American Dreamer Reviews
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.
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!!!
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!
