Blake Edwards' 10 stars Dudley Moore as George, a Mancini-type songwriter. Approaching middle age, George feels as if life is passing him by, especially his sex life. Despite the presence of longtime lady friend Sam (Julie Andrews) in his life, he becomes obsessed from afar with Jenny (Bo Derek), who is engaged to be married. Following her to Mexico without her knowledge, George arranges a meeting with Jenny by saving the life of her fiancé, David (Sam Jones). Once he has made her acquaintance, George suddenly finds himself faced with the realities of embarking on such an affair. Beyond renewing the popularity of Maurice Ravel's "Bolero" and turning Bo Derek into a star, upon its release, 10 was one of the most financially successful Blake Edwards films in years. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for 10
10's tossed-off quality keeps it from greatness, but it also distinguishes it from the great mass of contemporary comedies smoothed to a shiny, edgeless formula. [Blu-ray]
Dudley Moore is periodically funny, Julie Andrews is mostly charming, and Bo Derek is always gorgeous.
This passable but not great Blake Edwards picture became known for the huge impact that the beautiful Bo Derek had on hairstyle; Bo's stardom was shortlived, though.
People tend to forget what a hilarious movie this really is
"10" explores sexual yearning in a drama that is both funny and right on target with its depiction of the yearnings of men.
Sexist, juvenile, and pathetically structured, despite the gamest efforts of its actors and the blithe willingness of its famous non-actor.
It was a big hit. I have never understood why.
And oh, the irony, that the film only deserves a '1.'
Highly over-rated Dudley Moore comedy.
Obvious but entertaining portrayal of midlife crisis gone horribly awry.

Wow, I saw this such a long time ago, I barely remember it, I should see it again, maybe it's better than I think?More
I am surprised to see how much this film is underrated and not really appreciated as it should. Dudley Moore is great an actor as he is a comedian, and this is a hilarious story that takes a really honest look at the middle age crisis and inchoate yearnings.More
A nice comedic melodrama with some good performances. It's not as good as some have hailed it as being, but it's good enough for a watch every once in a while. As far as cinematic midlife crises go, stick with American Beauty. It is rather dated, but because it is, it actually provides a nice look at the sexual excesses of an era before the AIDS pandemic- which I kind of liked.More
I really enjoyed this film - the whole dream thing for Dudley followed by him actually managing to pull this lovely young thing... it's the stuff of dreams! It also shows that you should never give up on your dreams, but also that dreams are often better than reality (hence he ended up not going through with it) - it's a quality film that deserves more showings on TV than it gets! Of course the gratuitous nudity helped pass along the more boring moments.. and which red-blooded male wouldn't do as Dudley does? Telescopes are definitely NOT useless during the day despite what Patrick Moore might say! So, for sheer eye candy, coupled with getting an ugly man an attractive girl, this film is great to watch - plus it has many comic moments too of course! Marvellous!More
