This is one of my favourite movies of the year. I thought it was both poignant and understated. Perhaps the best thing about it is the superb acting by Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman. They are both believable in their roles as a lonely spinster and "has-been" forgettable dad, respectively. It was nice to see a script written for people that are real - they're not as young as they used to be, and they have wrinkles!!! I love it!!! You can read what's happening just by watching their faces! Eileen Atkins is also enjoyable as Thompson's mother who has way too much time on her hands to think of ways to get her daughter out of her "situation" (read: being single). There are awkward moments galore - and I found myself cringing; having either experienced or seen someone else go through similar moments. If you are looking for a hilariously raunchy comedy, this isn't it. If you want an understated, unexpected, sweet, love story, this may be right up your alley.

I like Emma Thompson's films and chose this movie because of her. However, I was moved by the realism of this film to a degree that I did not expect. Watching Thompson and Hoffman was like seeing real people in moments of embarrassment and pain. If that doesn't sound like entertainment, it isn't, exactly. It is, however, enlightening, especially if you've ever been in a similar situation. The film also touched me because it exposed human frailties, such as Hoffman's character displays, with humor and understanding rather than with judgment. As the film progresses, we learn to like and understand the characters, and the "happy ending" seems genuine, not contrived.

This is clearly not a film for people who expect a great deal of action, and the humor is subtle. Instead, "Last Chance Harvey" is a movie for those who enjoy watching characters slowly unfold and come to life.

Boy meets girl. Boy woos girl. Girl and boy have misunderstanding, but iron it out.

Well, imagine that scenario for the fiftysomething set. "Last Chance Harvey" is one of those thoroughly mediocre little movies that only manages to make itself memorable because it happens to star great actors. Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson manage to turn this middle-of-the-road romantic comedy into something worth watching on a lazy summer afternoon, as long as you don't expect much plot.

The titular character (Hoffman, natch) is a down-on-his-luck musician/jingle-writer who visits England for his daughter's wedding, but fate seems determined to make him miserable -- women ignore him, his daughter has dropped him in favor of her stepfather, and he's humiliated at the rehearsal dinner. The only person who hasn't caused poor Harvey to drop further is pretty Kate Walker (Thompson), an interviewer whom Harvey brushes off at the airport.

Unsurprisingly, when they actually spend some time together, Kate and Harvey begin to click and Harvey starts openly pursuing this new woman who actually treats him like a human being. His self-confidence and charm begin to grow as Kate begins to reciprocate his feelings -- but when they hit a sudden snag in their first date, Harvey may have lost his last chance.

"Last Chance Harvey" is one of those plots that has been around for eons, especially in movies: lonely single people reluctantly find love with each other, despite a few "Love Affair" obstacles and misunderstandings, and turn their miserable pathetic lives around. It's neither a really good movie nor a bad one -- just sort of average, especially since the climactic obstacle turns out to be a really contrived, rather overwrought misunderstanding. Bleah.

This is a lovely bittersweet love story which lives in a wonderful reality. Two people with some baggage meet up & begin quite a realistic relationship...sensitive & so very real. It's a keeper.
