Sweet, Funny, Brilliant, & Unique

I watched this film on recommendation from a good friend whose opinion I trust, and let me tell you I was not disappointed. I think I would pity anyone who watches this film, and cannot find a way to relate to its subject matter. Most of the humor (and one of the things that make this movie so good) is that t is based on the assumption that the viewer relates to the events on screen. I can remember times in my life where I had the same feelings as Gabe and the same fears about acting on them. The performances by the two young stars are very good, while neither of these children may have the talent of Haley Joel Osment or Dakota Fanning (although many recent Academy Award winners do not have the acting chops of Miss Fanning). None the less these kids do a wonderful job; they give performances both humorous and nuanced. These are two truly likable you actors and I look forward to seeing them in future endeavors. This film does not break any new ground in telling a love story, but where it is innovative is in approaching the subject both from the perspective of children, and more specifically, focusing on this from specifically the boys point of view. Perhaps this made it resonate more with me, being a man who can vividly remember what it was like to first begin to experience the feelings that Gabe begins to experience in this film. However this is a film for all, and is more than acceptable for young and old. I am not certain if children too young to relate to the subject matter would have a full appreciation of the film, however the physical comedy and less subtle humor will certainly still play well with a young audience. It is a shame that this film did not have a more successful initial run, I have yet to personally come across anyone who saw this film and did not love it as I do. I hope that people will find this movie at their local video store and give it a chance, as it is easily the best romantic comedy of the last year.

Beautiful movie...

It's about time! I've been tired of the usual romantic comedies -- guy in high-school/college/work falls in love with beautiful girl -- the courting.. the romanticism (i mean physical stuff! a lot of it!).. breakup.. rejoining.. happy ever after. The usual formula.. it's followed since the start of time and it will remain there until the nukes destroy this world. BUT this movie had something different to offer.. of course there's a guy and definitely there's a girl.. and yES! he falls in love! that's obvious.. wouldn't be a romantic comedy without that.. One thing that is definitely different in this case is that the boy is a 10 yr old and the girl.. um.. 11 yrs.. So.. yeah.. a brilliant concept.. looking at love from the perspective of a kid. Something we saw before in The Wonder Years of course.. but much more. It gives you a very personal look at New York and Manhattan. The emotions and the feelings evoked by the whole affair in the situation is realistic and very funny. Overall a feel good movie with a different twist on the physical side of love.. Please watch it! I'm sure you'll love every second!

Great movie to see with the kids

Little Manhattan was a fun ride from beginning to end. I took my wife and daughters who are 13 and 11 years old and everyone had a good time. I really lost my self in this story. It was good natured without being corny. This is the first time I saw a movie that makes me want to visit New York. With all of the mean spirited movies out today this reminds of how nice it is to enjoy a good story. I would like to see more of this kind of writing in every movie. I plan to buy the DVD for my 11 year old when it becomes available.
