Editorial Reviews

In the same romantic spirit as PRETTY WOMAN and GHOST, GREEN CARD lights up the screen with its irresistible charm and lighthearted humor! The fun starts when two strangers (Andie MacDowell, SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE), and Academy Award(R)-nominee Gerard Depardieu (CYRANO DE BERGERAC) agree to a marriage of convenience -- thinking it's going to be hassle-free. She'll get to live in the apartment of her dreams, he'll get a "green card" to live in the U.S. But before they know it, the two opposites encounter far greater differences than most married couples could ever imagine! And worst yet, this mismatched twosome just might be falling love. Winner of two Golden Globe Awards (Best Picture and Best Actor), this delightful tale enjoyed cheers from critics and audiences alike. With its sunny mix of wit, spirit, and charm, GREEN CARD is an entertaining hit you'll never forget!

4.0 out of 5 stars CAPTIVATING June 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The slim premise of Green Card -- a French slob wants to be a US citizen; a left-wing socialite wants a fabulous apartment with a greenhouse; they get married -- creeps up on you, and expands in ways that will surprise you. Yes, this is a love story, but it is somehow much more than that. Peter Weir, who directed Witness (a wonderful, evocative romance), has a way of weaving a spell on you with his movies. Here, he is aided by the galvanic performance of Gerard Depardieu, who is life itself. Andie MacDowell, who is his inferior in the acting department, is suited to her uptight role in a way that favors her: you can actually believe she could be this person, which is usually not the case with this lovely but inept actress. Bebe Neuwirth is her usual dead-on self, in a great, if small, supporting role. The New York locations, particularly that spectacular greenhouse apartment, are winning, and shot with affection. On top of everything, the movie features, in key moments of tension and emotion, the music of Enya, which of course elevates and punctuates scenes in inventive ways. The final moment is a well-earned emotional one, and I think you, like me, will find it hard to resist Green Card, after all is said and done.

I never tire of this movie, watching it probably five or six times a year. Here is absolutely enchanting Andie MacDowell of the subtle Southern accent and prim Peter-Pan-collar blouses, who is happily single and dating but wants a penthouse-cum-greenhouse in a New York City co-op and needs to present herself to the co-op board as a married, dependable type. And here is somewhat bumbling and beastly although undeniably sexy Gerard Depardieu, supposedly a French composer of African-inspired music, who has a shady history and strange tatoo and wants to marry for a green card. The ending of the movie always makes me cry, no matter how many times I've seen it. Oh, the way that Gerard Depardieu looks at her after The Kiss! One of my all-time favorite movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A marriage of convienience November 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is a sweet and funny film about two strangers, Bronte (Andie McDowell) and Georges (Gerard Depardieu)who agree to marry to keep Georges from being deported. Before they know it, they encounter immigration and have to live together in order to give the premise that they are happily married. It is when these two are forced to live together, that they begin to fall in love! This movie is a lot of fun to watch and Gerard Depardieu is terrific!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bona Fide or Bogus Marriage December 4, 2007
Format:DVD
This amusing romantic comedy stars the beautiful and talented Audie MacDowell who plays Bronte, a botanist and gardner, and the charming teddy-bear like Gerard Depardieu, who is a music composer but moonlights as a waiter until he hits the big time. Each with their own agenda, agree to a marriage of convenience and break the law. Bronte's purpose is to have enough money to continue her projects of creating gardens in the inner city for the disadvantaged. George's purpose is to obtain the coveted green card, since he arrived only on a visitor's visa. The unexpected twists and turns in this creative comedy provide great entertainment, making it a "must see" film ...

The Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) pull a surprise visit to spoil their plans ... Bronte had just moved into an exclusive apartment. She had been interviewd by the tenant's committe to whom she lied that her husband was in Africa, doing academic research on music of the region. George moves in with Bronte as they scheme how to outwit the INS who are investigating if theirs is a "real marriage" or a ruse to trick the government. When their personal habits clash - the two realize just how little they know about each other. They share personal information and create a detailed nonexistent past - to outwit the government agents. Gerard Depardieu is amazingly funny as he ad libs scenes inventing stories to cover up his fake husband role ... He is especially effective in scenes where Bronte meets her good friend Lauren, played by the ever dead-pan comedienne, Bebe Niewirth, who is intrigued by George. George does an outstanding performance to impress Lauren's parents at a dinner party in their home. He wins Bronte's affections due to his creativity. Even Bronte's parents are won over by George's antics.

5.0 out of 5 stars I shall be waiting for your letter, Cherie... June 14, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
What a great movie...very funny and very romantic! Illegal alien Gerard Depardieu marries American gardener Andie MacDowell for his Green Card in this absolutely charming comedy. The INS is investigating their marriage to make sure it's for real. Depardieu's got that puppy-dog face that women find irresistable; Andie's goal-oriented modern woman has a sweet, vulnerable side. The scene where they take "honeymoon" photos is really cute. You'll be cheering (and crying!) at the end. Both stars give unforgettable performances and the script is delightful. A wonderful "date movie!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Green Card...a charming, funny film April 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Leonard Maltin may call Green Card a "thin, scarcely credible" romantic comedy, but how many romantic comedies are really "credible"? "Pretty Woman", "Sleepless in Seattle" -- both are great romantic comedies, but neither would win any realism awards. This movie has what all good romantic comedies need to have -- two attractive and charming lead characters facing humorous roadblocks to their obviously meant-to-be relationship.
This film was overlooked when it came out, but it deserves a second chance. Andie Macdowell is lovely and funny as Bronte, but it is Gerard Depardieu as Georges who steals the show. It is wonderful to see this unkempt, chain-smoking, abrasive Frenchman start to make inroads into the all too proper Bronte's heart.
One of the funniest scenes is the impromptu concert composer Georges gives for Bronte's stuffy society friends.
If you love lighthearted romance, this is one movie you'll really enjoy.
