5.0 out of 5 stars A 2 Star movie that rates 5 stars! January 12, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
According to Leonard Maltin, this is a 2 star movie. And I can agree with that on most counts. What makes this movie a 5 star film is the special magic it casts upon the viewer - I mean me.
How can you put magic into words? Impossible.
I can only say this...there is a special magic about Moore falling for McGovern. You can see it happening - hell, I could see it on their faces. It's that knock-down-drag-me-out kind of love that defies emotional definition. It has happened to us all - at least I hope it has, for this kind of love is worth experiencing at least once.
What makes this film magical is the fact that it all works out. In real life there are too many variables that inevitably screw everything up. But in this movie, everything worked out perfectly. Only in Hollywood.
I would be greatly remiss if I didn't give special kudos to Peter Gabriel, whose beautiful music perfectly captured the beauty of the scenes. This music worked to enhance the magic still further. I only wish it were on CD! I'm a 56 year old male who still feels a tear when the last scene lifts to a panoramic view of Central Park and the music takes you away.
Last and not least, the actors collected for this enterprise are of noteworthy status...Moore, McGovern, Ron Silver, John Huston, David Strathairn, Alec Guinness, Alan King, Selma Diamond, and my favorite, Wallace Shawn. Quite a cast for a 2 star movie.
If you're not a romantic, you won't have the foggiest notion of what I'm talking about. But then, this movie is not for non-romantic people.
Forget "reality". Just watch this movie and let it take you away!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Wonderful Experience To Treasure Forever. February 28, 2004
There isn't really anything to say about LOVESICK that hasn't been said by the other reviewers already. But my gosh, I just have to express my love for this movie! , I consider myself madly in love with a girl. LOVESICK is the very first film I have ever seen to accurately express this dazzling, baffling, and just plain ridiculous feeling we call love. Dudley Moore gives a quiet, toned-down performance (at least when compared to ARTHUR), which gives him a realism like nothing I have ever seen on film. Same goes for Elizabeth McGovern, who with her exceptional beauty and controlled delivery makes her all the more believable. You really do feel that these two people are madly in love! Dudley Moore's slowly escalating obsession with this woman is a marvel to behold, with frequent visits from Ales Guiness in a terrific supporting role. Another key aspect of the film is the music by Peter Knight; magical, enchanting, and every other similar word fails to describe it. Words cannot begin to describe LOVESICK, an everlasting homage to love, through good times and bad times, to ultimately realizing that everything else is rubbish without it.
Or, if you wanted to skip all that other stuff above, do yourself a favor: stop reading this review and GO SEE THIS MOVIE11

3.0 out of 5 stars The score is available December 21, 2006
For those of you who love this beautiful score, one half-hour of it is available on the Varese Sarabande CD "Sister Mary Explains It All" by Philippe Sarde, which contains the title score, "Lovesick" and selections from "The Manhattan Project" The CD is worth the purchase for "Lovesick" alone. Although long out of print, it can be purchased on iTunes.

This is a subtle, low key but very funny and wise film. Great showcase for Dudley Moore. Beautiful, sophisticated music score as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time machine to a better place. March 23, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was fantastic. It was made in a more innocent time before AIDS, stalking laws and all of the scandelous relationships between patients and doctors were plastered all over the media. Hell, there was'nt even such a thing as sexual harrassment back then. I look at the film now and somehow feel sentimental for a period when we did'nt know how dangerous a place the world could be. Blissful ignorence.

Dudley Moore was just one of the all time comedic genius's that will never be duplicated. Practically anything starring him was sure to be a hit, even though overshadowed by Tom Hanks in the end. I especially liked the narritive by the Freud character, it makes the film unique and catches you off guard while being so appropriate and funny. Charming, whistful, clever and enduring, what more is to be said. If you can get past the funny 80's clothes and old cars of the day the film is a real treat, if you are older then it will take you back to a time when life was sweeter and fun was a priority.

5.0 out of 5 stars You're never too old for Lovesick(ness)! May 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This romantic/comedy is one of my all-time favorites! Dudley Moore plays a charming, married psychiatrist who falls in love with a young, vulnerable female patient (Elizabeth McGovern). Even though Moore's antics are exaggerated to amuse the viewer, the message has passed the test of time: Once stung by Cupid's arrow, even the most sane adult becomes slightly insane!

1.0 out of 5 stars YUK!!! January 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Quite inane...almost without redemption, except for the comedic talent of Dudley Moore.
Certainly it's no ARTHUR!
Pass on this one (in my opinion).

I am not a Dudley Moore fan, but this is one of his performances that rings true. It is a love story, unabashedly, and is told in a gentle, loving way. Read more
