This fall-spring relationship may be a little bit difficult to understand but James Garner ends up being charming enough to win over Sally Field. One suspects this is due to a lack of options. Very sweet rather than creepy.
(1985 Director: Martin Ritt) Wonderful chemistry between James Garner and Sally Field in this tale about a divorcee who must pull herself up by her bootstraps who is raising her son on her own after being left by her very flaky ex-husband who resurfaces to complicate her independence. Lots of truths in this film and some excellent humor.
I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. It was serious and funny all at the same time. The cast was great - yes, even the young Corey Haim. James Garner continually surprises me. His best-actor nomination was well-deserved.
Love this movie...i was a big Corey Haim fan back in the day...lost boys...licensed to Drive the whole Corey time....It's about a single mom who moves her and her son to a new small town. No major action it's just about there life adjusting to this new town.
There wasn't one thing I didn't love about this movie. James Garner is an excellent actor who can play any part to perfection and Sally Field is a seasoned veteran who played her part like it was made for her as she does in all her films. This movie is sweet, funny and inspiring all at the same time. Its one of my all time favorites!
This is kind of a girlie movie and normally I'm opposed to them but this is just such a good movie with great acting till that overrides everything else. I could watch it over and over and there isn't even a gun in it and nothing blows up!!
Before Bill Murray/Scarlett Johansson's odd pairing, we had Sally Field/James Garner... and while 'Murphy's Romance' isn't nearly as good as 'Lost in Translation,' the acting is top notch, as is the chemistry between the two leads.
