CHARMING PERFORMANCES BY HAWN AND RUSSELL, AND HEARTFELT DIRECTION BY GARRY MARSHALL, MAKE THIS WONDERFUL ROMANTIC COMEDY PURE MAGIC.
Real-life couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn star on this enjoyable 1987 comedy by Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman) about an imperious heiress (Hawn) who loses her memory after a boating twist of fate and is identified because the wife of a handyman (Russell). Russell’s character brings her “home” to his messy area and unruly youngsters, and the laughs practice because the aristocratic Hawn tries fitting in. Marshall delivers the comic goods, the leads are entertaining (Russell must do more comedy), and the supporting forged is made from happily familiar faces, together with Roddy McDowall, Edward Herrmann, and Marshall favorite Hector Elizondo in an unbilled bit. –Tom Keogh
