  • The sweetest and most openhearted love fable since "The Princess Bride." show more

  • For the first time in years (even counting his excellent work in “Internal Affairs”), Richard Gere's acting gears aren't too obviously apparent; Julia Roberts, though the breadth of her emotional range remains in question, is beautiful and can act - a not-bad blueprint for continued employment. [23 Mar 1990, Life, p.4D]

  • The intelligence and wit of this glass-slipper heart-of-gold fantasy are shocking. show more
