    Christian Slater shines

    A hidden gem!!! Bed of Roses is a truly beautiful movie. A "quiet little movie" compared to many of the Hollywood blockbusters - but oh... SO much better!!!

    Christian Slater delivers. BIG TIME. This is one of his best roles (this, and The Name of The Rose) and he shows why he should be considered for the multi-layer-roles out there.
    The chemestry between Slater and Mary Stuart Masterson is played out with such tenderness, strength and vulnerability that one feels drawn to know more about these two characters after the movie is over.

    A must see.

    Bravo to Mr. Slater and Miss Masterson - they keep true acting alive in Bed of Roses.

    Wonderful

    This movie is truly wonderful and a great representation of how to learn to leave some things behind you. One of the best love stories and the most romantic.

    I love this movie!

    This movie was a truely endearing love story. It shows you why even though bad things have in life and you must not feel sorry for yourself and deal with pain in life. I love both of the actors so that's makes it better.
