Storyline

In his Scottish New Town home, gangling Gregory and his school-friends are starting to find out about girls. He fancies Dorothy, not least because she has got into the football team - and is a better player than him. He finally asks her out, but it is obviously the females in control of matters here, and that very much includes Gregory's younger sister. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

While in the USA in 1982 to promote the film, Bill Forsyth attended the Academy Award Ceremony at the invitation of his friend David Puttnam. At the after party to celebrate Puttnams win with Chariots of Fire (1981), Forsyth was speaking with the producer of the show. He said the part he most enjoyed was the staging on the performance of For Your Eyes Only with Sheena Easton. Forsyth was stunned to learn that the staging of the 4 minute performance cost more than his entire production and publicity budget on Gregory's Girl. See more »

Really Sweet
5 February 2004 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

I've caught this movie a few times playing on Stars in the states, and there is something indescribably charming about it. Maybe I'm biased because I've always loved British movies and television shows, but I found this movie very cute. The story is nothing big and dramatic, just a boy liking a girl and learning a bit about himself and about love in general in the end. The lead character of Gregory is very convincing and very real, you like him but at the same time you can't help wincing a bit at his awkwardness, especially in the scene where he's helping Dorothy out in football by playing goalie. I find this movie very refreshing when compared to teen comedies that are being made nowadays. Gregory's Girl has a realness and innocence to it that is severely lacking in Hollywood now.

And also thanks to whoever posted that the US version had the Scottish accents dubbed. I always noticed there was something "off" about the voices, especially the younger kids and now I see why. I hope someday I can see a copy with the original voices intact.
