4.0 out of 5 stars a showcase for the art of conversation 7 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
I will always remember this movie for the sheer amount of dialogue between Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino.They have long conversations that are quick-witted,aggressive,poignant,upsetting,loving,absurd,and just about any kind of verbal exchange people can have.And this is what makes Frankie And Johnnie such good entertainment - we've all had conversations like these and can relate to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pacino and Pfeiffer hit it really big 24 Jun 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
After their "romance" in 'Scarface' they (Pacino and Pfeiffer) decide to have a real romance, and it is a pretty good one. Not that the film is great but in this kind of films all I hope for is a little chemistry, some nice characters and a few laughs. This film has it all.

The chemistry between Al Pacino (Johnny) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Frankie) works because in the movie they have to fight for that chemistry. Al Pacino is a great actor but I think Michelle Pfeiffer was better here. Although I loved a couple of particular scenes with Pacino (his Greek-dance-scene is great) I think the character of Michelle Pfeiffer has more depth and she does exactly the right thing for that character. And of course she is a beautiful woman. You must love her.

The nice characters, besides Frankie and Johnny, are the gay neighbour (Nathan Lane), the boss of the restaurant where almost the whole cast is working (Hector Elizondo) and Nedda and Cora (Jane Morris and Kate Nelligan), two of the waitresses.

The story is simple. Johnny is just released from prison and he starts working in the restaurant where Frankie happens to be a waitress. He falls in love and although she has trouble to admit it she is doing the same thing. Of course there are some (a lot of) complications on the way but you know how it is going to end. A nice feel-good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars a modern love story. 12 Jun 2005
By doodle
Format:DVD
"Frankie and Johnny" doesn't have any allusions of grandeur, it is a simple movie about the lives of a group of New York deli workers; predominantly waitress Frankie (michelle Pfeiffer) and short-order cook Johnny (Al Pacino) both of whom turn in fine performances. This is a gentle, beautiful movie that reminds us that love doesn't have to be about fire-works and cheesy love songs, in fact love can grow anywhere.
Maybe correctly classed as a chick-flick but worth watching even just to see the wonderfully multi-faceted Pacino in action!

5.0 out of 5 stars frankie and johnny 1 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The greatest romantic film ever made!!,They always say love comes looking for you when you least expect it!.Set in New York,Frankie is a waitress, Johnny is the new short order cook,[and fresh out of jail after serving time for " signing someone name to somebody else's cheque"] and falls in love with Frankie,though she does not return his affections at first,he woes her.The film is a down to earth love story,two souls that are lost and find each other.Great soundtrack and cast, a film that says there is someone for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 28 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have owned this on VHS before I bought it on DVD and I just love it.
The story is very subtle and shows that people who make mistakes in life can move on if they let themselves. Michelle's character doesn't want to let herself be vulnerable but does realise, eventually, if she does want to move on then she will have to expose the real her to someone.
Al Pacino is brilliant as the ex-con with the heart - he can't even go off the rails properly when he gets out as he has too much of a conscience to do that.
The cast around them is also fab - mostly not big name actors but brilliantly cast as they are so believable you could expect to walk into a diner in NY and see them.
And the little touches around the main action (like the old dear at the till shoving some change on the floor to get the customer to bend down) are great and lift what could be a depressing story - albeit the guy does get the girl in the end.
Its a great story and one you can watch again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good movie... 4 Oct 2000
By Colbane
Format:VHS Tape
Most of teh criticism of this film is centered around the fact that Pfieffer and Pacino look too good for the characters they are suipposed to be portraying. A fair cop...it is true but that will annoy you for about 3 seconds before appreciation of the script and acting kicks in. I would have to say in hindisght that this film suffered from teh whole "only beautiful people get cast" debate that went on in Hollywood a few years ago. This should have been an ideal opportunity to disprove it given that the two leads were supposed to be somewhat "plain." BUT WHO CARES? Forget the criticism and form your own opinion and at ... it is a snip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Potato rose 23 April 2009
Format:DVD
I've been searching to have this DVD for years, and finally I could get my hands on it. It is an honest romantic drama of two people who have their own problematic past of broken hearts and souls. It really makes you think through how could one live with such a package from the past and still believe that they have the right to fall in love and be loved at the same time. And all this portrayed by great actors! I really recommend watching it!
