Critic Reviews for Best Defense
It really isn't easy to make a movie as mind-bendingly bad as Best Defense. It takes hard work, a very great deal of money and people so talented that it matters when they fail with such utter lack of distinction.
Try as they may, neither the cast nor the filmmakers can cover up the fact that this movie, like Moore's prototype, is a dud.
Audience Reviews for Best Defense
Disappointing, Best Defense, have a poor, but clever, screenplay, poor direction and nothing funny moments. A low point in Dudley Moore's career. It's a good film to know, but terrible to be one of your favorite. Rotten.More
Let's face it, Dudley Moore's film career STANK! A film of two halves, with Moore and Murphy featuring in two different stories, neither of which are even vaguely funny.More
Hideously unfunny star comedy remarkable in that the two stars never actually appear on screen together.More
