It's a neat trick, being Steve Martin. He's so good; his movies will get even better.
In the end it's hopelessly sappy stuff.
Far and away [Martin's] richest film to date, lyrical, sweet-natured, touching, and very, very funny.
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.
Martin claims to have written 25 script drafts for this film, which indicates the uphill trudge he faced...what he has produced is Steve Martin playing a nice 'n' wacky guy in a sappy story.
All of the corners of this movie have been filled with small, funny moments.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The most unabashed, and most satisfying, romantic movie to come along in years. It's a swooning, delicate, heart-on-its-sleeve work.
