I've been searching for ages for a DVD copy of this film, which is one of our favourites. The story is haunting even though a comedy, and after watching it a couple of times you pick up on the recurring themes, shapes etc. The main characters are obviously great, but some of the minor ones are unforgettable, like the brilliant cab driver and the manager in the dreadful office "he can get the job, but can he do the job?". So glad to have found it again.

Simply put the best feel good film of all time. My favorite film. Better than the Entire Lord of the rings, and I believe even Casablanca. Like all films some people will hate it, others like it, and still others adore it. I am one of these last set of others.
Joe is plucked from a meanlingless life, into an adventure whose final chapter must mean the end of his life. He has one month to live like he has never lived. And he does.
Who else would ever have the excuse and need to purchase luggage like that!
I believe this film is really for a select group of people who want to live the key line "My father says almost the whole world's asleep. Everybody you know, everybody you see, everybody you talk to. He says only a few people are awake. And they live in a state of constant, total amazement."
Its for people who don't need any sort of drug to feel high. For people who just need an occasional reminder on what life's priorities really are.

It has been very difficult to get hold of this film in the UK. I saw it years ago on TV and enjoyed it so much I have been searching ever since to obtain a copy.
This film was not a big box office hit when it was released and the critics were less than complimentary. I think it is very underrated, probably because there are no special effects or overt sex and violence.
It is a simple storyline and has a happy ending. Works for me!

This so 'old' by modern standards but wacky and adorable and there are wonderful glimpses of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in their early career. She plays three parts in the film and is quite brilliantly different in each. Makes you realise what a great actress she is.

I think this is a very good film. I watched it when I was a lot younger and thought it was good then. I think it is just as good now, very funny good acting, silly storyline but it is supposed to be. If you want a good light hearted comedy then this is for you!

Most people will recognize their work place and co-workers here. The single flower trying to survive at the beginning is impressive. There is appropriate music and three Meg Ryan's (DeDe/Angelica Graynamore/Patricia Graynamore.) The cast lineup was perfect for each part. There is not a dull moment and everything is relative to the message.

My favorite Scene is where Joe purchases luggage. I would like to find that store.

Luggage Salesman: This is our premier steamer trunk, it's all-handmade, only the finest materials. It's even watertight, tight as a drum. If I had the need, and the wherewithal, Mr. Banks, this would be my trunk of choice.

Joe Banks: I'll take four of them.

Luggage Salesman: May you live to be a thousand years old, sir.

Right after that I would pick the moon on the ocean scene; here Joe is in the vast evening ocean and a huge moon is rising on the horizon.

So get out your orange soda sit on your trunks and watch.

I had this film years ago on vhs but sadly moved onto DVDs over time so I haven't seen it for a very long time. What a great movie. This film has loads of great bits but my favourite bit is the water scene when the massive moon starts rising and fills the night sky. Plus the bit at the end with the volcano. Won't spoil it but definitely something not to miss.

Simply the best and funniest film conceived and produced in recent years. I have always loved it and have now found the dvd to replace the old vhs I had. If you've not seen it, you are missing out big time.
