Skin Deep DVD Review

Synopsis: Zach is in love. It’s the best thing ever to happen to him. It’s the worst thing ever to happen to him. Because – for now at least – the person Zach loves most is himself. Writer/director Blake Edwards combines slapstick with battle-of-the-sexes brio in this gag-infused tale of a womanizer who finally grows up. John Ritter plays mid-life-crazy Zach, ready to win back his ex-wife…if he can somehow give up his randy habits. Featuring wall-to-wall verbal and physical wit, Skin Deep tops itself with a scene that, even today, remains glowingly funny and original. “I can’t describe it to you. I can’t show it to you,” Joel Siegel of ABC-TV’s Good Morning America said, “but this film has one of the biggest laughs at the movies.”

Review:  John Ritter stars as a lovable man-whore in this fantastic vintage film.   This one is available only online through the Warner Archive.  This one is a fantastic comedy, and one that I'd never had the pleasure of seeing.  I don't think this one has ever even been released onto DVD.  If you own the VHS, here is your chance to upgrade.  If you've never seen this one, give it a try.  The late Ritter turns in a fantastic and original performance.
