Wonderful Movie and screen play and music
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Andrew Bergman should have won an academy award for this screen play. For the first time in a long, long time i actually listened to a screenplay that says something important, real and is not just useless gibberish to fill in monologue. The music By David Shire and Orchestrations by Jack Hayes were both superb. This movie should have also won an Oscar for best musical score. If you listen to the score i mean really listen you will be listening to a classic score and a more then wonderful orchestrations. George Burns should have won an Oscar for this movie as well. His delivery of lines were impeccable. They made you believe the story even more. Roxanne Hart and Tedd Wass were wonderful together ...They both worked very well together.Tedd Wass was wonderful in his delivery of his lines as was Roxanne Hart. Roxannes expressions were delightful. She was a true delight and Ted Wass delivered his lines very well also. Good old Jane dulo was wonderful even though a small part and doolittle was great. he was i believe also in sophie's choice. King Baggot did a wonderful job of cinematography on this film. Excellent! What a refreshing breath of fresh air. A true treasure for the whole family. Also The wonderful Eugene Roche was terrific as Charlie Gray the talent manager. He played the part to a t and added so much realism to this smaller but very important part. He plays the part of the honest Joe who is just trying to make a living. Ron Silver was terrific as well. He brought realism to the A&R man at the record Company. Robert Desiderio Brought true life to the famous "Billy Wayne" who also sold his soul to the devil and wanted an extension on his contract and finds himself over dosing on booze and medicine. Ian giatti and brandy gold were also effective as child actors and actresses and added a certain tenderness to the part of a very ill child during the middle of the night. The acting,script,music and cinematography in this movie must not be underplayed. They are all integral to a great movie!
