Tate Donovan, a geek biochemist with no luck at all with women, is persuaded by his friends to visit a gypsy, Madame Ruth. She gives him "Love Potion No. 8", an elixir which can potentially force anyone of the opposite sex to instantly fall in love with him. He shares the potion with his friend, Diane, and together they embark on a "scientific evaluation" that gets out of hand.

About once a month my friends and I get together and do something different for fun. Sometimes we go bowling or miniature golf or a movie or something. One night we went down to a gypsy palm reader at 34th and Vine.
Fun Little Film
This movie is not great cinema, but as long as you don't go into it
for earth-shattering insight and emotional depth, its actually an amusing
little time waster. The movie's goofy but original premise conceals its
relatively cliched plots, and all concerned appear to be having fun.
Bottomline, if you avoid taking either the movie or yourself too
LP #9 is good for a few laughs.
