"I went on a blind date... Anyone got $10,000 for bail?"

Walter Davis (Bruce Willis) is required to bring a date to a company function. A relative (Phil Hartman) know for finding weird blind dates seems to have located the perfect date Nadia Gates (Kim Basinger;) the only caveat is that she is unstable when liberated. Walter was warned. Naturally the warning must be an exaggeration as we all get a little tipsy. Nope it was right on the money. Nadia who also gives warning goes from polite to helpful to very helpful. To top this off she is being doggedly followed by a psychotic cop ex- boyfriend (John Larroquette.) This is just for starters.

Filmmaking legend Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, Breakfast at Tiffany's) is the man behind the camera. He brings a lot of class and experience to what could have been a generic romantic comedy. His widescreen compositions and long, moving camera takes add a touch of sophistication. Many scenes are done in one long take, lending a theatrical edge to the humor. Whilst Willis and Basinger are the main cast, a big nod must go to John Larroquette who plays the maniac David. He provides almost all the laughs. There is also a starring role for William Daniels the guy who voiced KITT from Knight Rider. And he swears, which is interesting.

Overall rating: 7 out of 10.

Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. In the funniest ways.

I never understood why the critics panned this movie. This is one of my top 100 movies. It takes a culture experience that can be unpleasant and turns into an hysterical disaster. It also takes direct-aim at The Yuppie lifestyle and scores a direct hit. Willis, Bassinger and Laroquette are spot- on with their physical comedy.The one-liners are classic. This was Willis' first feature film and proved he had the ability to command the Big screen. Both Bassinger and Willis are at the top of their game and extremely attractive. I always enjoy watching this film.It is "laugh out loud" funny. Even after almost three decades, it is one of the best date movies ever made.

Likable farce with Bruce Willis and Kim Basinger

Released in 1987, "Blind Date" stars Bruce Willis as a workaholic who is forced to get a blind date (Kim Basinger) for an important company dinner meeting. Everything goes awry when she has too much to drink. John Larroquette co-stars as the girl's crazy ex and Stephanie Faracy has a small role.

This is a likable farce with quite a few laughs, but not enough to give it a higher rating. Being shot in 1986, everything about it screams mid-80s – the big hair, hideous mullets and music with electronic drums. Plus it's cool seeing Willis when he was young and with a full head of hair. On the negative side, even farces have to stay somewhere within the bounds of plausibility, but "Blind Date" sometimes goes over-the-top goofy, like at the midpoint when the house moves away while hooligans run wild in the neighborhood. Nevertheless, this is worthwhile for some laughs, particularly if you like the cast.

The film runs 95 minutes and was shot in the Los Angeles area.

GRADE: B- or C+ (5.5/10)
