The World's Greatest Lover Photos

Movie Info

When a film studio decides to find a movie star to rival celebrity Rudolph Valentino, the company's executives, particularly the imperious Zitz (Dom DeLuise), sponsor a contest to audition aspiring actors. High-strung baker Rudy Hickman (Gene Wilder) enters the competition as Rudy Valentine, and, surprisingly, seems to hold some promise. His obsession with becoming a leading man, however, eventually gets Rudy into serious trouble with his wife, Annie (Carol Kane).

Audience Reviews for The World's Greatest Lover

    Wilder goes all in with this one, only to flop and flop hard. Still the effort is worth a watch, regrettably proving the old adage about comedy being hardest of all disciplines to master. An incredible, if failed, work.

    I loved this movie, It stars two of my favourite actors, and it's also directed by Wilder. The story is hilarious as are the jokes within it. I highly recommend this movie to fans.

    Not Gene Wilder's best.
