Product Description

Amazon.ca

You can hear the big gears clank in this glossy, oh-so-watchable remake of the classic 1939 film (and the popular An Affair to Remember). Instead of updating the story with contemporary attitudes (as Warren Beatty did so successfully with Heaven Can Wait), this is a virtual carbon copy of the other films. The early scenes succeed as the two love birds (Beatty and real-life wife Annette Bening) banter with smart, fun talk. But the dramatics never really work in the modern era and romance doesn't blossom. Do we have to visit the Empire State Building again? Why couldn't the man be the victim? Everything looks wrapped for Christmas: a lovely score, nice use of old songs, rich designer clothes, familiar faces popping up everywhere, all surrounded by ace Conrad L. Hall's glowing, luscious light. It comes off like a big still-life, no zeal with two big exceptions: Garry Shandling's comic portrayal of lawyerhood as Beatty's agent and the reappearance of Katharine Hepburn. Seen for maybe 10 minutes, she packs more magic in her work than the entire rest of the movie. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars From a guy's point of view... June 29 2003
By M. Day
Format:DVD
Okay, I'm not into chick flicks, but I like romantic movies. This movie is amazing because it avoids the pitfalls that alot of romantic movies fall into by not mixing an essential amount of testosterone necessary to keep a guy feeling like he's part of the scenario. (I absolutely abhored Best Friend's Wedding.) Movies that are of the same genre as this: An Affair to Remember? A classic, but by the time I was old enough to appreciate romance movies, I was intolerant of Cary Grant's accent. Sleepless in Seattle had it's moments. BUT, Love Affair nails it! It's funny, clever, romantic... Annette Benning commands the screen. Warren Beatty--I mean, does this movie strike an exact chord, or what? The chemistry is perfect because, aside from the tragedy it entails, it IS a true story! WB is depicted as a famous womanizing stud (which anybody who's been around for a few years is well aware that he actually was). One day traveling on a plane he meets the woman that's his soulmate. The way she 'operates' him is poetry in motion. Bottom line: The cast, the soundtrack, the storyline, the locations, Ray Charles in concert doing a Christmas song, the cruise ship, the walk on an island in Tahiti, the humor, etc. I could go on & on about how much I love this movie. I recorded this on cable several years ago and can't tell you how many times I've watched it. (Now it's on DVD...Y-E-A-H!!!) Ladies, are you having a hard time of getting your man to watch a romantic movie? Well this is your ticket! Take it from a guy, this movie absolutely rules! Just make sure you get some tissues for him too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie Ever!! March 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Okay, I've officially adopted myself as the spokesperson for "Love Affair!" I've spent the past few days telling everyone I know to watch it!
My mom actually recommended it to me (telling me it was even better than "Jerry Maguire", my previous favorite movie), so I rented it on a whim.....the best decision I've ever made!
Now, at first, I was watching it just like a regular romantic comedy, but as it progressed,I realized that the scenes were really ABOUT the emotion. The way that Annette gazes out at the Empire State Building from her balcony....The way that Warren ignores everyone but her on the Russian cruise ship....The way they look at each other in the theater near the end of the movie....
Oh, and I felt the emotion! I was in tears through the scene where they are reunited (Annette's "I was looking up" line!), oh, and the scene when Warren is waiting for her with the painting! I cried my eyes out over this movie!
I've never seen the original 2 movies, but now I have mixed feelings about if I want to - I couldn't bear to tarnish the magic of this one!
It really is a "poetic" movie....beautiful, tender, emotional....everything a hopeless romantic (like me!) could possibly hope for!
Everyone looking for an excellent touching movie, buy LOVE AFFAIR today!!!!

Format:VHS Tape
"Love Affair" is a remake of an "Affair to Remember" which was made popular because it was rather important in the plot of "Sleepless in Seattle." Just to make it more interesting, "Affair to Remember" was a remake of the original "Love Affair." Warren Beatty plays Mike Gambril, an ex-football star (an obvious allusion to Beatty's "Heaven Can Wait," which was a much more successful remake of an older film) who meets Terry McKay, played by Annette Benning, on a flight to Sydney. The plane is forced down and the two end up on a slow boat back to civilization. Both are engaged to other people, but since these two are married in real life and since very few people will have seen "Love Affair" without having seen or heard about the earlier versions, it is pretty clear this is not going to work out. But they want to take time to be sure, and so an ill-fated rendezvous at the Empire State Building is set up to confirm their destinies.
Katharine Hepburn's performance as Michael's Aunt Ginny is touted on the box cover, not just because "Love Affair" proved to be the final theatrical film in her storied career (she did appear in one more made for television movie), but because she steals the show in her brief scene. Hepburn is abetted in this effort by the local, a glorious beautiful South Pacific island as lush and as a green as any you have ever seen. There is also a wonderful set up for her scene, where Beatty asks Benning to go see his aunt and the couple take a series of scenic jaunts to the mountainside home, punctuated by Benning's comic asides.

1.0 out of 5 stars Money isn't everything April 8 2002
Format:DVD
Gee, if Mike and Terry could learn this, why couldn't Warren and Annette?
It doesn't matter how much money was thrown into this movie, it just doesn't work.
Look, before you get all defensive, I love a good chick flick and 'An Affair to Remember' is the all-time champion in my book. Grant and Kerr had the panache to carry it off. Too, this was a product of its time - two people wake up long enough to realize they love each other and they've been far too dependent on others. The characters of suave international playboy and chanteuse with a questionable past and a heart of gold don't play now.
Huge sections of dialogue were brought over from 'An Affair' to this film and they don't play either.
There are some unintentionally funny moments - watch Annette Benning's hand make spidery shadows on her face as she's gesturing during one ship-board conversation...

I have not seen the Cary Grant version so I had little to compare this predictable chickflick with. In fact the first 40 minutes or so can pretty much be skipped. Read more

A ridiculous would-be romance that manages the truly remarkable feat of being completely sterile, cold, and non-human. Read more
