Directed by Blake Edwards
As indicated in the post below, I lost one of my film mentors this week. So my "Great Scenes" entry is also a tribute to him. He has listed this as one of his 100 favorite films of all time. Although I don't rank or regard quite as high, I do agree that it's one of the most underrated comedies out there since it was critically dismissed at the time. It's Skin Deep and it's a sex comedy about an alcoholic serial womanizer played by the late John Ritter who gets into a ton of trouble because of his propensity for cheating and hurting his lovers. The most famous (or infamous) scene in this film is the glow-in-the-dark condoms scene which is one of the earliest use of CGI on film. However, I think the funniest scene in the film (and one of the funniest scenes EVER) is this one. After trying to make amends with one of his many girlfriends, John Ritter's character subjects himself to an "electro-stimulation" with hilarious results. It's a combination of John Ritter's talent for physical comedy and Blake Edwards' eye for comedy.
