Movie Info

In this satirical romp, an English professor ends up forced to abandon his ivory tower and enter the New York garment business to save his father, who has become dangerously indebted to a heartless loan shark, and his clothing business. More trouble ensues when the professor finds a new lover, who happens to be the sexy wife of the hulking loan shark. Things look bleak until the clumsy academic accidentally creates a new style of jeans with a see-through-bottom. The radical style becomes all the rage and the father and son find themselves rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Critic Reviews for So Fine

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Part of the fun of So Fine is the way it plays fast and loose with comic modes; since you're never sure what's coming next, every scene provides a surreal twist.

October 8, 2021 | Full Review…

An impressively sharp directorial debut highlighted by some good bedroom farce.

July 25, 2007 | Full Review…

On the long list of comedy ideas screenwriters should never have had, this film must rank high.

Top Critic

Its comic episodes are nicely controlled, and the movie has a consistent zany style.

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

It's all about as funny as a bad case of heartburn at three o'clock in the morning.

October 4, 2019 | Full Review…

By turns sophisticated and satirical.
