Movie Info

Blake Edwards' 10 stars Dudley Moore as George, a Mancini-type songwriter. Approaching middle age, George feels as if life is passing him by, especially his sex life. Despite the presence of longtime lady friend Sam (Julie Andrews) in his life, he becomes obsessed from afar with Jenny (Bo Derek), who is engaged to be married. Following her to Mexico without her knowledge, George arranges a meeting with Jenny by saving the life of her fiancé, David (Sam Jones). Once he has made her acquaintance, George suddenly finds himself faced with the realities of embarking on such an affair. Beyond renewing the popularity of Maurice Ravel's "Bolero" and turning Bo Derek into a star, upon its release, 10 was one of the most financially successful Blake Edwards films in years. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

A sporadically funny, marginally interesting fiasco that might have evolved into a memorable romantic comedy.

10's tossed-off quality keeps it from greatness, but it also distinguishes it from the great mass of contemporary comedies smoothed to a shiny, edgeless formula. [Blu-ray]

Dudley Moore is periodically funny, Julie Andrews is mostly charming, and Bo Derek is always gorgeous.

This passable but not great Blake Edwards picture became known for the huge impact that the beautiful Bo Derek had on hairstyle; Bo's stardom was shortlived, though.

People tend to forget what a hilarious movie this really is

Apr 30, 2004 | Rating: 4/5

"10" explores sexual yearning in a drama that is both funny and right on target with its depiction of the yearnings of men.

It is surprising that this excellent film is so underrated and has never been appreciated as it should be. Dudley Moore is a great actor and a great comedian, and this is a hilarious story that takes a very honest look at the middle age crisis and inchoate yearnings.

Wow, I saw this such a long time ago, I barely remember it, I should see it again, maybe it's better than I think?

A nice comedic melodrama with some good performances. It's not as good as some have hailed it as being, but it's good enough for a watch every once in a while. As far as cinematic midlife crises go, stick with American Beauty. It is rather dated, but because it is, it actually provides a nice look at the sexual excesses of an era before the AIDS pandemic- which I kind of liked.

I really enjoyed this film - the whole dream thing for Dudley followed by him actually managing to pull this lovely young thing... it's the stuff of dreams! It also shows that you should never give up on your dreams, but also that dreams are often better than reality (hence he ended up not going through with it) - it's a quality film that deserves more showings on TV than it gets! Of course the gratuitous nudity helped pass along the more boring moments.. and which red-blooded male wouldn't do as Dudley does? Telescopes are definitely NOT useless during the day despite what Patrick Moore might say! So, for sheer eye candy, coupled with getting an ugly man an attractive girl, this film is great to watch - plus it has many comic moments too of course! Marvellous!
