I wanted more

Good acting, how can you go wrong with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, but it didn't quite click for me. I kept waiting for the moment when their relationship became real to me and I wanted so badly to be emotionally involved in the story, but it never quite happened. Good messages in the film and enjoyable. Some swearing.

Human movie

Not humane but human, meaning probably ALL of us have gone through what I like to call a Harvey day, where crap just goes wrong and you can't seem to catch a break. I'm not sure the movie would've worked as well if the 2 main stars hadn't given great performances though. Nonetheless movie watchers with quiet tastes should check this film out.

One of those beautifully, rare films you gotta see!

I love love LOVE this movie! First time I saw it I fell in love. And not just for Hoffman, even though he is fantastic as usual. Emma Thompson was adorable! I liked how this movie felt SO realistic, the characters just pull you through the screen and you capture their every emotion. It was very sad yet had it's humorous side which was perfect. I think a lot of tweens and teens will not enjoy this particular film, because it lacks the usual violence and mature themed content that most people enjoy. Although, if you're one of those people who just love a nice, sweet romantic drama than I highly recommend this one. This movie gets 5 shining stars out of five, from me!!

A Charming and Moving Love Story...

LAST CHANCE HARVEY won't appeal to many kids, but it serves as a pleasant break from shoot-`em-up action pictures. It is a sweet, funny romance about second chances, feuled by the charisma of its two leads, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. Language is the biggest issue in the film, with one or two "h*ll"s and several "s**t"s. There are a few mild sexual references, such as an 80 year old man reading an excerpt from his psychosexual novel (nongraphic and played for laughs). A few people drink at parties.
