Joke writing and makeup
I loved how the jokes flowed.
They just naturally dropped into the dialog at just the right
I know that's what good writers are "supposed" to do.
But they really did a fine job in this movie.
And this cast is expert at timing.
Steve's makeup was brilliant. The nose actually looked real even in
This movie made you feel like it was alive, instead of feeling like this
just a comedy movie.
You actually felt like there was a town somewhere in the world where this
could have happened.
I recommend this movie for everybody who needs a lift..

Steve Martin shines in one of his best performances...
ROXANNE was a 1987 comic reworking of the classic play CYRANO DE
BERGERAC, starring Steve Martin as CD Bales, the fire chief in a small
mountain town in Colorado called Nelson, who feels a lack of
self-esteem because of his big nose; however, is easily the most
intelligent citizen in the town and practically runs it though no one
seems to know. CD falls in love with Roxanne Kowalski (Daryl Hannah), a
beautiful astrology student who comes to Nelson for the summer, but
Roxanne falls for Chris McConnell (Rick Rossovich) a handsome and hunky
fireman who can't put two sentences together, but when CD coaches Chris
on how to woo Roxanne, she falls hard, not realizing that it's CD's
words, not Chris' that are making her swoon. This intelligent comedy is
not only hysterically funny but is genuinely warm with some wonderfully
romantic and tender moments. CD's speech to Roxanne as he hides in the
bushes pretending to be Chris is so beautifully written and performed
that it almost brings a tear to the eye. On the other hand, Martin is
rolling-on-the-floor funny in a bar scene where a bully makes fun of
his nose and he has to come up with 20 different insults centered on a
big nose. I've always been under the impression that this scene was
Martin's brainchild and probably wasn't in the original script but it
is the scene that everyone who sees this film remembers. But it's
Martin's little moments with Darryl Hannah's Roxanne, when he's
bursting inside to tell her how he feels but just can't, that make this
film so engaging. Steve Martin's performance in this film is just
remarkable and many, myself included, felt he should have received an
Oscar nomination for Best Actor. He did not, of course, because we all
know the Academy looks down on comedy performances. At the 1988 Oscar
ceremony, host Chevy Chase came onstage wearing a huge fake nose as a
jab at the Academy for not nominating Martin. Fred Schepisi's inspired
direction, lovely scenery and solid support from Rossovich, Shelley
Duval, Michael J. Pollard, and Fred Willard are icing on the cake.
Don't blink or you'll miss a brief appearance by a very young Damon
Wayons as a fireman who works for CD. One of the great film comedies of
the 80's...if you've never seen it, it is definitely worth the price of
