5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Elegant!, 22 Jan. 2016

This is an utterly elegant item. I went into town, to buy a letter opener as a gift for my mother, and found only one, it was overpriced and looked awful. Coming to my senses I went online and headed straight to Amazon. My mother, a very elegant woman with a ton of letters, adored it. Its chic, slim-line and does what its supposed to. I would highly recommend it, and so would my mother who no longer has to rip up an envelope to see what's inside.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only the Lonely man with no taste would like this., 20 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Only The Lonely [1991] [DVD] (DVD)
Maureen O'Hara and John Candy are wonderful, and in any other film they are really wonderful. They were friends who admired and respected each other in real life. This film however wasn't wonderful. Maureen plays a very mean bigoted woman who is an over controlling mother, and John plays a likable but somewhat corrupt cop who can get anything he wants and explains these amazing almost underhanded moments with the line, "Sometimes it's good to be a cop". It is sold as a love story and John Candy is a good leading man but the romance seems unbelievable and uninspiring. Sadly I think the script and bad jokes and unlikable characters and a plot that has no development or conflict worth caring about, all make this film fall flat. The best thing about this film is the fact that O'Hara and Candy starred in it. Without their talent this bad film would have been an awful film. Ally Sheedy is Candy's romantic leading lady who is often described as plain in the story. Her youth and beauty confuse this concept. At the beginning she has a nervous problem talking to people and on her first date with candy is odd and muted, this makes her instantly unlikable and worse is the fact that her social problem is all but forgotten by the next scene and she is a stylish social butterfly who can stand up for herself to the racist matriarch that is Maureen O'Hara's character. Sheedy is a wonderful actress but was miscast for Candy's romantic lead. She is too young and there are no sparks between them. In the wonderful film, Uncle Buck, Candy is romantically teamed with actress Amy Madigan and the chemistry is realistic and romance and wonderful. I truly believe Madigan would have been ideal in this role. She would have brought such charisma and charm to the romance, that was beyond Sheedy. I am sad to be so harsh, especially when discussing so many actors I admire and love in other roles, but this script was too awful for all the talented stars in the world to rescue. Its worth saying the cinematography of this film was beautiful. The visuals however couldn't save the lack of substance. Imagine looking at a beautiful piece of warm apple pie with a scoop of icecream on top of a pretty floral china plate, then taking a bite and tasting a sweaty smelly gym sock. This film looked beautiful but was sadly bland and at times rotten.
