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'.
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.comSee all Product description

He plays a 40 year old famous composer, George Webber (based on Andrew Lloyd?) going through a middle aged crisis. The film is split into a series of very very funny episodes as he tries to eventually meet Bo Derek, the girl he briefly glimpses as shes on her way to her wedding, and rates her as his '10'.
A must see for and Dudley fans who haven't already seen it and some beautiful piano scenes from Dud, showcasing what a fantastic musician he really was.
The scene where he has to watch the vicar playing the organ, trying to impress Dudley, had me in tears when I first saw it!
10/10 for me!
However on revisiting the movie recently, I'm afraid to admit that it no longer has the same appeal as it once did.
“10” arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. With no expensive restoration, the picture is soft and dated. Colours are murky at times. Flesh tones are occasionally oversaturated. Close-ups, however, sport a pleasing level of fine detail; shots of Derek applying tanning oil leave no doubt that she is indeed a perfect 10. At least, this blu-ray picture is much superior to its DVD counterpart. (3/5)
“10” arrives on blu-ray with DTS-HD Master Audio mono track. Dialogue is clear. Henry Mancini’s music has a narrow soundstage. The duet of Julie Andrews and Dudley Moore in “It’s Easy to Say” is nicely performed. The piano key sounds a little thin. Personally, I am disappointed in that only a tiny portion of Ravel’s Bolero was played in the movie. If you want to hear Henry Mancini’s full version of Bolero, you have to listen to the soundtrack CD. (3/5)
In “10”, Dudley Moore projects a genuine sweetness that's quite endearing, portraying George going through male menopause. In the Special Features, Julie Andrews said that she found it quite easy to work with Blake Edwards, director, producer and writer and her husband. And Bo Derek’s doe-eyed sincerity and matter-of-fact way of expressing her character's cavalier attitude toward sex go a long way toward driving home the film's point. As for her physical beauty...well, let's just say the movie is called '10' for a reason. (4/5)
“10” may not score a perfect 10 on the movie meter or rate half that many stars, but it remains a witty and often wise battle-of-the-sexes, male menopause comedy. Although Dudley Moore and Julie Andrews both gave good performance, for me, Bo Derek was the main attraction and my main reason to purchase this disc.
