Movie Info

When speaking of Laurel and Hardy's first feature film Pardon Us, Stan Laurel described it as "a three-story building on a one-story base"-in other words, a 2-reeler stretched and bloated into 6 reels. Much the same could be said of Blake Edwards's Blind Date, though one wonders if Stan Laurel could have even gotten two reels out of its wafer-thin premise. At the outset, yuppie Bruce Willis is warned not to let his blind date, southern belle Kim Basinger, drink anything stronger than lemonade. … More

Comic possibilities are everywhere in Blind Date, and the tireless Mr. Edwards leaves none of them unexploited.

What this movie needs is Cybill Shepherd playing hard to get. Or anybody playing hard to get.

Top Critic

This is the kind of movie that serves as a reminder that comedy is agonizingly difficult when it works, and even more trouble when it doesn't.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Stanley Tucci has such a disdain for subtlety that he doesn't even allow the viewer to suss out for themselves what made-up identities Don and Janna have assumed in each encounter.

Slant Magazine

[Blu-ray Review] Increasingly contrived and longwinded at just 95 minutes, this is the kind of film that has been helmed with skill despite lackluster material.

A guilty pleasure from Willis and Bassinger's glory days!

Audience Reviews for Blind Date

One of the funniest films of the 80s, this comedy about a blind date going awry enjoys embarrassing situations for its protagonist and piles one after the other until you can't take it anymore. Director Edwards already delivered a similar film with his classic "What's up, doc", recycling a few of the ideas here, but still creating another riot of confusion, chaos and insane characters. The chemistry between Willis and Basinger is great and even though the film reeks of the 80s in every second, it's still fun to revisit over and over again.

In Blind Date, Walter Davis(Bruce Willis) goes on an arranged night-out,with Nadia Gates,(Kim Basinger), that starts off well but turns very, very ugly when alcohol gets into the mix. Don't worry though... this is a romantic comedy so you should be able to turn off your brain and watch the silliness unfold until you get to the happy ending.
had a few laughs~!
