Blind Date: Blu-ray Review












The Movie:

Walter Davis () is a workaholic. His attention is all to his work and very little to his personal life or appearance. Now he needs a date to take to his company’s business dinner with a new important Japanese client. His brother sets him up with his wife’s cousin Nadia (), who is new in town and wants to socialize, but he was warned that if she gets drunk, she loses control and becomes wild. How will the date turn out – especially when they encounter Nadia’s ex-boyfriend David ()?

Before he was John Maclaine and before she was Vicki Vale, Willis and Basinger went on a Blind Date. This romantic comedy is one of those that I would catch while channel surfing on a Sunday afternoon and end up watching the whole thing. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve seen it so when the opportunity arose to revisit it I just couldn’t help it. I appreciate the comedy chops that Willis possesses and you can see that so early on in his career that he had the whole package. His brand of comedy is hilarious for the simple fact that it’s something I like to call “Funny Rage”. The best moments came when he was flying off the handle and making a scene. Basinger was surprisingly funny in this as well. Her drunk antics were pretty much what made the movie and steered it into Willis’ “Funny Rage”. It’s really a good movie to go back and see these two actors in their early days and it’s also just a fun film to lose yourself in. It’s not the greatest but you’ll find that it quickly becomes a guilty pleasure that you can’t help but watch.

Blind Date is available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD from Image Entertainment
