A very sweet, very funny movie about a woman rediscovering her independent self while in the throes of a midlife crisis. Beautiful Greek scenery, excellent cast of characters, great acting, really good storyline and writing. All in all, highly recommended. One of my favorites that I've watched over and over again.

Great Movie

"I had seen this movie when it was first released and loved it. I bought the VCR cassette the first day it was released and watched it a couples of times a year until I afraid that it would wear out. Imagine my surprise and delight when I found it on DVD. Now I can start watching it several times a year again. Thank you for always having what I need."

"I bought this movie for my friends (2 movies). I have had this movie in my possession for over 15 years. This movie is beloved by many of my friends. I wanted to buy it on DVD, but it was too expensive. Shirley Valentine is a must see for anyone going through a change of life or divorce. It was a one woman play in London and the movie embellished it. Shirley is fantastic. I know the movie changed my life. Women of the world, you need this movie. Also my significant other, Ron, loved the movie! It is for men also. Connie
A MUST SEE!!!!!"

"Middle-aged Shirley Valentine (Pauline Collins) likes to reminisce about her younger, rebellious days before she married, had children, and her life became a bore. When a friend invites her to go to Greece, she happily leaves Liverpool behind, knowing whatever lies ahead has to be better than what she has.

I know this is a tremendously popular movie, but I found it really dull and predictable. Pauline Collins didn't engage me at all; she wasn't charismatic or interesting and I kept thinking, "There must be more to her..." but there wasn't. The photography on the island of Mykonos was lovely, but the story took such a fairy tale turn that all reality went out the window.

Shirley quite often looked into the camera and addressed the audience, a technique that works well if the character is likable or funny, or outrageous, but Shirley was none of these. The movie tried too hard to be cute, but was just boring."
