Not the best in image and sound quality, but better than DVD and an unmisssble comedy with the typical Blake Edwards touch. Would be nice to see it restored and remastered since it is filmed in anamorphic 35mm Panavision. Note: the disc is region coded for region A (USA) so you have to have region free gear or an American player to play it.

This is one 80's movie! Which is fine considering that particular decade gave us so much nostalgia. I just feel weird giving Blind Date 4 stars because, even though it's great, it does contain a highly distressing 'disco' scene that will make you cringe.

Walter Davis (Bruce Willis in his first movie) is a stressed workaholic who must bring a date to a business dinner to impress a Japanese client. In desperation his brings his sister-in-laws cousin Nadia (a brunette, and prettier Kim Basinger) who is very cute, but has a drink problem. Despite warnings not to get her drunk, Walter buys her champagne and, like some sort of human mogwai, she transforms into a crazed party animal. Things go very bad for Walter as Nadia proceeds to wreck his life. Not only that, but her totally mad ex-boyfriend David (John Larroquette) is stalking them at every turn. William Daniels (the voice of KITT from Knight Boat) even has a funny role as a disgruntled judge and the late, great Phil Hartman plays Walter's brother.

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.

There are loads of hilarious moments and I suggest you pick it up whenever you see it. Just use 80's block factor 1000.

The DVD is in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with average Dolby 2.0 sound. A trailer is included.

This was Bruce Willis' movie debut way back in 1987. It's a beautifully paced farce with one hilarious moment after another as the drunken Kim Basinger wrecks a restaurant, Willis' car, and gets him sacked! Blake Edwards directs solidly and there's even a happy ending. The stars perform well together and John Laroquette gives a wonderfully manic performance as Basingers wildly jealous ex-boyfriend. A must-see.

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.

bought this film cos i saw it at the cinema years ago,
it stars a young bruce willis and kim basinger,
willis is having trouble getting a date for a party,
and ends up on a hilarious blind date with basinger,
very much in the style of planes trains and automobiles,
just when you think things can't get worse for him
they inevitably do.
well worth a watch and well worth the money.
