5.0 out of 5 stars Chick-Flick Extraordinaire, 26 May 2003

This review is from: Message In A Bottle [VHS] [1999] (VHS Tape)
Kevin Costner and Robin Wright-Penn star in this romantic, sentimental, and heart-tugging drama about love lost and found. Teresa, played by Penn, is a newspaper writer who finds a love letter in a bottle, and is so taken with its honesty that she finds the author, in the hope of writing a column about him. It is, of course, Costner, who plays Garret, a sailboat builder, who wrote the letter to his late wife. He and Teresa fall in love, against a backdrop of the beautiful Outer Banks, until Garret discovers her original motive, and feels betrayed.
Wright-Penn is lovely and holds her own with Costner, who does so well in this type of role - brooding, hurt, and ready to love again. Paul Newman, as Garret's curmudgeon father, almost steals the show. His loveable and wise old coot balances the sweetness of the love story, to make the film a very satisfying and memorable one. Guys take note: This one is for the ladies. There are no car chases or explosions, but it would make a very good date movie. I highly recommend this film especially to Kevin Costner's fans, who enjoy him in romantic and tender roles.
