So Fine ★★ ½ 1981 (R)

Absentminded English professor O'Neal tries to rescue his father's clothing business from going bottom-up. He accidentally invents peek-a-boo bottomed jeans, which become an immediate hit and make him rich. Comedy smorgasbord, setting outing from sometime novelist Bergman, hits and misses. O'Neal is memorable, as is the ubiquitous Warden and his sidekick. 91m/C VHS . Ryan O'Neal, Jack Warden, Mariangela Melato, Richard Kiel; D: Andrew Bergman; W: Andrew Bergman; M: Ennio Morricone.
