Martin's trademark wacky humor is fitfully in evidence, but seems much more repressed than usual in order to fit into the relatively realistic world of single working people.
The kind of movie that seems to have been made to play in empty theaters on overcast January afternoons.
It tries a little bit of everything, and winds up with an air of messy desperation.
Arthur Hiller's direction exudes a flavorless professionalism, a quality that doesn't count for much in this context.
A mindless comedy that's about as funny as a life sentence in solitary confinement.
An inventive comic meditation on being single.
Alternando o besteirol e a comédia de situações, o filme é consistentemente engraçado e surpreendentemente sensível. Um dos melhores da carreira de Steve Martin.
The least satisfying of Steve Martin's early movies.
Martin and pathos just don't mix.
Very funny, early Steve Martin comedy. Has some great bits including a gag with spary-on sweat and another with cardboard stand-ups doubling as friends for lonely guys. Not Martin's funniest film, but it's up there.
Gets funnier with age.
The title of this movie pretty much says it all. This is a movie about a lonely guy who is searching for some love. He's tormented by his own loneliness and this movie follows him in his search for a woman to fall in love with. A classic Steve Martin movie, very good.
If you're sad and lonely, watch this great comedy, you'll still be lonely but at least you wont be sad about it anymore!
One of the weakest of Martin's 80s movies. Quite dated, but still worth a watch if you're a hardcore fan.
Mildly amusing sitcom in which Steve Martin discovers that being a pathetic loser has it's upside. The script was by Neil Simon, which explains it's "Woody Allen lite" feeling. Inoffensive, but rarely hilarious.
