Let’s go back to 1989
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
While it bombed at the box office, evidently the world just wasn’t ready for McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey), in this 1989 comedy, while still a kid, the movie has become a treasure from the past.
Something strange is happening in Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills women have become deliriously happy. Not because they’ve gotten the best table at Spago, but because there are roses on their pillows. Because they have a tango partner. Because someone wants to take their picture. Because they pour out their troubles to a sympathetic listener.
The unlikely Romeo is young Randy Bodek (Patrick Dempsey), a reluctant Loverboy whose own girlfriend dumped him because he didn’t know how to treat a woman.
His summer job as a pizza delivery boy becomes a wild escapade bringing romance into the lives of some gorgeous, but frustrated, Beverly Hills wives. “There are a lot of women out there who do not believe in love anymore-all they want is a little romance and respect.” And a pizza with extra anchovies.
The movie had a budget of 8.5 million dollars and brought in less than 4 million dollars at the box office that year.
