Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Internationally renowned French film star Gérard Depardieu made his first bid at Hollywood success with the light romantic comedy Green Card. Director Peter Weir wrote the part specifically for the actor; it was his first English-language role of any note. Though he continued to appear in American productions -- including the big-budget 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) and the dreadful remake of My Father the Hero (1994) -- few were as well-received as Green Card. The actor is complemented by his appealing co-star, Andie MacDowell, and Weir gives his predictable material a breezy touch. A moderate success, Green Card was clearly not in the same box-office league as Weir's previous mainstream hits, Dead Poets Society and Witness. Weir garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original screenplay.

    OH MY SWEET GOODNESS - AN IRRESISTIBLY IRRESISTIBLE KING OF COMEDY!!!

    Indeed, there are quite a few movies that you should watch: the Godfather Trilogy, the Silence of the Lambs, the Star Wars Trilogy, Promises (foreign film), and my sweet and sugary goodness - one helluva of a lot more! But if you watch movies at ALL, Green Card is a MUST MUST MUST. One man is foreign and wants a green card to get into the United States, and a woman wants to become a landlady, but must marry first. So what do they do to get what they want? They marry - THEN fall in love. You'll howl with laughter and literally pummel your fists to death with this movie - because Green Card is THE irresistibly irresistible king of comedy!!!
