Movie Info

Struggling artist Daisy Morgan is attending a posh cocktail party at a museum when masked machine-gun-toting crooks suddenly appear, force everyone to disrobe and tie them up after robbing them. Daisy ends up tied to successful but neurotic, romantically-challenged mystery writer Sean Stein in this effervescent romantic comedy. She has no idea who he is and the paranoid Stein, not wanting another gold-digger, is happy to have her believe that he too is struggling with his craft.

Critic Reviews for Surrender

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Surrender is an astonishing case of a movie that can do no wrong for its first half and little right thereafter.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A minor comedy with pleasant moments and seemingly original scenes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Caine and Field make for a great couple!

July 23, 2008 | Rating: 3/5

Could be one of the most instantly forgettable movies ever made.

October 6, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

Belson's treatment of this theme is far too heavy-handed.

Audience Reviews for Surrender

Sally Field gives a sparkling performance as a confused woman in love with Michael Caine, Steve Guttenberg, and money, not necessarily in that order. Caine and Guttenberg are superb.
