Critic Reviews for Gregory's Girl
Bill Forsyth, formerly a maker of industrial films, made Gregory's Girl for $400,000 with a cast of non-professionals. It provides more pure entertainment than many of Hollywood's overproduced epics.
Much of the pic's peculiar fascination comes from tangential scenes, limning each character's odd obsession, be it food, girls, soccer, or just watching the traffic drive by.
Maybe only grown-ups should see this movie. You know, people who have gotten over the pains of unrequited love (hollow laugh).
It floats effortlessly over its landscape, seeing all from a marvelously cockeyed perspective all its own.
Audience Reviews for Gregory's Girl
I so don't get British humor.
There is only one thing negative I could say about Gregory's Girl...it makes you sad that the innocence of first love and first dates is gone forever, and also makes me wish my school had been as cool as Gregory's. Excellent performances by all and sundry, no attempts to sacrifice realism for laughs and Clare Grogan at her prettiest. Special mention must be given to the music, wonderfully twee and with a kind of nostalgic delight. Only Bill Forsyth seems able to avoid mawkishness yet still make utterly inoffensive and delectable movies. One of my top ten favourite films and one I never stop enjoying.
This movie was disappointing, it's not that bad, it's okay, it's just disappointing. It's an interesting look at young love, but it's not funny, and the story is kind of all over the place at times. Overall, it's just okay.
