The Man Who Loved Women (1983)

“You’re a fast worker. I better leave before one of us gets pregnant.” – Agnes Chapman

“I’m not that fast.” – David Fowler

Number of Times Seen – 1 (20 May 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A man obsessed with women goes to a psychiatrist in order to find a cure for his obsessive behavior.

My Take on it – Very fun romantic film that works so well.

Burt Reynolds is superb in the title role and makes the viewer truly believe that he can be so convincing to the women he encounters.

The film is able to throw in some very funny scenes that helps keep things fun throughout.

The way that this character is developed is done in a realistic way and allows the viewer to believe that someone could act like this and try and find a way to cure himself of his “problem”.

Blake Edwards was a great director who is able to mix drama and comedy together so well.

His wife, Julie Andrews also has a prominent role in the film and creates a balance for the care free way that Reynold’s character acts throughout.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Even though they only completed one movie together, Burt Reynolds has said that next to Hal Needham, Blake Edwards was his favorite director with whom to work. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
