Machin asks to see her in person, but she refuses. 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. The woman refuses to be driven away by his behaviour. She follows his instructions, and the two become friends, talking to one another from either side of the wall. Eventually, their mutual wind-up ends when the woman amplifies a metronome, and the man cannot bear it any more.
Fearing a supernatural presence, she flees to Evguenie's house. Davis Your honor Judge Bedford: I was speaking to Mr. However, Machin, angered by the way that Evguenie bullies and belittles Machine, ejects Evguenie from the house.

Blind Date is a comedy about a man and a woman who go on a disastrous first date. The screenplay was rewritten and the draft was given to Edwards. Rarely, for example, has an entire house been moved for less comic effect than in this movie. Two glasses and she's shouting across crowded restaurants and ripping the pockets off of men's suits. Director Blake Edwards takes a sitcom sketch and blows it up into a witless feature film that relies on pratfalls and slapstick.

It's a return to form for Blake Edwards, who has made a good many bad movies over the past 10 years. Basinger, so ravishing in most of her movies, looks dowdy this time. His attention is all to his work and very little to his personal life or appearance.
