Movie Info

Struggling artist Daisy Morgan is attending a posh cocktail party at a museum when masked machine-gun-toting crooks suddenly appear, force everyone to disrobe and tie them up after robbing them. Daisy ends up tied to successful but neurotic, romantically-challenged mystery writer Sean Stein in this effervescent romantic comedy. She has no idea who he is and the paranoid Stein, not wanting another gold-digger, is happy to have her believe that he too is struggling with his craft.

Audience Reviews for Surrender


Yet another movie where I don't agree with the masses. I thought it was funny, entertaining and re-watchable. Not excellent, but good.

Sally Field gives a sparkling performance as a confused woman in love with Michael Caine, Steve Guttenberg, and money, not necessarily in that order. Caine and Guttenberg are superb.
