on May 29 2004
This is a likeable, interesting comedy. The movie is mostly remembered for Bo Derek, but her screen time is far less than the two main stars, Dudley Moore and Julie Andrews,... Read morePublished on Jan. 28 2004 by TheFrozenSky9483
