Movie Info

In a well-wrought sex comedy with one foot in the feminist camp and another on a banana peel, Casey Meadows (Deborah Foreman in an excellent performance) defies social custom when she gets a job as a limo driver. The manager of the Brentwood Limousine Company, McBride (Howard Hesseman), and her co-workers give her both a hard time and some of the worst fares possible. She is eventually assigned to chauffeur an overworked executive (Sam Jones) who just broke up with his girlfriend. After drowning his sorrows in the back seat of the limo, the ingrate wakes up in Casey's bed the morning after, refusing to believe he had anything to do with her. Their antagonistic relationship is stressed all the more when she has to drive him on a vacation and the car breaks down. What Casey does not know is that she has not been given the complete scoop on her passenger.more

Audience Reviews for My Chauffeur

A charming yet predictable romantic comedy. Foreman is cute and spunky, but the rest of the cast is average. Overall, an okay movie, but not great.

For a change of pace this past week I decided to pop in a little '80s cheese, and this one certainly delivers.

The always cute Deborah Foreman tries to crack the largely mail field of limo driving in typical L.A., with the expected zany results and just maybe a little love story to top it all off. Some of the 'twists' feel pretty corny and telegraphed, but it's still an amusing way to pass 90 minutes if you just wanna kill an afternoon with something harmless.

Give it a rental.

Although I found the story predictable, silly, and unromantic, this movie does have it's charm. That charm comes from Foreman for the most part, and that very funny part with Penn and Teller. If it wasn't for them, the movie would have been flat.
