10

Directed by Blake Edwards. Starring Dudley Moore, Julie Andrews, Robert Webber, Bo Derek. (1979, R, 122 min.)

The movie that really launched Bo Derek's career, as well as a billion blond cornrows and a smutty giggle for Ravel's "Bolero," 10 is the story of a middle-aged man hung up on sex. It's vintage Blake Edwards territory, a place that some find hilarious and others find fretful.

S.O.B.
