Skin Deep

Blake Edwards' Skin Deep finds the director centering again on the trials and tribulations of his favourite kind of character - the charming, womanizing sot. Fortunately, he freshens up his trademark formula by satirizing the most contemporary of current social practices: safe sex.

Blake Edwards’ Skin Deep finds the director centering again on the trials and tribulations of his favourite kind of character – the charming, womanizing sot. Fortunately, he freshens up his trademark formula by satirizing the most contemporary of current social practices: safe sex.

John Ritter is a dissipated writer with writer’s block who is always to be found with a drink in his hand and an eye on a potential sexual conquest.

Ritter is married to a pretty (and pretty dull) newscaster (Alyson Reed) who is smart enough, however, to boot her husband out when she finds him in bed with her hairdresser (Julianne Phillips).

Revenge is sweet and Ritter gets his due in any number of silly and embarrassing situations which he handles with nearly perfect comic timing.
