An embarrassingly unfunny attempt at screwball comedy, marking a career nadir for producer-director Peter Bogdanovich and his miscast star Rob Lowe.

The film isn't funny, but it's hard to figure out why.

[Bogdanovich] tries to emphasize the laughs rather than concentrating on characterization.

Audience Reviews for Illegally Yours

A funny romance comedy with the handsome Rob Lowe, and a good supporting cast. I enjoyed this movie, it's not great, but it's funny and I liked it.
