Charming '80s romantic comedy has innuendo, swearing.

...an entertaining yet undeniably forgettable romcom that benefits substantially from the stars' charismatic work.

It's difficult to call a movie this light and insubstantial a classic, but it's as likeable as ever more than two decades after its initial release.

It's a neat trick, being Steve Martin. He's so good; his movies will get even better.

In an era when romance seems to have taken second place to sex, it's heartwarming to see a film like Roxanne bring back the loveliness of love.

The film's success rests firmly with Martin. He wrote the warm-hearted script and delivers a sparkling performance of physical and verbal gymnastics that he hasn't been able to match since.

Far and away [Martin's] richest film to date, lyrical, sweet-natured, touching, and very, very funny.

Terrific and charming "Cyrano" update, with one of Martin's best performances and his best screenplay.

A feel-good movie with some perky riffs on romance, beauty, and the value of an inquiring mind.

The nose itself is a perfect prop for a man who began his career with a fake arrow through his head, a man who has since evolved from a coolly absurdist stand-up comic to a fully formed, amazingly nimble comic actor.
