Movie Reviews

Do you love "As Time Goes By"?
Darlene | 08/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Then you MUST buy this complete series. It is different, but wonderful. Dame Judi and Bob Larbey (the author of both this and "As Time Goes By") shine. Judi Dench plays opposite her now deceased husband, Michael Williams, and they are a real treat. Playing a middle-aged couple who miss as often as they click, they show, through real acting skills, what this crazy thing called love is.
I bought this, not having heard a word, or seen a bit. Because I so enjoyed "As Time Goes By". I sat down with my mom and we laughed and cried and just loved it.
DO NOT hestitate-for this cannot be available much longer-it is over 20 years old. Just go for won't be sorry."
Loved the series!

"Judi Dench is so great at this type of comedy.
I would have loved to have seen her in something of Neil Simons.
Her gift for repartee is impressive. As a long time watcher of
"As Time goes By" I was delighted to find this series.
Rather bittersweet that it was made with her husband, who she lost after a long and I gather successful marriage."
The Finest of Sitcoms!

""A Fine Romance" brings together the witty writing of Bob Larbey with the engaging comic delivery of Michael Williams and Judi Dench. The unfathomable attraction of this unlikely and very awkward couple is conveyed convincingly through the physical comedy, the sharp and seamless delivery of lines and a brilliant sense of timing. We roll in our seats as they throw buckets of water at each other, cower before the dentist and deliver a brilliant dinner party which neither could attend! As viewers we long for them to get it right at the same time as we revel in all they do hilariously wrong. While this sitcom was created in the early '80s it continues to capture and represent the struggles that all couples face as they embark on a relationship, taken of course to the comic extreme! Dench and Williams breath new life into the sitcom genre, both coming from strong theatrical backgrounds, their sense of dramatic engagement is at times unexpected but always incredibly fun."
Anglophile loves Judi Dench.

"She really brings a character to life. And this short series of British comedy was really enjoyable."
