Ripley's movie review

I'm not a big fan of romances but this one is funny and passionate and wonderful. I suspect it's partly the dialogue, the way it feels, and partly because I love Shakespeare's plays (the real Shakespeare's). Whatever the reason, this is one of the rare movies that I didn't wish I could fast forward through the love scenes. The whole thing is great from beginning to end.

I'd buy it.
