Audience Reviews for Romance in Manhattan


You can say the movie's very manipulative in trying to overtly appeal to the audiences' emotions, but I really fell for this movie. Everyone in it are just pleasant/decent people. Perhaps the movie could have used an extra scene or two to deepen Rogers and Lederer's romantic relationship, but I still really enjoyed this one.

Very strong romance. Francis Lederer gives a really excellent performance, and Ginger is impressive, as always. The final sequence is hilarious.
