It’s been a long time since I’ve had so much fun at a movie! Casanova is absolutely delightful! It’s smart, witty, silly – it’s a romp, a tour de farce, and a romantic comedy. It’s rated R, which is kind of over the top from what I’ve seen. There’s no real violence, some love scenes but no blatant sex, no nudity. You see a lot more skin on The OC than you do in this movie. Sure, there’s cleavage, it just comes with the costumes. I wouldn’t be hesitant to take teens to see this. Heath Ledger plays the title character. I have always liked that guy! He’s been in such a variety of movies, and he’s always good. And here he’s excellent – he’s the perfect choice to play the notorious lothario. Sienna Miller plays the one who is hard for him to get, and Lena Olin is outrageous and wonderful as her mother. We just laughed and laughed. The time went by quickly and we left the theatre smiling. Wish they’d make more like this one.
With a reputation for seducing members of the opposite sex, regardless of their marital status, a notorious womanizer discovers a beauty who seems impervious to his charms. However, as he continues to pursue the indifferent lady, he finds himself falling in love.
