Ask anyone about 10, and in all likelihood, they'll remember it for one scene: a woman in a gold bathing suit running in slow motion across a sun-soaked beach. I'd even be willing to bet more people will know the scene than can name the movie. However, there's a story attached, and while it's okay, it simply didn't speak to my tastes.

10 centers around George Webber (Dudley Moore), a successful songwriter who, by all indications, is set for life. He's rolling in cash and has everything he could ever want, including a beautiful and successful girlfriend, Samantha (Julie Andrews). The problem is, George is stuck in a mid-life crisis. He has it all, but all he really wants is freedom, which is making him miserable.

George is pulled out of his self-imposed depression by Jenny (Bo Derek), a beautiful woman whom George instantly declares a "10." He's instantly smitten and decides Jenny is the answer to all his problems. From there, 10 follows George through a series of mishaps while in pursuit of Jenny.

George's misadventures form the bulk of the film's plot. Despite their billing and importance to the story, Samantha and Jenny have very little to do with what happens from scene to scene. Instead, 10 is completely and totally Dudley Moore's movie. He's a grown man with what amounts to a schoolboy crush on a seemingly unobtainable woman. It makes for a few funny moments, but only if you're a fan of Moore's style of comedy - which I am not. Expect a lot of jokes about Moore's height as well as a tiresome drunk bit.

The problem with 10 is with such a reliance on Moore's antics, there's very little to the film. There's an obvious attempt to build a bigger narrative, but with Moore as the only well-developed character, there's very little to build on. If you're a fan of Moore's style of humor, there's something to 10. If not, it's an empty story.

As far as the Blu-ray release is concerned, 10 is a less-than-impressive offering. The transfer isn't the best. Blacks are light and the picture is a bit muddy. The release is also light on extras. There's a short "Behind-the-Scenes" featurette and a trailer.

I'm more than certain there's an audience for 10 and I'm just as certain it's not me. 10 has its moments, but ultimately it's something that will appeal more to viewers who've already seen the movie or remember Dudley Moore, rather than something that will pull in a new audience.
