Synopsis 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.It must be wonderful to wake up in the morning and smell the coffee -- in Brazil. -- C.D. Bales (STEVE MARTIN) I'd hate to see the grindstone. -- C.D. Bales (STEVE MARTIN) Why should we sip from a teacup when we can drink from a river? -- C.D. Bales (STEVE MARTIN) What's a light year? Same as a regular year only it has less calories. -- Andy (MICHAEL J. POLLARD)...Martin makes the familiar story feel fresh....Whimsy [and] pathos... -- Rating: B+...Martin gives a sweet and serious performance....A thoroughly pleasant, down-to-earth romantic comedy......[The film creates] a small-town wonderland suitable for a fairy tale like ROXANNE......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...

Sounds/Subtitles Comic genius Steve Martin delivers an incredible performance as an engaging small town fire chief who has only one tiny flaw - no, make that one HUGE flaw - his astonishingly long nose. Although he considers it no laughing matter, the hilarity never stops as C.D. Bales (Martin) contends with jerky nose jokes, a bumbling crew of firemen, and his secret love for gorgeous astronomy student Roxanne (Daryl Hannah). Unfortunately, she is attracted to fireman Chris (Rick Rossovich), who's tall on looks and short on conversation. And when C.D. agrees to coach the dumbstruck Chris in his pursuit of the fair maiden, this ticklish triangle dissolves into a hilarious series of rib-tickling romantic misadventures. A contemporary love story of mistaken identity and unrequited love, ROXANNE is an unforgettable comedy that Siskel & Ebert call a comic masterpiece.
