Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"Bed of Nails" would have been a better title for this romance, an excruciating exercise that brings out all the worst in the genre. Christian Slater's performance is the high point of this flick, but his character is so obvious that even his subtle skills ultimately makes little difference. Slater plays Lewis, a florist who looks up one night during one of his habitual nocturnal walks and spies Mary Stuart Masterson weeping in a window. The next day he follows her to work and delivers a gorgeous arrangement of posies, leaving her guessing as to the identity of her secret admirer. We must wonder why Lewis pursues her with abandon, as Masterson's character Lisa seems nothing but a dull workaholic. Well, okay, she's also neurotic. First-time director-writer Michael Goldenberg's lopsided script lets us see the psychic damage harbored by both of the main characters, but doesn't make Lisa interesting enough to warrant all the attention heaped upon her, whereas Lewis is a model of perfection. Goldenberg often slips and slides over many details in the story. Since the dialogue is not particularly witty or meaningful, and the plot has pretty much withered by the second reel, there isn't much left on the screen to enjoy. --Rochelle O'Gorman

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little movie November 26, 2005
By scrappy
Format:DVD
Like others have mentioned, this movie is sweet, sentimental, has a nice soundtrack, and it deals with people scarred by life who find each other. Is it groundbreaking? No. But its value lies in its sweet sentimentality. It's an escapist movie and it makes you feel warm & fuzzy inside. Frankly, with so many dismal movies out there, or movies that show the destructive side of human nature (violence, dysfunction, etc), I don't mind have a movie in my collection that makes me feel good every time I watch it. This film does that. Also, it is a different genre than romantic comedies (e.g., any movie with Meg Ryan in it); there is a little comedy in this film, but its focus is on the healing power that love and companionship offer, which offers its "feel good" punch. Ignore the professional movie critics who were tough on the sentimentality of this film. This is a keeper because it offers a nice escapist, and positive, experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bed of Roses March 20, 2008
Format:DVD
I have never been a huge fan of Christian Slater, but this movie changed my opinion of him. He stars in this charming, heartwarming drama with Mary Stuart Masterson. Christian plays Lewis, a florist that has pretty much dropped out of life. Mary plays Lisa, an executive that does nothing but work. On the surface it doesn't appear they have much in common, but we later learn that he used to be in the fast track until fate robbed him of his family. They are both broken people that hope to heal each other.

If you are like me and love both romance and beautiful flowers and believe that somehow the two should always really go together then the low profile and little talked about love story "Bed of Roses", is an essential viewing experience. Starring a perfectly teamed Christian Slater and Mary Stuart Masterton as two seemingly ill matched individuals who find love together and learn alot about themselves in the process this drama could be seen by the cynical in this day an age as being hopelessly "old fashioned". However its charm and especially its very definite message of excepting people with all their faults and weaknesses as the unique individuals they are is truly timeless. Often dismissed as simply another "chick flick" (God I hate that term!) this is one of my favourite "romance" dramas that is ideal for members of both sexes and I find a viewing of it tends to revitalise the spirit and renew hope that real love does exist out there. Visually it is a beautiful looking film ideal for watching with a special someone containing as it does numerous shots of the most beautiful flowers imaginable and many interesting shots of New York during the Christmas season sure to create a good feeling in those watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Everyone is entitled to a little too much perfection" October 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
At the time that this movie was in theaters, I didn't really want to see it, so I didn't. I later rented it on one of those nights where I needed a feel good romance.
Bed of Roses was that and a lot more. Christian Slater was amazing as a very rare male romantic, and Mary Stuart Masterson was also endearing as his love interest.
The only downfall was the trite script, but that was more than made up for by the wonderful acting, and the beautiful idea of the story.
It makes you really think about what love is really all about.
For a wonderful romantic movie that gives you a reason to go out and look for that special someone, see Bed of Roses.
Everyone really is entitled to a little too much perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare and beautiful love story. June 25, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I can not say enough about "Bed of Roses." I would give this 10 stars if I could. Christian Slater and Mary Stuart Masterson were born to play Lewis and Lisa. There's nothing fake about this story. What's so appealing is that this story could happen to anybody. It's about a flower shop owner named Lewis Farrell(played by Slater) who while on one of his nightly walks comes upon a woman standing at her window crying. Feeling sorry for her he follows her to work the next morning and finds out her name is Lisa Walker(played by Masterson).So he pretends to be a delivery boy delivering her flowers. He leaves the card blank because he doesn't want her to know it was him who sent her the flowers. Wanting to know who sent them, Lisa looks on the card and sees where they came from. So she goes to the shop the next day and asks to speak with the person who delivered the flowers. They tell her where to find Lewis, and she goes to talk to him. Well Lewis refuses to tell her who bought them. So she walks away from him, and the next morning he sees her outside the flower shop. He invites her to breakfast and he finally reveals to her that it was he who bought them. Well they start seeing each other,but what Lewis doesn't know is that Lisa has a secret from her past that has left her scard,and afraid to let anyone get close to her. What Lisa doesn't know is that Lewis has a secret of his own. Lisa finds herself falling hopelessly in love with him, but she has built a invisable wall between herself and her emotions because she feels she is unworthy of recieving his love. So she breaks the relationship off, but she learns that she can't live without him, and that life is all about taking chances, and letting go. Read more ›
