So Fine is quite all right. Andrew Bergman, screenwriter on Blazing Saddles and The In-Laws, has come up with a somewhat less zany concoction this time but makes an impressively sharp directorial debut highlighted by some good bedroom farce.

Ryan O’Neal is a Shakespeare-spouting English professor implausibly recruited into his father Jack Warden’s faltering dressmaking firm upon the unchallengable demand of Big Eddie, played by the 7’2″ Richard Kiel.

Latter’s petite wife, Mariangela Melato, quickly corrals O’Neal into the sack (while Kiel’s in it too, no less) and, in his best bumbling manner, O’Neal inadvertantly hits upon a new fashion discovery – skin tight jeans with seethrough behinds.

Despite his smashing success in the garment district, O’Neal retreats to the world of academia but is pursued by Melato, who in turn is followed by the jealous Big Eddie. It all ends up in a slapstick, amateur-hour operatic production of Verdi’s Otello remindful of, among other things, A Night at the Opera.
