The movie held my attention, but I feel like the actors for those roles should have been 10-20 years older.
Makes me cry every time. A great love story.
One of the best chemistries between a beautiful woman and a very shy, awkward man of all time, the romance is palpable, and you feel every heart beat.
Marisa Tomei is so wonderful. So talented, so cute, so adorably HOT! Christian Slater has always been underrated. Thanks to Mr. Robot, not anymore.
A little sickly sweet with some unrealistic sentiment, but it's a sweet romance movie with a lot of heart (No pun intended).
Being from Minnesota I liked all of the Minnesota touches. The charisma of a young Marisa Tormei is the main appeal of this movie. I didn't buy into Christian Slater's character and he is mis-cast as the strong silent type.
I may be a dork (ok no maybe about it I am) but this is one of my "if you haven't seen it you must" movies!
Tomei's big eyes and Slaters baboons heart, along with Nat King Cole's song make this a memorable emotional drama.
Sweet story, well acted. Nothing out of this world, but I didn't feel bored or annoyed.
Christian Slater play a shy bus boy in a diner who secretly loves waitress Marisa Tomei. When Slater rescues her from an attempted rape, the two develop a relationship as Slater's mysterious past comes into focus. I remember when I originally watched this film back in my video store clerk days I found it overly dramatics, emotionally manipulative, and generally a rather contrived melodrama, but at the same time I really liked it. This film is absolutely an overwrought sappy melodrama, but it's a quite god one. Slater is very likable as if Tomei, coming hot off her unexpected Oscar win for "My Cousin Vinny." Cliff Eidelman provides a sensitive score and director of photography Jost Vacano (Das Boot, Total Recall, Robocop) gives the film a fairy tale feel, though I believe most of the film's success goes to director Tony Bill who brings a sincerity to the story and the characters and elevates this from the usual films of this ilk.
