A wannabe screwball comedy within the vein of “Bringing Up Child,” this lighthearted farce paired Field along Michael Caine and ’80s icon Steve Guttenberg, in a movie that ended up being simply simple screwy.
Written and directed through Jerry Belson (veteran of “The Bizarre Couple” TV display), Caine was once solid as a rich, twice-divorced writer who swears off romance till he is held hostage at a charity ball, made to strip bare, and tied to a chair with a a success artist (Field). Which, you recognize, occurs at all times.
Caine, naturally, falls exhausting for Field, who is caught in a run of the mill dating with a wealthy legal professional (Guttenberg) — however he pretends to be deficient to make certain she falls in love with him and no longer his cash. Issues simply get wackier from there, despite the fact that no longer essentially funnier, as critics identified.
