Customer Review

on November 3, 2004
This film is so beautiful.
How many times in this film does Meg Ryan say 'I have no response to that'?
In Dune, Duke Leto says to shepherded Paul Atriedes 'the sleeper must awaken'. In 'Blue Velvet' Jeffrey says 'there are certain opportunities in life for gaining experience, and in order to do so certain risks must be taken'
This film is about the same thing - but is even more affecting because it is incredibly sensitive and funny. The trouble of life casts a terribly foreboding shadow across the film. Don't be put off by the low budget effects and the stereotyped duo of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. This is Meg Ryan's best ever performance, and she is so incredibly beautiful.
The script defines this film: it is purposeful and teasing. Perhaps this is the greatest film of all time.
