This is a funny take at Edmond Rostand's Cyano DeBegerac. Cyrano is played by Steve Martin. If you have read the play you will see a slightly different but still funny nose speech. If you have not read it, this movie is still really sweet and cute. If I remember correctly, there is a really nice quote in the movie "When your reaching for the stars, there is a long way to fall, I almost never let this moment happen, now I feel sorry for those who it never comes". Isn't that the story of so many of our lives. Life is not a spectator sport, as he learns. I do not think the ending of this movie was as good as the play's ending. The play's ending was a lot more touching. Nevertheless, its a good movie.
