Blame It on Rio (TCF 1984, Michael Caine, Joseph Bologna)



Director Stanley Donen’s remake of the French farce Un Moment D’Egarement (1977) stars Michael Caine and Joseph Bologna as two middle-class fathers who bring their teenage daughters to Rio on a business trip; Caine winds up in an affair with Bologna’s voluptuous offspring, and all manner of uncomfortable moments ensue. Said Pauline Kael, Most of the movie is an attempt to squirm out from under its messy erotic-parental subject.’ Demi Moore has an early role as Caine’s daughter.’
