Indeed. It's the film that shows Keaton could have played the playboy side of Wayne if he'd been required to do so.

It should still be in print, and MGM put out a downright nice DVD. Widescreen, too... thankfully. No features, but unless a film is an "event" film, I'm not too anxious (sp?) for in-depth features anyway. A commentary would be nice, though... I'd love to hear Amy Heckerling talk about Dangerously. It's not often you see a female director (at least, not to my knowledge), and to do such a film.... a male-based comedy with an oft-objectified view of women.... must have been interesting. I wonder what prompted her to direct such a flick, and then to cast Keaton as a playboy type?

This summer, the great adventure returns...
