Movie Reviews

This One Will Surprise You
D. Handrahan | Phoenix, AZ | 06/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was so happy to see this came out on DVD, finally. This is a longtime favorite movie of mine. I love to share it with friends who have never seen it; they invariably enjoy it as much if not more than me. Believe it or not, it's a great "date movie" to cuddle up with....there are enough plot twists to make the story, at one time or another, enjoyable for just about everyone, and yet nobody will be turned off by them. This movie is great fun....enjoy!!!!"
Worth Getting!

"One of my favorite movies. The plot is simple and predictable. The lines are sometimes cheesy but overall, the movie is very entertaining. Love the soundtrack too.Synopsis: "Taylor Worth (Mark Harmon) is a local weatherman in Philadelphia who loves two things: gambling and women. Ned (Mark Blum), his psychiatrist friend, believes that Taylor's behavior is an excuse from establishing permanent relationships. To prove his theory to be correct, he made a bet with Taylor. The bet: Taylor is to be engage to three women in two months. The stakes: A fishing cabin for a Picasso. The catch: Ned will pick the three women and the engagement has to be videotaped.""What happens next is wild rollercoaster ride as Taylor plots, schemes, strategizes and executes plan after plan to beat his friend."What strikes me about the story is how Mark Harmon played his character. He used more finesse rather than the egotistical "God's gift to women" attitude. He is no Cassanova but somehow irresistible. I couldn't help but cheering for him even though the bet was morally wrong. The supporting cast is excellent.If you like a light-heart sexual comedy movie, then this is for you."
Not good, not bad

"If you like early Mark Harmon, then it is worth the time. Otherwise, it is a made for TV style situation comedy. There are some embarrassing moments and a heart-warming ending."
One of my favorites...
Anthony D. Lewis | Cambria Heights, New York United States | 12/17/2001

"...with two of my favorite actors: Mark Harmon and the lovely Madeline Stowe.I caught this on cable back in the early 90's. I had a big crush on Madeline Stowe, since seeing her in "Revenge". So I decided to check this out...and I was not disappointed.Definitely not a general classic, but I love this film. With less-capable and less-likeable actors, this film would (...). This is one of those rare cases where the actors elevate the material. This is one of those rainy-day, "got-nothing-else-to-do" movies.
It's definitely worth a look, and the Amazon price is definitely right. Give it a shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed."
