year: 1983
cast: Dudley Moore, Elizebeth McGovern, Ron Silver
writer/director: Marshall Brickman
rating: **

After "10" Dudley Moore appeared in a string of romantic comedies, and this outing is one of them. Written by "Annie Hall" collaborater Marshall Brickman, this is another "nervous romance" but has little to no charm or purpose. It's hard to believe gorgeous Elizebeth McGovern would be smitten with the dwarfish Moore, as a New York shrink, or Ron Silver, who plays her actor boyfriend. The acting is decent but you'll find yourself sleeping on the couch halfway through. Camoes by Alec Guinness (as the ghost of Freud), John Huston and Wallace Shawn add little to nothing overall.
