Lots of very good looking topless women in this movie. Lots of early pre-aids STD epidemic sex attitudes. Does Dudley Moore ever play anyone besides a rich drunk? O yes he plays an elf somewhere else. This is a movie from the 70s dont expect much as far as twists and turns. It has a lesson.

Cast Gets a "10" But Director Blake Edwards and DVD Stumble!

"After viewing "10" on VHS, our family purchased the DVD specifically to determine the noise decibal reading on that old woman passing gas, and to hear Dudley Moore play the piano (not necessarily in that order). In addition, I secretly wanted a better glimpse of those butt naked "9's" that (Peeping Tom) Dudley had located via telescope. Although sometimes heralded as a "mindless comedy", any movie featuring the exploits of an uninhibited Dudley Moore character (especially one going through a mid life crisis) is bound to have some priceless moments. Moore provides delightful hysterics, especially as a pick up artist with a novocain-numbed mouth at the local coffee shop. His less than tragic slide down a hillside, and then scampering back up to catch his wife's (the incomparable Julie Andrews) telephone call (before the emergence of cell phones) is a classic among classic scenes! But the luster fades as this film moves along, and we are left with just one obvious and bittersweet conclusion: Only the pairing of Moore and Andrews as husband and wife allows the film to reach marginal success. Bo Derek is beautiful, provacative, enchanting, and a genuine "10" for the role, but her presence is just icing on the cake. For those of you still wondering about the noise meter level: The sound didn't even register. For a while, we thought maybe the woman had recently passed, and was just a ghost or apparition. Then I went back and read the "technical details" section on amazon.com, only to discover that DVD sound quality was rated a microscopic 1.5! I will always read technical details BEFORE purchasing the DVD when this situation arises again in the future. ...."
Five Stars for Dudley and Julie

"In 10, Dudley Moore gives a five star performance on two fronts as both a comic and music genius. Film fans may be unaware that Moore scored several films and performed as a concert pianist in his career in addition to his acting talents.Moore plays a fortyish songwriter who has developed the mother of all mid-life crisis's. Julie Andrews (who looks fantastic here BTW) shines as his impatient love interest and Bo Derek is lovely as Dudley's fantasy girl. Brian Dennehy and Dee Wallace-Stone are very good in supporting roles.The DVD transfer is good especially for a film that has a little age. The sound is mono only which is disappointing but understandable. This is one of Blake Edwards best films and a must see for fans of romantic comedy. It is sad and sobering to realize that both Moore's and Andrew's gifts have been diminished by illness. Grab this DVD and take time to remember how really talented they both are."
Beauty contest of the soul

"Dudley Moore plays a fellow by the name of George Webber. Webber is a wealthy, accomplished & respected musician who has a great many friends and admirers. There is one problem. He is in his 40s and begins to experience his mid-life crisis. He is restless & bored with life. Although settling in to middle age, he finds that he is still attracted to women in their 20s (a "problem" that I myself experience).
By chance, he spies a beautiful young woman (played by Bo Derek) who is on her way to her wedding. She is the most gorgeous creature he has ever seen and he immediately becomes obsessed with her. This obsession leads to a great many mis-adventures that lead the viewer through the balance of the film.
While it is not apparent on the surface, I would characterize 10 as a dark comedy. It is somewhat morose to think about getting older and no longer being young & vibrant. The creative ways in which the film differentiates Moore's character from the young lover of Bo Derek's persona are almost creepy.
Aside from the tragic loss of youth, the film is also a commentary on the issue of people's personalities not matching their exterior appearance. While she is beautiful, Bo Derek's character is found to be quit wanting on the personality side of the ledger. She is shallow and superficial. Insofar as being a worthwhile person, she can hardly compete with George's girlfriend (portrayed by Julie Andrews).
Of all of Blake Edward's films, this one is probably in the top 5. It is insightful into what troubles we human beings as we grapple with your mortality and the decline of our bodies. On the upside, there is also some gratuitous nudity, although they could have shown a LOT more of Bo Derek. If Amazon had a 10 star rating, I would give this one a 9!"
