Dixie! Hi, how you doing, girl? Yeah, I'm on my way. I'll be there in about five minutes. I'm bringing it! I've only had it a year and a half, I told you I'd return it. OK. So long. Talk to you later. All right. All right. Bye.

This is the sweetest intelligent romantic comedy ever made. It is a
brilliant reworking of the classic play on which it is based. Steve Martin
has demonstrated in movie after movie his ability to make people laugh, and
with Roxanne he has shown his ability to create comedy, in addition to
spouting the creation of others. There is no downside to this movie. By
far the greatest romantic comedy of the last 25 years. Potentially the
greatest romantic comedy ever made.
