Comic possibilities are everywhere in Blind Date, and the tireless Mr. Edwards leaves none of them unexploited.

There are pratfalls aplenty and enough animal antics to elicit a few giggles, but Willis and Basinger never quite bring the necessary spark to the roles and the film disappears as fast as a bag of popcorn.

Film Threat

Underappreciated rom-com with Larroquette in top form

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

This is the kind of movie that serves as a reminder that comedy is agonizingly difficult when it works, and even more trouble when it doesn't.

Dustin Putman

[Blu-ray Review] Increasingly contrived and longwinded at just 95 minutes, this is the kind of film that has been helmed with skill despite lackluster material.

Hir or miss, but a couple of the gags that do hit are screamingly funny. A bit involving Graham Stark's butler and a doberman had me howling uncontrollably.

What this movie needs is Cybill Shepherd playing hard to get. Or anybody playing hard to get.

A guilty pleasure from Willis and Bassinger's glory days!

A homage to the classic screwball comedies that lacks charm and needed to be shortened. some parts are hysterically funny though.

Run of the mill slapstick farce that tries far too hard. A wholly unconvincing romantic comedy in which Bruce Willis is reasonably likeable, but Kim Basinger… More
