Rating:
PG-13
Blind Date is a comedy about a man and a woman who go on a disastrous first date. Walter Davis (Bruce Willis) agrees to go on a blind date with a woman named Nadia Gates (Kim Basinger) at the suggestion of his brother, Ted Davis (Phil Hartman). He is advised by Ted not to allow Nadia to have any alcohol, but assumes that the warning was only a joke. When they go out, Nadia is initially very shy with Walter but begins to open up when he orders her a drink. Things quickly deteriorate as Nadia quickly gets very drunk and begins acting like a lunatic. Worse, her jealous ex-boyfriend, David Bedford (John Larroquette), is apparently stalking her and grows enraged at Walter for taking her on a date. Eventually, complete lunacy reigns as Walter chases Nadia from mishap to mishap, culminating in a shootout at a party that may spell doom for Walter.
