Utterly charming romantic comedy!

"She's fair game, Joe. It's always open season on princesses."

For enthusiastic fans of romantic comedies, William Wyler's enchanting classic Roman Holiday is an absolute must. With its endearing blend of delightful dialogue, subtle laughs and utterly charming characters, there is little mystery why Roman Holiday has become such a tremendous favourite over the decades. While the fil... read more

One of the best romantic comedies ever!

I had the DVD of this film in my possession for half a year and now after seeing this film, I cannot believe that I didn't watch it sooner! I knew I was going to like Roman Holiday but I was surprised at how much I did love it. It totally gripped me all the way through in all sorts of different ways. Roman Holiday is a beautiful film that is full of romance, comedy and pure modern day adventure. I... read more

A classic

Since this movie is a classic, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though I thought it was fairly enjoyable, I can’t say it was really my thing though. I think it has to do somewhat with my political beliefs. Indeed, I'm a left-wing and I find it always difficult to care for the supposedly difficult romantic life of the rich and aristocrats. Sure, you could argue that since it... read more

Description: Princess Anne embarks on a highly publicized tour of Europian capitals. When she and her royal entourage arrive in Rome, she begins to rebel against her restricted, regimented schedule. One night Anne sneaks out of her room, hops into the back of a delivery truck and escapes her luxurious confinement. However, a sedative she was forced to take earlier starts to take effect, and the princess is soon fast asleep on a public bench. She is found by Joe Bradley, an American newspaper reporter stationed in Rome. He takes her back to his apartment. The next morning Joe dashes off to cover the Princess Anne press conference, unaware tha ... (more)

"You know how you kind of reach that point watching derivative works that the work that set the formula won't rock your socks off unless it really does a whole lot more than just that formula? I've apparently reached that point with romcoms because despite Peck and Hepburn being perfectly charming leads (though only the latter shines in the comedy department) I didn't have an awful lot to grab in this slightly bloated tourist advertisement for Rome. The comedy is quite lacking as Wyler directs i"

"“She’s just so mesmerizing…. She had an innate sense of simplicity about her. Her giggle, her charm, just radiated, and this is a film that would never have really been what it is if it hadn’t been for the charm of the actors.” -Sally Field “It’s not terribly plot-driven but it’s got this wonderfully romantic, light, airy feeling with two people who are perfect in it…. It’s also another example of location filming and what it can add to a film.” -Robert Osborne"

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

""Roman Holiday," a romantic comedy about Princess Ann (Audrey Hepburn), who, tired of her boring royal privileged life, sneaks out of her embassy and dates Joe (Gregory Peck), an American news reporter in Rome, was unique for its time. To me, the reason why it stands out over others in this genre is because of the ending. At first, I didn’t get it because Ann returned to the place she said she hated and didn’t get Joe. In fact, I thought the rest of the film was just a generic 1950’s roman"
