Blake Edwards (Victor/Victoria) wrote and directed this sharp if somewhat underachieving satire about sexual politics, in which an unrepentant playboy (Perry King), with a long trail of broken hearts behind him, dies and comes back as a woman (Ellen Barkin). Barkin is terrific as a babe with the mind and soul of a stud, and her struggles to reconcile her male impulses with the realities of her new body are the best material in the film. Jimmy Smits is fine as her best friend (back when she was a he, however), and JoBeth Williams is memorable as one of the deceased fellow's castoffs--she ironically becomes an ally of his incarnation as a woman. This isn't Edwards at his greatest, but it's a highly watchable minor entry in his canon. --Tom Keogh
And so, the situation is set in place providing lots of fun and laughs.
Eventually, Steve does get to heaven, but you will never guess in a million years who the girl is that says something nice about him. Only Blake Edwards could have contrived-up an outcome like this.
The movie is good and for the price worth a look-see.
I think EVERYONE (adult) should see this at least once. It's HILARIOUS!
