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

    "10" is far from a masterpiece, in fact, it's much more of a goofy 70's rom-com than anything else, but there's a little bit more heart and quite a few more laughs than I thought there would be here. The film is about a man (played by Dudley Moore) going through a mid-life crisis as he realizes his age is creeping up on him as he's failing to provide a spark in his relationship with the one and only Julie Andrews. What follows feels like a movie made specifically for sexually deprived teenagers, but there's definitely a little bit more to it than that. George Webber (Moore) is a film composer recognized by everyone for his famous ballads, but he rarely shares an intimate moment with people for various reasons. Spending his nights desperate to find his music again and spying on his neighbor who consistently hosts sex parties, there's not a lot going for Webber. But when he stumbles upon a young newly married woman, things begin to change. The actual plot itself isn't the most interesting, especially as it consistently meanders into slapstick comedy. I mean, George literally has a mid-day fantasy of Bo Derek slowly running on a beach Baywatch style for over a minute. It's not exactly the most tightly written or directed feature. However, I did at least connect to the Webber character in part. His relationship to Andrews is touching at times, and I have a special place in my heart for film composers. Henry Mancini's score is another gem and it's definitely a film that can be enjoyed in the background if you turn your brain off for a few hours. 6.4/10

    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?

    Blake Edward's Hilarious and scintillating, rich, and complex smash hit comedy. About a 42-year-old composer George Webber, played by the late Dudley Moore in a tour-de-force performance. George is going through a mid-life crisis, one day while driving through Beverly Hills, he glimpses at a passing car and spots a beautiful young women en route to her wedding, he becomes completely fixated on this young beauty, played by Bo Derek in her film debut, she is one of the most ravishingly beautiful women ever to step in front of the camera, and with this film became a world-wide sex symbol. Julie Andrews is superb as George's patient girlfriend, and the rest of the supporting cast all deliver exceptional performances they includes Robert Webber, Brian Dennehy, Dee Wallace, Sam J. Jones, and Max Showalter. Dudley Moore with "10" began a series of hit comedies that included Arthur, Micki and Maude, that made him into a star and a audience favorite. One of director Blake Edwards finest films. Highly Recommended.
