Ensofter Overrated and overhyped
Baseshment I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
Allison Davies The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Lachlan Coulson This is a gorgeous movie made by a gorgeous spirit.
leet24 I saw this movie for the first time a few years after it was made. I watched this movie and totally fell in love with Christian Slater. Yep, it was a tear jerker alright. To describe the movie to someone, it probably sounds corny and you wouldn't think it would be such a great movie. I was surprised how much I DID like it. (but of course, seeing Christian Slater play that part won me over so I'm probably biased there). But no, seriously, I thought it really was a great movie. If I had to list my five all time favourite romance movies, that would be in there, no doubt. I think I've probably seen just about every movie he's been in by now and there's quite a lot of them too.
anniesm10 I just discovered this movie recently! I was looking for a romantic movie and after reading the opinions on here about it, I decided to give it a try and buy it! I did like Christian Slater in Robin Hood, Murder in the First, Kuffs, to name a few, but after this movie he is totally at the top of my favorite actors' list!!! His performance was so true, so moving!! As for Marisa, I didn't really knew her before this movie, but she was also truly amazing in her role!! They make such a cute, believable, perfect couple!! I usually try to keep the tears in when watching a movie with someone else, but this time, I just couldn't!! Truly one of the most romantic, touching movie I've ever seen!! I wish there was more movies just like this one!
xredgarnetx UNTAMED HEART tells the story of the romance between a lovelorn diner waitress (Tomei) and shy busboy (Slater). It is a sad, sweet movie without the usual gloss and pretension that ruin so many filmed love stories. These are working class people living working class lives. Tomei is touching as a woman who has been hurt once too often but who still holds out hope. Slater gives one of his best performances as the virtually mute busboy with both social and health problems. A heart-tugging vignette at the very beginning, involving the busboy as child in a Catholic orphanage, foreshadows later events in the film. Slater underplays beautifully, and thankfully so as this is Tomei's film all the way. She never looked more beautiful than she does here. Watch for the Christmas morning scene. Tomei wakes up to a special magic thanks to her busboy pal, and magnificently conveys her sense of wonder. Beware, however: UNTAMED HEART (BOY WITH A BABOON HEART would have been a better title) is a two-box of Kleenex.
nassifdo This movie was ridiculous from beginning to end. The characters were all so unlikeable that there was nothing to make up for the corny unimaginative story. The Slater character freaked me out so much. how could she fall for me. he practically stalked her prior to the relationship. The whole hockey date night made me laugh though, possibly the cheesiest movie moment ever. The relationship made no sense either. She is sick of dating loser and weirdos so she picks a psychotic, creepy, socially inept busboy. Someone explain how anyone can like this piece of trash. The only reason I gave it a 3 instead of a 1 is that I have a huge crush on Marissa Tomei.
