    A charming, low-key romantic comedy, MURPHY'S ROMANCE is full of the small pleasures missing from other pictures of its genre. James Garner, in his first Oscar-nominated performance, is the title character, Murphy. Garner lends his unique, down-home persona to the character while the film's writers endow the character with some memorable lines. Murphy's romance begins when Emma (Field) arrives in the small Arizona town where he lives. With her she brings her son Jake, and a feisty attitude. Though this sounds like a set-up from any number of other film romances, it becomes clear from their first meeting that the director, Martin Ritt, is more interested in his carefully observed setting, and in the comic flirtations between Murphy and Emma flirtations, than in making a conventional picture. In fact, some of the film's strongest comic scenes occur when the locals show off their color, including a hilarious sequence during a bingo game that showcases the amazing support cast. Of course, there is some drama and confrontation, but the focus remains on the setting and the relationship between Murphy and Emma, whose lengthy romance is the clear mark of one of the most highly enjoyable movie courtships ever seen.

      Excellent romantic comedy. Sally Field as a lovable divorced mother of teenage boy who buys an old horse farm and tries to drum up business and ends up finding love in a small town until her ex shows up and throws a wrench into her plans and thats when it gets interesting. Trying to sort out her feelings for her ex and the feelings she is developing for the new older man that has come into her life makes things complicated but funny. A must see for woman who have given up on love and for men who think that love wont come around around again because you think you are too old (which you never are).

      I saw this movie on the big screen when it came out in 1986 and thought it was excellent. I've also watched it a couple of times on a VHS tape. Then when the DVD was available, I just had to add it to my movie collection. James Garner has been a favorite actor of mine for a very long time as has Sally Field. Their chemistry and the fact that he is an "older man" was so endearing. I especially liked their conversation at the end and look forward to hearing it again everytime I watch it. I highly recommend this movie for the entire family!
