A small town fire cheif with an astonishingly long nose falls in love with a gorgeous astronomy student.

"Martin gives his most sensitive and believable performance.  VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever

"Steve Martin is one funny white gentile.  Desson Howe, Washington Post
"Extremely likable and sweet-natured romantic comedy.  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
Roxanne (Darryl Hannah) is a beautiful astronomer in search of a comet, and Chris is a hunky but inarticulate fire expert who has been hired to train C.D.'s team of well-meaning firemen. C.D. immediately falls in love with Roxanne but he is sure that she won't notice anything about him except his extremely prominent facial feature and is quick to hide his passionate desires. However, Roxanne has captured the fancy of another, Chris. When C.D. learns of Chris's crush, he uses his gift for poetry to help the inexperienced courtier capture her affections. Wooed by the beauty of the words, Roxanne falls for Chris, not realizing that C.D. was the one really doing the talking. Of course, when put to the test, Chris does not live up to Roxanne's expectations and she quickly learns the identity of her real poetic suitor. Steve Martin is at his agile and uproarious best in this superior version of a classic story that revels in the oddity of life and the power of true love.

Expert Review Roxanne - DVD Review
By: Jason McKiernan filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 4/29/2009 5:36 PM
At the beginning of Roxanne, C.D. Bales (Steve Martin), sporting a black baseball cap, white Oxford shirt, and a nose as big as Pinocchio's, walks down the street in a confident strut -- for whatever reason, carrying a tennis racket. He is approached by two slack-jawed losers who spew "big nose" insults. Rather than slump down and walk on by, C.D. springs into action, engaging in an extended, acrobatic sword fight involving his tennis racket and the other men's ski poles. C.D. wins handily. He is very nearly the most skilled, able-bodied, complete man -- if it weren't for that huge nose....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...Martin makes the familiar story feel fresh....Whimsy [and] pathos..." -- Rating: B 01/21/2000 pp.108-9

New York Times
"...Martin gives a sweet and serious performance....A thoroughly pleasant, down-to-earth romantic comedy..." 06/19/1987 p.C3

Variety
"...[The film creates] a small-town wonderland suitable for a fairy tale like ROXANNE..." 06/10/1987

Los Angeles Times
"...What gives ROXANNE its zing is both Martin's loose-limbed, authoritative physicality and his un-show-offy mental dexterity are combined so sweetly and successfully....ROXANNE shows us its infinite rewards..." 06/28/1987 p.C30

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
...What makes Roxanne so wonderful is not (its) fairly straightforward comedy...but the way the movie creates a certain ineffable spirit. Martin plays a man with a smile on his face and a broken heart inside--a man who laughs that he may not cry... Hannah provides a sweet, gentle foil... - Roger Ebert
