Movie Reviews

A romantic zen baseball comedy
KML | Bainbridge Island, WA United States | 07/10/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When you hear folks say that they don't make 'em like that anymore, they might be talking about "BY THE SEA". This is a very cool story about a young Cuban girl searching for idenity who stumbles into a coastal resort kitchen gig with a zen motorcycle maintenance man, three hysterical Italian chefs and a Latino fireballing right handed pitcher who plays on the team sponsored by the resort's owner. As is often the case she 'finds' herself through honest, often comical but always emotional, interaction with this sizzling roster of players. With the perfect mix of special effects, that salsa sound and flashbacks, BY THE SEA, gets 4 BIG stars from me!"
Really Enjoyed it !

"A great find, heard of this movie from a friend, and glad I did. A really well done romantic comedy with a magical twist. The acting is terrific (I regognized the girl from the Sopranos), the scenery/locations were beautiful and the story held up the whole way. A great date movie. You won't be sorry."
A lovely story

"I was surprised, and so touched, by this movie. What a delightful find! A friend recommended it, and they weren't wrong at all. The story is lovely, with a lot of heart. The actress who plays Elena is beautiful. And the locations! Wow. I want to visit there, wherever this is. The story gave me hope, and inspiration, and a desire to have my own magic happen by the sea!! Really, a must watch, good to cuddle up with a loved one."
