Writer-Director Wilder has fashioned an ironic, worldly, yet sternly moral comedy that gives an energizing twist to every farcical convention and finds the perfect timing for every rubber-faced reaction to calamity.
The project as a whole is a lot less mawkish than we've come to expect from Wilder's directorial efforts. Still, it ain't exactly state of the art.
The laughs roll along readily as Wilder tries one idea after another to sneak out on wife Judith Ivey and family to rendevous with Le Brock.
[A] broad, unfunny Hollywood remake of the broad, only vaguely funny French original Pardon Mon Affaire.
Fortunately, most of the film is more appealing than its premise.
Wilder is at his frantic best, ably supported by the likes of real-life wife Gilda Radner and Midnight Run's Charles Grodin.
The film drones on through all the clichés of infidelity to a resolution that isn't emotionally, morally or comedically satisfying.
The so-called farce is just degrading prattle that drags on much longer than it should.
There are moments of real humor and real emotion in this otherwise frivolous sex comedy.
An amusing comedy about male lust and infatuation. As usual, Wilder is perfect as the nervous everyman.
Nothing fresh or funny to add to the overworked theme of the male mid-life crisis.
When Wilder is on form he can be an irresistible comic draw, but this apologetic male fantasy piece is terribly heavy handed and corny.
Kelly Le Brock stars as The Woman in Red in this formulaic and stereotypical '80s rom-com. Written and directed by Gene Wilder, the film follows a middle-aged family man who becomes infatuated with a beautiful model, but the infatuation soon starts to cause problems with his career and his family. Aside from Le Brock and Wilder, there are a number of talented comedic actors in the cast, including Gilda Radner and Charles Grodin. But the film is incoherent, and nothing is really achieved or learned by the characters. There are funny moments here and there, but The Woman in Red is a forgettable and unremarkable comedy.
Interesting dramedy. Great acting by Charles Grodin.
Gene Wilder directs himself in this "comedy" about marriage. He does a pretty good job, but for the most part it isn't all that funny. Overall, it's okay.
Tacky 80s farce in which middle aged exec Gene Wilder suffers a mid life crisis and sets off in pursuit of a model. Sleazy and desperately unfunny.
