    Trying to think of the name of a movie I
    regularly saw bits and pieces of (I never
    watched it completely).

    I think the film was made in the late '80s
    as it played heavily on HBO during the early
    years of cable television.

    The film was pegged as a comedy, starred an
    actor with curly black hair.

    All I remember is that the film began with a
    documentary-style film trailer countdown (4...3...2...1)
    the kind you see at the beginning of projected films
    -or- on the cover of Foreigner's album "4")

    The film ends with the guy rowing away from the
    waterfront restaurant he just met his date at.

    I think the film was called something like
    My Life or similar.

    Hoping someone recognizes this title.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if this is any help to you as I've never seen the picture, but your description quoted above sounds like Soup For One, with Saul Rubinek, who has curly, black hair. Cheers.

    That's it!

    Sorry to mislead everyone with My Life,
    but that is indeed the movie I was thinking of!

    You guys are great!

    For anyone that has seen it completely...is it
    considered a fairly good film? Thinking of buying
    it on DVD if it is available.

    Hmmm...

    Not available on DVD as of yet.

    ..but it is a Warner Brothers title. I'll
    have to suggest it.
