The Woman in Red

Gene Wilder's remake of the 1977 French sex farce released here as Pardon mon affaire. Wilder stars as a happily married civil servant thunderstruck by a beautiful girl he glimpses in a parking garage; one thing leads to another, as the genre's logic demands, and Wilder finds himself perched on a window ledge 20 floors above the streets of San Francisco. The film is fairly tolerable as these things go: Wilder takes time off from the steamrolling plot for improvised bits with some actor buddies (including Charles Grodin and Joseph Bologna), and the project as a whole is a lot less mawkish than we've come to expect from Wilder's directorial efforts. Still, it ain't exactly state of the art. With Kelly LeBrock, Judith Ivey, Michael Huddleston, and (for nostalgia) Gilda Radner.
