Young businesswoman Elyse Samford's life takes a turn when she inherits Samford Candy, a multi-billion dollar corporation, from her retired father. A trademark infringement lawsuit against a rival company brings Elyse to Higgins Attorneys and Sons, where Rob Carelli, a young, too-nice-for-his-own-good lawyer, is bullied by his boss, firm founder Carter Higgins, and his two arrogant sons. Despite his workplace woes, Rob becomes instantly smitten with Elyse. With Halloween just around the corner, Elyse invites the Higgins law firm staff to an opulent masked Halloween costume ball. Rob obeys an order to remain in the office working that night, but has a change of heart when his spunky, 12-year old niece Ruby, convinces him to attend the ball wearing a prince costume. After a magnificent waltz and magical exchange with the handsome "prince," Elyse yearns to locate this mysterious man and hopefully find the romance her life has been missing.

Mark W (it) wrote: It seems like a well made film; but unfortunately it bored me to tears! Do you remember the beginning 5 minutes of "The Exorcist" that everyone forgot about when the main film started... Well this entire film has that whole vibe to it! While prior Exorcists focussed on scares and horror, this seemed to focus way to heavily on the biblical side of things, and well, it's two hours of boring drivel.

Eric H (es) wrote: An authentic and riveting movie that certainly will strike a lot of familiar chords, given all that is happening in the Middle East. Though the filmmaker probably sympathized with the Algerians, this movie does not present a particularly sympathetic portrayal of the FLN and Arab side. Indeed, in some respects it is an indictment of terrorism and it most certainly does not glorify the use of violence. The main players on the Arab side are shown to be callous if not murderous, and the French commander, while ruthless, is by no means a stick figure. A most informative and realistic movie, surprisingly objective--and I speak as a person who, believe me, was not rooting for the Algerians even once!
Christopher S (ru) wrote: Enjoyable 60s Italian comedy built around the star presence of Sophia Loren and Marcello Matroianni, both in top form as usual. It's often more mildly amusing than really funny, with the first segment going a bit too far over the top, though the second and third are nice subtle satires. Not quite memorable enough to be a classic, but an entertaining couple of hours with two great stars.
Scott W (ca) wrote: Enjoyable retelling of the action against the German Pocket Battleship Admiral Graf Spee in Dec 1939. Powell and Pressburger do a great job of detailing believable characters and naval procedures and the battle itself is pretty exciting. Peter Finch is excellent as the noble Langsdorff and Anthony Quayle has a stiff upper lip as Commodore Harwood. They are ably supported by familiar British character actors like Anthony Bushell, Patrick Macnee, Bernard Lee, John Le Mesurier as HMS Exeter's padre and Christopher Lee, who appears as a swarthy Uruguayan bar owner and speaks only a few lines in Spanish!

House M (es) wrote: This is a very interesting movie, a true love story, like normal people. it goes beyond the stereotipes. Michelle and Ryan have a truly amazing chemistry. Filmed in 16mm and written almost 8 years before it was shot, this is a very mature film that was done on a small budget, heavely improvised, with natural lightning. The outcome is fantastic. A must see for it's uniqueness.
Trevor G (kr) wrote: This was one of the better war movies I've seen recently. Meant to watch it earlier but just never got around to it. I thought it had great action sequences and decent character development... telling the story from another perspective.. that being the Canadian one. I would highly recommend watching it.
