"Relationships don't always fit like a glove.
"A film adaptation of Steve Martin's novel about a complex love triangle between a bored salesgirl, a wealthy businessman and an aimless young man.
This is no time to stop believing in love!
Just saw it... Wow! What an EXCELLENT movie! Several appropriate quotes
come to mind: There's hope for love, yet! I may be a GUY and all that,
but it was definitely handkerchief time a few times during this movie!
I'd like to get the ONLY negative observation out of the way at the
start, I feel Steve Martin could have skipped some of the voice overs,
or STOPPED earlier, giving us SOME credit for appreciating the
situation, without having to spoon feed it to us in case we missed it.
If that had been skipped it would have been PERFECT. - I realize,
though, in today's numbed (read that as "dumb") society some of the
people may not get the whole story, so I guess the thinking people must
make allowances for him trying to put his point across to them, but
there you go.
This is a great LOVE date movie. You can even expect to get married
soon after you see it with a partner! Also expect it raising questions
in your relationship. Where you're going with it, will it be going
In case you haven't seen it, here's a quick plot synopsis: It's
somewhat romantic a story of a girl working at a rather expensive
department store who dates two guys who are very different. First the
young, uncouth, immature and impulsive guy. Then a rich, suave, intense
and sophisticated guy (Steve Martin). Basically it's a moral tale that
puts her in various situations which puts the audience sympathy on her
side. It is unfair, the way she is treated, and if it inspires someone
to be more less like the characters, more truthful and honest, it will
have served it's purpose, and entertained you at the same time.
That's what makes it so great.
It's one of these movies where you leave feeling you're a better person
than when you came into the cinema.
