Editorial Reviews

High school oddball Gregory (Gordon Sinclair, Local Hero) discovers that the only thing better than scoring on the soccer field is scoring off it in this "ever delightful adolescent romantic comedy" (The Village Voice) that won a British Academy Award for Best Screenplay. "Likable andlight-hearted" (The Hollywood Reporter), this delightful Scottish film triumphs with "sweetness, good humor, a gentle, compassionate spirit and winning performances" (Los Angeles Times)! Gregory is upset. He's been bumped from his position on the soccer team by a girl! However, his anger turns to frustration when he realizes that he's not only jealous of his replacement he's also in love with her! And though she agrees to go out on a date with him, Gregory finds that, as both a player and a love interest, she kicks well above his head! "Fresh, true, funny [and] full of charm" (The New Republic), Gregory's Girl is the match of the day!

This is one of the best films of this genre.

If you'd like a film that simply cracks you up and makes you appreciate life in general, then this is a film for you.

The story is really well done and the cast and direction are spot on in this really charming and funny film.

Finally, "Gregory's Girl" is out on DVD... I can throw away my worn out old VHS copy. There are several surprising things about this DVD for Americans who are accustomed to the cable or VHS version of the movie... First, many small scenes were edited out of the US version. Why? I can't tell... The scenes seem harmless enough. However, the biggest shock on this DVD is the original Scottish soundtrack. All these years, those dozens and dozens of viewings, those classic lines that are stuck in my head ("It's a well known fact.")... They simply sound BETTER in the original dialogue. What studio executive pinhead thought it would be a good idea to re-record the dialogue with more British-sounding voices? The moral of the story here is: Watch this DVD with the Scottish soundtrack and it will almost be like watching a new movie. And I thank the non-pinheads at MGM for including both audio versions so we could make the choice.
This movie is, quite simply, a beautifully crafted, intelligent, witty, sweet look at awkward adolescence. I never tire of it, and now that it's on DVD I know I'll never wear it out.

Very quickly, this is a wonderful, gentle comedy which plays well to people who understand British humour. But why, why, why did the studio cut parts out? The DVD format could easily hold the entire movie. My recommendation is to buy the VHS tape, it's cheaper anyway and it shows the movie uncut. To the studio staff who made the decision to cut parts out....thanks for nothing.

I remember this Movie from when I was sixteen years old, so I associate it with a coming of age, Which is essentially what this movie is about. Much in the same way as John Hughes set the standard in 80s America , Forsyth set the standard in the late 70s and early 80s in the UK , albiet on a smaller scale.

Gregory on a voyage of self discovery finds that his destiny isnt necessarily in his own hands and also that everything happens for a reason. There is a certain amount of sentimentality associated with this movie but this isnt a criticism, In fact it lends a certain charm to this story.

An understated role by a certain CP Grogan establishes a credible ending to this movie and one that a lot of school girls of her age will identify with. This is one of the reasons this movie has endured the ravages of time. Enough to inspire a sequel "Gregory's Two Girls" which has unfortunately neither the charm or credibility or simplicity that the original of some 20 years earlier has.

I strongly encourage you to play this movie with the original scottish soundtrack as to not do so would detract from the film in its original glory.

Also Claire Grogan is not only a member of new wave band "Altered Images" but also a star of Red Dwarf, a rather popular Britcom. Nowadays she can be seen presenting on MTV Europe as well as doing the odd 80s revival tour.

having attended a state high school on the west coast of scotland in the 80's i can categorically state that this film captures exactly the mood of the west-coast scottish schoolboy of the time. Forsythe uses Jacques Tati type humour to put his vision across. And what a vision it is-- hormones, confusion and utterly gorgeous midsummer Scottish sunshine and blonde haired girls. C'mon, there's a world out there, and it's our's 'cause we're young and immortal. Watching the country park scenes now as a 31 year old I realise that being young was stoopid but great. This film is the only truly scotch classic. Forget those Edinburgh trainspotting depressive drug users, the drug is life and Glasgow is the best city in the world, like new york but without the commuting time.

Gregory (Gordon John Sinclair) is an awkward teenager living in Scotland. He likes to play the drums, spend time with his friends and play football (otherwise known as soccer in the United States). He lives with his parents and younger sister in a modest house.
His football couch approaches him and tells him that they need new blood in the team, and hints of the idea of kicking him off the team. Gregory, who is in the midst of puberty, is now gangly and can't play the sport as well as before, is nervous about his potential ousting of the team. At the football trials, in walks in their latest team member, Dorothy (Dee Hepburn). What starts with fear and frustration about possibly being bumped from the football team, turns into love at first sight.
This movie depicts secondary school life where teenagers are awkward, and unsure of themselves in most aspects of their lives. We see glimpses of Gregory's fellow schoolmates as they too try to catch girls' attentions, by trying to impress them with their vast intelligence, "it's a well-known fact that when you sneeze, it comes out of your nose at 100 miles an hour...". The movie is humorous and light-hearted as it shows us how Gregory tries to catch the girl of his dreams, Dorothy, the one with "the hair, the teeth and the smell".
There is another humorous interaction between Gregory and his father, who is a driving instructor. Gregory is crossing the street, without looking both ways, when his father is trying to teach a man how to drive. In the process, his father has to tell the driver to swerve to the left and right and do an emergency stop to avoid hitting Gregory, who has his hand on the hood of the car running backwards trying to avoid getting hit!
