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.
