Roll back the years to those most innocent times, yay back in the good old 80s.
The first sign is the pink credit lettering, recently Drive got applause for doing this, but this is the original pink credit lettering baby.
Anyway onto the film. This is proper slapstick comedy, but its served up by great acting from Bruce Willis and Kim Basinger. Blake Edwards has had finer moments in his career but he directs well enough, just count how long the scenes are drawn out (Hitchcock style) before a cut.
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.
All in all, Blind Date is a silly film, but it works well and is rescued by superior actors. Well worth a watch.
