I have not seen every Steve Martin movie. I have seen many, and I would have to say this is his best performance. He is simply delightful as C.D. He is smart, insecure, lovable, kind, and sympathetic. He delivers this role nearly perfectly. The writing is great. It is very smart and sophisticated. "I thought you said, Earn more sessions by sleething." Martin expertly combines silly slapstick with heartfelt poetry. He did have good source material, but he put enough in it to make it modern, and make it his own. He doesn't manipulate us. The script is filled with sincere emotion. The supporting actors are very good. This is a great ensemble piece. Michael Pollard is great as Andy. I like the scene where we see him wearing boxing gloves standing over the unconscious black guy (Daymon Wayans?). Slapstick can be subtle, and Martin pulls it off marvelously.

Martin's bestReviewed byjdoan-4Vote: 8/10
A Cyrano remake, this charming film shows the ability of Martin to be something more than the Jerk. Great dialog, good acting (Hannah was weak, but I am being picky here), and beautiful scenary. The "sword fighting" scene in the beginning of the movie and the 20 nse insults are classic and will used in the film. An absolute don't miss romantic comedy.
Steve Martin's genius as a comic actor has never been in doubt. But once in a while even a genius does something astounding. For Martin it is "Roxanne". Possibly THE funniest movie that I have ever seen, not to mention passionately romantic, it also does something that so few movies are able to do today... it stays intelligent despite the humor. In today's Hollywood so many comedies fall into the trap of deplorable slapstick and gratuitous cussing, "Roxanne" succeeds in entertaining us through colorful characters, enchanting surprises, and witty intelligent dialogue. Where have movies like this gone to? Where were they to begin with? A rare jewel in the sands of Hollywood, see this movie like your life depends on it (tip to the wise: take a date). Pay special attention to the character of Andy, he is a special treat throughout the film. Also look for a VERY young Damon Wayans. The treats abound.
