Synopsis

In a small Irish town, a postman delivers the wrong film for the monthly movie show at the village church. Instead of Charlton Heston's "The Ten Commandments," the projectionist shows the movie "10," starring Dudley Moore and a scantily clad Bo Derek. As a result, the single men of the town begin to fantasize about meeting exotic women and pen a communal letter to the Miami Herald to lure single female companions to join them at the town's annual St. Martha's Day Dance. As the men anxiously prepare themselves for the arrival of the American women they go to great lengths to make themselves more attarctive mates -- much to the bemusement of the women who run the village post office. After intercepting the letter before it ever left town, the female townfolk decide to teach their men a few lessons about courtship.
