Product Description

Product Description

Waitress Caroline (Marisa Tomei) is superficially confident and outgoing, but deep down inside feels insecure about relationships and has had a string of failed romances. One night whilst walking home her reclusive busboy colleague Adam (Christian Slater), who is secretly smitten with her, saves her from being attacked. Caroline is secretly intrigued by her shy saviour and tries to break into his solitary world - which is difficult at first but eventually blossoms into romance.

when i watched this film i expected a complete rom-com cliche however this film had me on a emmotional rollercoaster from happy to sad. although the ending had me near hysterical i could watch it again and again. superbly acted and directed this film should be mandatory for emmotional education. if this doesnt make you cry then you need studied!

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 Mar. 2003
Format: VHS Tape
This film is an unlikely romance that works on many levels. Deftly directed by Tony Bill who shows a penchant for handling delicate sentiments as if they were gossamer threads, this film is truly one of the most truly romantic that I have seen. That this is so, despite that many of the most romantic moments take place in a downtown Minneapolis diner, a dingy basement apartment, the front porch of a house in a blue collar, working class neighborhood, or in an old dilapidated clunker of a car, is a testament to the ability of the director.
Marisa Tomei is luminous as Caroline, the Minneapolis waitress with self-esteem problems who looks for love in all the wrong places, before finding it right where she works. She imbues Caroline with just the right measure of street smarts, working class edge, and little girl vulnerability. She is a needy, though nice, young woman who desperately wants to love and be loved. Unfortunately, the guys she meets tend to treat her as a one night stand. The sensitive and romantic Adam, the reticent and quirky busboy who works the midnight shift with Caroline, is just what the doctor ordered.
Christian Slater gives his best performance ever as Adam who becomes Caroline's veritable knight in shining armor. An orphan with a disability that he cloaks with an intriguing story, Adam is a true romantic hero. His quiet sincerity, delicate sensibilities, and apparent contentment in worshipping from afar touch Caroline, tugging at her heart strings. You see, he treats her as if she were a princess rather than as a strumpet. Christian Slater's sensitive and moving performance in a difficult role strikes just the right note. I would bet that nearly every woman who watches this film succumbs to his charms and finds herself half falling in love with him.

I first watched this film back in 1998 on TV and recently tracked it down on DVD and bought a copy.

It is a beautiful story of a tentative romance between an unlikely couple with Caroline, the unlucky in love waitress, and Adam, the kitchen hand, who is a shy, withdrawn individual who admires Caroline from afar.

I guess the reason the film appeals to me is because you can relate to the characters, their ordinary lives and the positive message regarding relationships and love. The pacing of the film is perfect, its small town setting is convincing and the supporting cast if a little sparse, also make their contribution.

A great film.

This film, is the best I've ever seen in ages! Considering I have a very short memory, I remember this film throughout. Do you know when you watch a film which is sad, at the end a lump begins to emerge in your throat, then you are choked. You think that if you cry, the lump will vanish, but it makes you even more emotional. That's exactly how it made me feel. I thought the ending was a bit unpredictable, but I knew that something along the lines of that was going to take place. This is the best film since I saw 2 particularly excellent movies: "The Champ", and "Imitation of Life".
Excellent picture

I watched this film years ago and enjoyed it and recently bought the DVD for a second look. Enjoyed it also the second time around but I believe that it could have been even better. It is an important part of the plot that the main character believes the story of his baboon's heart as related to him whilst living as a child in the orphanage but, unless it is my ears, it is hard to hear what is being said at the time and you have to piece it together later in the film. The movie takes place predominantly in a diner and this gave the opportunity to expand on the characters that frequented the place. This does not really happen (with the exception of course of the characters played by Marisa Tomei and Rosie Perez) and even though they all attend Adam's funeral they are not really involved in the film which is a shame. All this being said it is a fine movie if you are looking for a gentle storyline with a heart wrenching (but predictable)ending. Marisa Tomei is gorgeous, sexy and eminantly watchable whilst Christian Slater is sufficiently vulnerable and endearing. The hair cutting scene is a great example of how to create an erotic atmosphere without having to resort to excessive nudity or explicit sexual content. Or perhaps that's just down to Marisa Tomei!

Well reading the other reviews posted here, I must have either missed something when watching this film, or simply watched it in the wrong mood.
The plot centres round the small town love story between coffee shop waitress, Caroline, played by Marisa Tomei and kitchen hand Adam played by Christian Slater. Slater is an orphan who also has a weak heart and Tomei, a optimistic romantic is always on the look out for real love, and it's not surprising that eventually the two fianally manage to begin a relationship, but after that there is really nothing else in the whole film.
Now before people start leaping up and accusing me of being just another bloke who doesn't understand romance movies I must say in my defence that some of my favourite films are romances, and I'm a stickler for small-town films that centre on a small number of characters. But I'm sorry; this long drawn out effort between these two just didn't push the right buttons for me.
The two main leads play their parts adequately well. Tomei plays her love seeking and slightly idealistic role with great grace and charm and her beauty and great range of facial expressions do work most of the time. The scene when she discovers the Xmas tree in her room is delightful and even an old cynic like me is drawn in. Slater on the other hand doesn't really have that much to do with the almost silent and somewhat retarded Adam. To be honest he came over just a little bit creepy to me and girls can you honestly say you would be thrilled to find out that this man had been sneaking into your bedroom to watch you sleep, even if it was Christian Slater.
