story is a bit weak, and it is hard to believe. But you can stop asking questions and take the film for the nonsence it is and escape a crapy day, trust me her's is a lot worse

Yes it's very hokey but there's also something very magical about this film. It's a bit of fluff but oh so much fun.

I love this movie and quote it often. Chances are- if you know me- you have heard some great lines from it and never knew.

A strange little romantic comedy from the '80s where JoBeth Williams wins a writing contest to Paris, gets hit by a car and wakes up thinking she is the main character in the romance thriller novels she is a fan of.

Expecting a schlocky and silly misadventure on the streets of Paris, it actually turned out to be a fun little movie that takes the romance novel concept to a realistic level by exploring the concept of marriage and human nature.

This one was a family favorite... To this day, we still say "To.....Mom" (put a lot of thought into that one, huh...?) when we toast at get-togethers! We're nerds, I know. Because of this movie, growing up I wanted to speak 5 languages and be a spy! :)

This is one of my favorite "hidden gems" films that most people haven't seen.

I took my mother on a date to see this movie in the theaters. My mom simply laughed the entire movie. She was so taken with the film that when it eventually found its way on VHS (come on people, we're talking 1986 here) she held a "Rebecca Ryan" party at home and invited all her lady friends over to enjoy the movie with her!

The script is witty, the supporting cast is classic and there are some unexpected twists that will pleasantly surprise you!

This will be a difficult movie to find, but if you do -- ENJOY!!!

This is my favorite movie. Nobody's seen it unless I've sat them down to watch it. It's got everything! Romance, drama, suspense, mystery, comedy... LOVE IT. Call me if you wanna watch it with me. :)

This remains one of my household's alltime favourite movies, one that we watch when we need cheering up, when we need to be in the company of an "old friend".

Mostly, American Dreamer, slipped by the public at large in 1984 but it discovered a life on cable and vhs and, thank heaven, recently on dvd.

It's a wonderfully adventurous romantic comedy with delightful performances (and characters!), witty writing (it's VERY FUNNY, the plots and twists and coincidences) and, hands down, bar none, the absolutely best fake out ending of all time. I was shocked and taken completely by surprise!

Worth Watching

An awesomely radical movie, and who doesn't love JoBeth Williams?

JoBeth Williams is nastay.

This is one that, like Princess Bride, I can watch over and over again. I can't understand why this has not become a cult classic because everyone I've shared this movie with has fallen in love with it.

Love it! My sister and I used to watch this just about every weekend. It's not "Cinema," but it's a great "Flick."
