Even with the sad ending, it made the movie.
Paul Newman plays a great role, as does Robin Wright Penn and Kevin Costner.
S. Deaton
Good movie and the story line has a great twist!

I found this movie absolutely fascinating;the story was a typical romance. It explored the human emotion and curiosity that we all feel when we find an insight into another person's relationship. Kevin Costner was your typical man of the sea and portrayed a man not ready to move on with his life after the tragic loss of his partner. It took someone like Robyn Penn Wright to stir the deeply hidden emotions but even then she could not compare to his lost love. She gave him inspiration and made him dig deep to find his true self. Paul Newman was superb as the crusty kindly father and without his inclusion in the film, be it as a supporting role, a lot of the emotion would hasve been lost. The pain suffered by the inlaws at the loss of their daughter was so true to life when someone they love dies so tragically. All in all the scenery was superb and the DVD is recommended

Message in a Bottle, brings to the screen the love story between a recently widowed man from a small fishing village in North Carolina and a divorced journalist out of Chicago.

It is a film about human relations, hope and second chances, but most importantly about trust, love, and inner strength.

Kevin Costner, Robin Wright Penn, Paul Newman, and the rest of the cast, have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are exceptional to say the least! All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows (the chemistry is AMAZING)! Very well written and very well presented, the movie is without a doubt guaranteed to provide a few laughs, not to mention a few tears. The film is simple enough, but does a great job of describing people's every day lives and the problems they face. It just goes to show that simplicity is often far better than complexity, when trying to present issues of a human nature.

The only setbacks are in relation to some weak lines that Robbie Coltrane's character has to say, and also in relation to the little boy; is there really any reason why the boy has to look like a girl???

The setting, the plot, the dialogues and the music are all wonderful!

In short, Message in a Bottle is a movie definitely worth watching and one to seriously consider adding to your movie collection! 4½ Stars

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mike Murray on December 19, 1999
Format: DVD
This is the story of a journey of the heart for Theresa Osborne, a researcher-writer for the Chicago Tribune and a divorced mom with a young son, Jason. When Jason's dad takes him for a summer visit, Theresa's journey begins at a deserted beach on Cape Cod where she finds a message in a bottle.
The message Theresa reads quite obviously tugs at her soul as she proceeds to share it with her hostess at the bed and breakfast where she's staying, with her co-workers back at the Tribune where she returns one day early, and with her boss, who does her the favor of sharing the message with Chicago.
Theresa sets out on a mission, with the paper's encouragement, to find out who the message was written by and the story behind it all. Using her job's resources, she tracks down the author in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He is Garret Blake, a terse ship-builder and restorer whose discomfort with the world around him is alleviated only by his passion for the sea.
Kevin Costner (Blake) does well with roles that don't require a lot of overt emotion and he does well here. Robin Wright-Penn as Theresa was very good as the reporter who gets all too caught up in her story. A special mention of Paul Newman here doing yeoman character work as Blake's father Dodge, who understands his son's pain all too well and who tries to help all around him keep their emotions in check and headed in the right direction.
The movie's downfall comes from a meandering plot from screenwriter Gerald DiPego ("Phenomenon") and a decidedly downbeat denouement. However, the acting, locations, and direction of Luis Mandoki are good, bordering on excellent.

Format: VHS Tape
Right from the very first scene, the viewer senses something extraordinary is about to take place...and it does. Unlike most films today, this one centers upon genuine love - not lust - between two lonely people. Kevin Costner portrays Garrett Blake, a seagoing boat renovator and a widower of two years who cannot let go of the past. Robin Wright-Penn plays Theresa, a research specialists for the Chicago Tribune and a divorcee with a young son. While taking a few days holiday she discovers Garrett's message of love to his deceased wife in a bottle that washed up to shore. Haunted by the letter, she uses her research skills, along with the help of the Chicago newspaper staff, to track Garrett down. The shy awkwardness the two characters exhibit when they're together is refreshingly charming and very realistic. In spite of their lack of finesse, a sensitive, beautiful love story begins to take hold that is destined to pierce the viewer's heart. With the memory of his late wife, Catherine, constantly overshadowing their relationship, Garrett and Theresa continue to draw closer to one another and fall deeper in love. Their story concludes, however, with a surprising twist. Paul Newman, who portrays Garrett's father (Dodge), remains a master of his trade. Coarse, and brutally honest, Dodge's love for his son, and approval of the new woman on the scene, is heartwarming. Newman's character proves to be a necessary anchor for the two lovers. With an exceptional supporting cast who enhance the tale, and beautifully filmed on the coast of Maine, "Message In A Bottle" is a sad love story, but it sends a powerful message to us all. May we never forget it.
