So Fine
Trying to recreate the screwball comedy success of his collaborations with Peter Bogdanovitch, actor Ryan O'Neal headlined this sporadically funny mixture of light farce and social satire. O'Neal stars as Bobby, an intellectual English professor who leaves his job when his father Jack (Jack Warden) appeals to him for help. A garment manufacturer, Jack is in serious debt to humongous loan shark Eddie (Richard Kiel), and he desperately needs his business to provide the capital to pay Eddie back. Completely by accident, Bobby invents the solution to his dad's problem: see-through denim blue jeans with strategically placed holes in the rear that expose one's backside. The fickle public goes mad over the "sexy" new style, and the money starts flowing in, but Bobby exacerbates his father's problems greatly when he falls for and begins dating the amorous Lira (Mariangela Melato), whose husband is none other than Eddie. So Fine was the feature directorial debut of popular Blazing Saddles (1974) writer Andrew Bergman, who would wait eight years before getting behind the camera again with the much more successful The Freshman (1990). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Can't be played in DVD recorders or in PCs


    After I bought this DVD, I noticed a small blurb on the back of the DVD cover stating that the DVD would only work in DVD players and may not work in other DVD devices or PCs. I have a combination VHS/DVD player/recorder. I could not play the DVD in my machine so had to return it for a refund. I would not have ordered it if I had known in advance that it couldn't be played on a DVD recorder. I have never had a problem playing other DVDs on my machine. The description of this item on the web should let consumers know of this limitation. Also, I condemn Warner Brothers for making a DVD with this type of restriction. Do they really think that someone is going to copy this DVD? This movie came out 30 years ago and isn't well-known today. Shame on Warner Brothers for being so paranoid. Now I can't watch this movie except to find a VHS version on eBay.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
