He agreed to direct contingent he be allowed re-write that draft. At that point, Penn dropped out and Madonna met with Edwards and she dropped out as well. Billy Vera & The Beaters appear in the bar scene, playing several songs.
Blind Date holds a 21% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 24 reviews.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film two and a half stars out of four and wrote, "There are individual moments in this movie that are as funny as anything Edwards has ever done, but they're mostly sight gags and don't grow out of the characters. Willis plays a nerd so successfully that he fades into the shrubbery and never really makes us care about his fate.
Basinger, so ravishing in most of her movies, looks dowdy this time.
The next year, in 1988, he had an action classic called Die Hard coming.
Next year there should be coming Die Hard 4.0, so can't wait to see that. There are John Larroquette as David Bedford, Nadia's ex, who's doing an excellent job and William Daniels, who's known as the voice of KITT in Knight Rider and George Feeny in Boy Meets World is marvelous.
Blind Date is a 1987 romantic comedy film, directed by Blake Edwards and starring Bruce Willis, in his first leading film role, and Kim Basinger.
Blind Date earned mostly negative reviews from critics, but was a financial success and opened at number one at the box office.
The DIE HARD star turned heads when he arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of sequel OCEAN'S TWELVE with Nadia Bjorlin on Wednesday (08DEC04) night.
Bjorlin, 24, said of her 49-year-old beau, "Men who look like real men are sexy." Willis split from former Baywatch beauty Brooke Burns, 26, in June (04) after a ten month romance.
It was a complete mystery to me why it was so panned on release, but reading some of the comments here I am glad to see that this minor gem is finally getting the recognition it deserves.
All I'll add is: dobermans, golf balls, moonwalking and an abject lesson in why you should never get your new girlfriend drunk.
However, as the evening goes on, Nadia begins to drink and behave in a wild manner.
