Film: Roxanne

Not your average romantic comedy, this Setting Update of the play Cyrano de Bergerac tells the story of C.D. "Charlie" Bales (Steve Martin), the long-nosed fire chief of a small quirky town and Roxanne Kowalski (Daryl Hannah), a visiting astronomy student. Bales, in love with Roxanne from the start but violently self-conscious about his schnozz, settles for helping a handsome but ditzy fireman woo her. The results are predictable, if you know the story, but the humor surrounding the town and C.D.'s nose set the movie apart.
