Romantic comedy starring Steve Martin as a fire chief with a disfigured nose who falls madly in love with Daryl Hannah. It's a cute romantic comedy that entertains despite its conventional storyline and direction.
Alarm bells were ringing as soon as we got into its over the top, slapstick, goofy sound-effect laden intro. The film has flashes, very quick blink and you will miss it flashes, of classic Steve Martin hilarity, but it has aged terribly and on more than few occasions, the 'jokes' were just completely baffling.
Possibly not as strong as other recent Steve Martin performances, this rom-com is another reason why Martin was considered one of the greatest comedic actors in the 1980s. Very entertaining again. Verdict: B-
