Martin is very funny in the role, and most ingenious about finding modern equivalents for the various bits of business in the original play. Yet the nagging question remains: Why?

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.

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

It's a neat trick, being Steve Martin. He's so good; his movies will get even better.

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.

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.

Very good adaptation of Cyrano with Steve Martin in one his best roles.

Far and away [Martin's] richest film to date, lyrical, sweet-natured, touching, and very, very funny.
