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!!!!

There isn't really anything to say about LOVESICK that hasn't been said by the other Amazon.com 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

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.

"Lovesick" is a favorite of mine. I must caution you that if you never liked the late Dudley Moore's ability to blend comedy with romance, then it may not appeal to you as much. Moore began as a comic in the UK straight out of Oxford and then became enormously famous in the USA for his romantic comedy "10". This film was made after "10" in 1983. The female lead is Elizabeth McGovern, who currently is best known as Lord Grantham's wife in "Downton Abbey". McGovern was a beautiful leading lady at this early part of her career and prior to this had scored big in "Ragtime" and "Ordinary People." Today viewers know her primarily in her current Countess role.

Dudley Moore plays the psychiatrist who falls in love with his new patient, McGovern, the very first time he sees her in session. He was sent her as a patient because the preceding psychiatrist, played by a beleaguered Wally Shawn, had the same problem.

This is comedy and romance and not in the least drama. The ethical problems of such a dilemma and the problems this might present on both sides are not a concern of this film. Since he falls hard the minute he meets her, that is not much of an issue anyway.

There are flights of fantasy in this film with Moore and Sigmund Freud. There are also hilarious moments, especially in the beginning, when Moore stumbles all over himself with being caught in this dilemma. Although Moore is married, this is dealt with easily by making his wife a downtown art gallery operator who long term has been having an affair with one of her artists and is looking for a way out of her marriage so as to switch to the artist. Far from being opposed, Moore's falling in love with someone else is the answer to her prayers.

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