Light and likable, with hearts unabashedly all over its sleeves, Roxanne is a winning romantic comedy whose appeal should cross age barriers and backgrounds -- giving it an across-the-board promise.

Witty, sweet, utterly delightful.

Roxanne has a way of making you feel good even though you know it may be the corniest movie you've seen. Filled with romance, from its plot to the scenery, Roxanne makes no apologies for its sweet fervor.

Charming '80s romantic comedy has innuendo, swearing.

...an entertaining yet undeniably forgettable romcom that benefits substantially from the stars' charismatic work.

for all the things this movie is, it's probably Martin's fault.

It's difficult to call a movie this light and insubstantial a classic, but it's as likeable as ever more than two decades after its initial release.

another in a long line of Cyrano De Bergerac adaptations but easily one of the very best

I'd call it reasonably successful, but I can't get excited about it.

It's a neat trick, being Steve Martin. He's so good; his movies will get even better.
February 2, 2009
In an era when romance seems to have taken second place to sex, it's heartwarming to see a film like Roxanne bring back the loveliness of love.

In the end it's hopelessly sappy stuff.
February 2, 2009
The film's success rests firmly with Martin. He wrote the warm-hearted script and delivers a sparkling performance of physical and verbal gymnastics that he hasn't been able to match since.
February 20, 2007
Very good adaptation of Cyrano with Steve Martin in one his best roles.
| Original Score: 5/5
June 24, 2006
Far and away [Martin's] richest film to date, lyrical, sweet-natured, touching, and very, very funny.
January 11, 2004
Sparkling romantic fun; Martin is superb and Hannah is delightful
| Original Score: 4/5
January 9, 2004
Terrific and charming "Cyrano" update, with one of Martin's best performances and his best screenplay.
| Original Score: 5/5
July 10, 2003
A feel-good movie with some perky riffs on romance, beauty, and the value of an inquiring mind.
May 20, 2003
The nose itself is a perfect prop for a man who began his career with a fake arrow through his head, a man who has since evolved from a coolly absurdist stand-up comic to a fully formed, amazingly nimble comic actor.
March 28, 2003
Shockingly dated, but saved by Martin's effervescent charm and Hannah's radiant beauty.
| Original Score: 3/5
