Product Description

Forty year-old Oscar-winning screenwriter George (Dudley Moore) attempts to combat a bout of mid-life crisis by pursuing the woman of his dreams (Bo Derek), even though he first sees her as she is making the way to her own wedding. Tracking the object of his affections to her honeymoon destination in Mexico, George makes several bumbling attempts at seduction, much to the chagrin of his long-suffering girlfriend (Julie Andrews). Blake Edwards' adult comedy was the surprise hit of 1979 and made a Hollywood star of 'Cuddly Dudley'.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the best comedies of the 1970s, Blake Edwards' ode to midlife crisis and the hazards of infidelity now plays like a valentine to that self-indulgent decade, and it's still as funny as it ever was. In the signature role of his career (along with Arthur), Dudley Moore plays a songwriter with a severe case of marital restlessness, and all it takes is a chance encounter with Bo Derek (in her screen debut) to jump-start his libido. Julie Andrews plays Moore's wife, who will only tolerate so much of her husband's desperate need to reaffirm his sexual vitality, while Moore pursues Derek to a tropical rendezvous. The action builds to the now-famous bedroom scene that sent everyone rushing to the music store for their own copy of Ravel's Boléro. Talk about a classical climax! --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

(THE FILM)
Director Blake Edwards delivers a story that dares to touch upon these risqué devices. "10" in it's own way has become a mere reference mid-life crisis film.

At his 42nd surprise birthday party, George Webber (Dudley Moore) is given a reflective look back at a life that is no longer of stable and secure ground. We come to learn through his own expressions that here is a man that has a tremendous talent for song writing, who has established himself in the art community and has proven to be very successful. A man whom has the world in his pocket! Or does he? Instead, he is in the World's pocket. Tucked blindly away living a sheltered life from the abnormalities of life as known to only him. Or what he has always perceived as abnormal.

It is this very mid-life "awakening" that takes root and begins to grow like a tumor and helps elevate the fear in George's mind that his entire life has been nothing but some schemed joke. That something has rudely illuminated the trick that has suckered him into living too conservative a life.

Besides age playing the only factor for George's fears, is also his voyeuristic sightings of a playboy neighbour (Don Calfa) who displays none of the like qualities that this well disposed and mild-mannered man possesses, with his league of naked women running about and his wild drug induced parties where promiscuity is standard fare.

While much of this could have been safely viewed from afar it is the rather consequential that George falls in love one afternoon with a beautiful Bride in search of her wedding (played by newcomer and future sex goddess Bo Derek) while at a stop sign. One stare is all it takes to roll out the carpet of stumbling adventures for our dear Mr. Webber.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70s kitsch and a beautiful performance 14 Sep 2002
Format:DVD
It's all too easy to look at the bottom line when thinking about Blake Edwards' '10' and to over-simplify it. Yes it is a film about mid-life crisis. Yes it does feature Dudley Moore and yes it did catapault Bo Derek to international stardom. However, what this over-simplification misses is the sheer delight this film gives if you give in to the 70s kitsch which oozes out of every frame.
From 8-track tapes to 70s swingers music, this film has a rich flavour.
Perhaps more importantly, '10' is a film about performances. Dudley Moore sat at a piano in a mexican hotel bar playing "It's Easy to Say" is mesmerizing. The fact that this was filmed live in one-take and that the tune was written by Henri Mancini should be enough to explain the quality of this film. Put Blake Edwards, Dudley Moore, a Henry Mancini tune and a piano together and you can't help but create magic.
Blake Edwards' gift is to create movies where the audience forget they are watching a movie. He relies on performance rather than cinematic trickery and the result, in the case of '10', is perhaps one of the most beautifully relaxed and easy films to watch ever created.
A pure classic to watch again and again.
See, I didn't even talk about the stunning Bo Derek...

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic sex comedy 30 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
Dudley moore is his usual funny self in this comedy about a songwriter / musician who is facing a mid life crisis.
Memorable moments include the telescope on his patio when it hits him and he falls down the bank. Seeing him try to get up again is a real belly laugh. Also Bo Derek in her classic scene running along the beach in slo mo. Dudley burning his feet on the sand is brilliant.
A haunting tune played by dudley in the bar "It's easy to say" is a superb piece of music brilliantly played by Moore.
I searched high and low for this piece of music and eventually found it in a Henry Mancini song book.
It's a fantastic piece to play on the piano.
All in all if you want to put your feet up on a wet sunday afternoon and have a laugh, get this and watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite amusing... 22 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
But Dudley Moore not as good as in Foul Play, which is my favourite Dudley film.
I'd seen bits of this in the past, but never the whole film and after seeing a couple of his films recently, thought I'd take the opportunity to see it all the way through. Worth watching but not nearly as funny as I'd remembered it was. Still, quite a sweet film and an easy watch.

I saw this film when it was first released, and I wanted to refresh my memory. I've bought copies for a friend's daughter, and some friend's who live in Spain. Dudley more made some funny movies.
