Nothing like the book,
This review is from: Under The Tuscan Sun [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Don't bother to see this film if you appreciated the book on which it is based. It has taken a story about a love affair with a house in Tuscany and turned it into a fairly average romance involving an American woman and a good looking Italian. Ed (who is the "hero" of the book) is relegated to a brief appearance at the end and half of the story is transported to the Amalfi coast, which is nowhere near Tuscany.
However, the scenery is beautiful, so if all you want is an undemanding film for a Saturday night you could do worse than to snuggle up and dream with this one.
