FUNNY ABOUT LOVE (1990 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Funny About Love examines all the different ways to produce babies and reaches a final conclusion about what has the highest priority in relationships. Surprisingly, the movie casts mostly unknown persons…who can act. This adult film, although slow at times, is worth mentioning for a single viewing.

Storyline

Duffy Bergman (Gene Wilder) works through a marital crisis that involves not being able to produce a baby.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Leonard Nimoy for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Jon Avnet and Jordan Kerner for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Meg Lloyd Bergman (Christine Lahti), Daphne (Mary Stuart Masterson), E.T. (Robert Prosky), Hugo (Stephen Tobolowsky), Adele (Anne Jackson), Claire (Susan Ruttan), Vivian (Jean De Baer), and Dr. Benjamin (David Margulies).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Gene Wilder, highly entertaining with a unique blend of acting skill, lends an unusual flavor to this story that makes it worth a single viewing, but the movie doesn’t fly high in comedic value.
