    The best comedy movie ever made!

    LA Story is an ode to Los Angeles- the sunny city of angels. Bathed in early 90s sunlight, which when exposed to the film stock of that time created an atmosphere without even trying LA Story is Steve Martin at his best. This is a quirky, offbeat and yet endearing film that includes among other things a reference to Mel Gibson and a talking freeway Billboard. Victoria Tennant is nice as the newly arrived Englishwoman who Martin's character falls for. And Sarah Jessica Parker is fresh faced as the bumbling sales girl before she took off to rule the streets of New York. But this is Steve Martin's movie and he is excellent as the straight faced funnyman trying to make sense of his career and the city he lives in. This is early 90s movie magic at its finest and one of the best heartwarming comedy films out there.

    LA Story is a love letter to the city of Los Angeles and there are some very gooey scenes which will make you want to visit the city of angels. Steve Martin during this time was at the top of his game and he is in sublime form here. His real life partner at the time Victoria Tennant is equally good as a new arrival to the city. Sarah Jessica Parker long before her famed stint in NYC is refreshing as the young, perky woman. L.A story is a very good comedy and an ode to Los Angeles. (An ode to the city of Angels).

    A wonderful (romantic?) comedy which spoofs all of the classic stereotypes found in early 90's Los Angeles. This movie still holds up nearly 30 years later.

    LA Story is a great comedy film. Its comedy is of a serious nature and many may not find it enjoyable. Shot in the early 90s the film has a sort of sunny glow that paints the entire Los Angeles city scape.

    I actually thought this was a quirky, slight fantasy tale that held my interest.

    L.A. Story is a boring, incomprehensible film that lacks such things as a coherent plot and believable characters.

    A funny showcase for Steve Martian to prove again why he is one of our greatest comedic actors. Sarah Jessica Parker is also really great and funny.
