Movie makes mincemeat of Freud & his limited & negative theory of human motivation & potential. "Go Sol", I hear myself thinking throughout the film, feeling here is a therapist who dares stand up to the stiff board of censors who don't deserve to have access to mentally unstable people, for they appear more rigid & dogmatic than the deacons at a Southern Baptist convention.

Written and directed by Marshall Brickman (who worked with Woody Allen on the scripts for Sleeper, Annie Hall and Manhattan), this is an amusing and warmly funny romantic comedy. It also has a good cast, and Brickman does well with the romance and the comedy, and it's something that could have been weaved from Brickman's former writing partner. Psychologist Saul Benjamin (Dudley Moore) is asked to take on a patient as a favour to a late friend, the patient is Chloe Allen (Elizabeth McGovern) and after their first session, Saul falls hopelessly in love with Chloe. But, Chloe is already in a relationship with arrogant Broadway actor Ted Caruso (Ron Silver), but Saul's wife Katie (Anne Kerry) is having an affair with artist Jac Applezweig (Larry Rivers). But as Saul wants to be with Chloe, Saul is frequently visited by the ghost of Sigmund Freud (Alec Guinness), who appears to heed warnings about the dangers of a doctor having a relationship with a patient, and Saul's obsession with Chloe means he's abandoning his patients, and it throws his life into disarray, and he has to choose between love or helping the sick. It's a gentle romantic comedy, not all of the jokes work, but when they do they're funny. Moore and McGovern make good romantic leads, while Guinness is endearing and funny as Freud, and there's good support from John Huston, Christine Baranski, David Strathairn and Wallace Shawn.

Dudley is an average or lower comedian & he struggles drastically in a straight role.

The premise of this film is that Dudley Moore a psychiatrist falls for one of his parents & comic results ate ensured, but this film was just not funny at all.

Elizabeth McGovern the love interest is a great actress but even she couldn't do anything with this dull role. A silly film that gets tiresome quickly.

I have never been much of a Dudley moore fan, but he's not to bad in this. Even with that, the movie is generally lifeless. Even Alec Guiness can't breathe life into this film. Bland romantic comedy.

Not the best performances, that's true, but the story was terrific and their were alot of very funny moments and one liners. Moore reminded me a bit like "Arthur" in this one, but just a bit.

Dudley Moore plays an unconvincing psychiatrist who falls in love with a patient - Elizabeth McGovern. It is a pretty horrid movie. I gave up on it about 1/2 through.

Dudley Moore and Elizabeth McGovern are fantastic in this offbeat romantic comedy in the tradition of ANNIE HALL.
