4.0 out of 5 stars WINONA RYDER IS MY FAVORITE MOVIE STAR July 24 2002
Format:VHS Tape
BACK IN THE EARLY 90's I WATCHED THIS MOVIE NUMEROUS TIMES. THERE IS A BIT OF RYDER'S CHARACTER (DINKY BOSSETTI) IN ALL OF US. I REALLY ENJOYED WINONA IN HER TEEN ROLES AND I ENJOY HER WORK NOW. ADOPTED AS AN INFANT DINKY BOSSETTI HAS LITTLE TO NOTHING IN COMMON WITH HER ADOPTIVE PARENTS. "WE JUST DON'T FIT." DINKY SAYS. SHE SECRETLY AWAITS THE HOMECOMING OF ROXY CARMICHAEL, WHO IS A LEGEND IN DINKY'S HOME TOWN OF CLYDE OHIO. SHE ALSO BELIEVES THAT ROXY CARMICHAEL IS HER REAL MOTHER AND THAT DENTON (JEFF DANIELS) IS HER REAL FATHER. WHILE BLEEDING INFORMATION OUT OF DENTON IT ALL SEEMS TO MAKE SENSE TO HER 15 YEAR OLD MIND. ONLY BECAUSE THATS WHAT SHE HOPES. "WELCOME HOME ROXY CARMICHAEL" HAS THIS MESSAGE.. DON'T BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK THE GRASS MAY BE GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE. WINONA RYDER BY THE WAY IS STELLAR IN THE LEAD ROLE. YOUR HEART IS IN HER HAND THE WHOLE TIME. WHEN I FIRST HEARD OF THIS MOVIE I THOUGHT THAT WINONA WAS ROXY CARMICHAEL AND SHE WOULD BE WELCOMED HOME BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. THE MOVIE TURNED OUT TO BE A VERY MEANINGFUL MOVIE TO ME. I'M SORRY MORE PEOPLE HAVEN'T SEEN IT. I GUESS IF A TEEN MOVIE DOESN'T HAVE JOHN HUGHES NAME IN THE CREDITS IT GETS IGNORED. RYDER'S CHARACTER FINDS OUT THAT SHE'S ALOT MORE THAN JUST PRETTY IN PINK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky but delightful. May 29 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is such a Winona Ryder movie. (I mean that in the best way possible; she really shines in this movie.) She plays teenaged, quirky, confused, unpopular Dinky Bosetti living in small town Ohio. She was adopted as a baby by a couple who she cannot relate to (especially the "mother", played by Frances Fisher) and who cannot relate to her, and she displays her frustration and confusion by wearing black and padlocking her bedroom door. The only allies Dinky feels she has are a group of homeless dogs she cares for at an old abandoned boat. Roxy Carmichael, the town's living legend, is a woman whose sexual prowess is so strong that it's not limited to either gender. Jeff Daniels does well playing Denton Webb, who was a lover of Roxy's in their younger days. Dinky interrogates Denton relentlessly about Roxy and begins to convince herself that Roxy and Denton are her biological parents. She eagerly anticipates Roxy's scheduled return (as does Denton, who is by now married with children) so that she can go away with her and finally have a mother who understands her. Dinky becomes so obsessed with Roxy's return that she becomes blind to the love that's all around her, from a school counselor, from a popular classmate, and from her adoptive father. I don't want to give away the whole movie. It's a worthwhile rental. PS You never get to find out who Roxy Carmichael is, which was mildly frustrating, but don't let that stop you.

4.0 out of 5 stars sweetly-engaging comedy May 3 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Winona Ryder stars as a lovable misfit in the 1990 sleeper WELCOME HOME ROXY CARMICHAEL, a sweetly engaging comedy about small towns and small people.
Dinky Bossetti (Winona Ryder) is the town of Clyde's misfit. The rest of the cheerful 1950's-esque residents cannot fathom her problem; she wears black, rides a rusty bike and hides in an abandoned boat wreck in the creek, where she keeps a menajerie of pets.
Her blowzy adoptive mother (Frances Fisher) tries to force her into submission but Dinky has other ideas for her life. When the town's local girl - turned celebrity, Roxie Carmichael, is going to return to the town, Dinky becomes convinced that she is her real mother.
Denton Webb (Jeff Daniels) is Roxie's childhood love, and the only one who knows the answer to Dinky's question......
With Dinah Manoff and Laila Robins, WELCOME HOME ROXY CARMICHAEL is a fine commentary on life in a small town. Ryder gives one of her best performances. '

3.0 out of 5 stars A Winona Ryder Teen Movie March 21 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is the typical teen movie, but with the psychological twist most Winona Ryder movies have. By psychological, i mean there are times when the characters have traumas in their lives-normal people problems. This character-Dinky-has self esteem problems, and so do her parents(not with self esteem). Everyone in this movie has a problem and that's what I like. This movie mixes real life with a Cinderella twist (teen outsider gets popular cute guy). I reccomend this to any teen girl and maybe her boyfriend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Winona Ryder, what more can I say:) March 23 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Dinky Basetti(Winona Ryder) is having a hard time fitting into her surroundings in this movie. But the one thing that keeps her going is the homecoming of the infamous Roxy Charmichal, who Dinky secrectly hopes and thinks she is the daughter of. This is a movie about having to deal with all of the problems of growing up and just being a teenager(we all know how hard that is) and hoping that there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Sept. 8 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really liked it when the cute, popular boy fell for her even though she didn't look like everybody else. He liked her because of who she was on the inside and not because of how she looked and dressed on the outside. This film is a good motivator for those who don't believe that the one they like could ever like them. Dinky liked him and he liked her and so everybody lived happily ever after. How picturesque is that!?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not bad! May 14 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Well, I got this video off eBay, not knowing what to expect. This "acceptable" movie is completely carried by Winona Ryder, with a surprisingly unsatisfying Jeff Daniels as backup. The story is OK, and the ending is touching, if a bit predictable. Winona is GREAT in this, and really does a great job, bringing a sense of wonder and a completely truthful teenage portrayal into this otherwise drowning movie.
