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.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Comic possibilities are everywhere in Blind Date, and the tireless Mr. Edwards leaves none of them unexploited.
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.
What this movie needs is Cybill Shepherd playing hard to get. Or anybody playing hard to get.
A guilty pleasure from Willis and Bassinger's glory days!
Underappreciated rom-com with Larroquette in top form
Hir or miss, but a couple of the gags that do hit are screamingly funny. A bit involving Graham Stark's butler and a doberman had me howling uncontrollably.
Would you believe My Stepmother Is an Alien was better?
When Edwards misfires, he misfires big.
This is something special, even among its ilk. Frighteningly bad.
Blind Date is a funny movie, but only in parts. As a Sunday afternoon Superstation timewaster, it'll do the job every bit as well as an episode of Moonlighting or Night Court.
