Zach is in love. It’s the best thing ever to happen to him. It’s the worst thing ever to happen to him. Because–for now at least–the person Zach loves the most is himself.

Writer/Director, Blake Edwards parlays slapstick with battle-of-the-sexes brio in this gag-infused tale of a womanizer who finally grows up. John Ritter plays mid-life-crazy Zach, ready to win back his ex-wife…if he can somehow give up his randy habits. Featuring wall-to-wall verbal and physical wit, Skin Deep tops itself with a scene that, even today, remains glowingly funny and original. “I can’t describe it to you. I can’t show it to you,” Joel Siegel of ABC-TV’s Good Morning America said, “but this film has one of the biggest laughs at the movies.”
