Year of the Comet
Vaporous romantic-comic adventure revolving around a bottle of Bordeaux of 1811 vintage. Penelope Ann Miller is très charmante as the novice wine expert ("This is just the most exciting thing ever in my life"); Timothy Daly leaves something to be desired as the man -- the Bud man, by preference -- who has everything a woman could want, and more. Essentially inoffensive (backgrounds of the Isle of Skye and the French Riviera: who's to complain?) except maybe when we get to the "more" (i.e., the assets, the holdings, the worth). With Louis Jourdan; written by William Goldman; directed by Peter Yates. 1992.
