The Tall Guy
- Directed by: Mel Smith
- Cast: Jeff Goldblum, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson
Curtis' later rom-coms may be more famous, but his debut feature script is perhaps his funniest: the story of Dexter, a lovelorn Yank actor (Goldblum), and Kate Lemon, the appropriately-named nurse he romances (Thompson). The leads are a delight, and Smith's direction triumphs in a ludicrously athletic sex scene in which they trash a bedroom. Atkinson does a nice line in self-caricature as Ron Anderson, Dexter's horrible employer.
