5.0 out of 5 stars First Hugh Grant movie I ever saw! July 8, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When I first saw this movie, it was on a TV movie of the week, I believe on a Sunday night. I did not get in on the names of who was in it, and I wondered who that great looking, gorgeous man was who played Lucias. Well, many years later I'm watching another movie with this great looking, gorgeous man in it and find out his name is Hugh Grant. The man is a great actor.
The story is a romance set back in the days of King Charles II of England. Hugh Grant was, of course, the hero of the story. The heroine of the story, I cannot remember her real name, played Panthea Vine, the damsel in distress, who is saved by the highwayman (Hugh Grant). He takes her back to her home after killing the man who forced her to marry him. He knew the way to her home without her telling him. She later realizes this must be her cousin Lucias who is suspected of being the legendary "Silver Blade".
This movie has its group of meanies, too. Emma Samms is a spoiled, egotistical, but beautiful woman who wants Lucias. He turns her down right away, which really ticks her off. Another meanie is Oliver Reed who plays Cromwell, a well known buzzard back in that time in history.
My brother thought he wasn't going to like this movie, but when he got into it he couldn't leave it. He jumped right up out of his seat when he thought the jailers were going to chop of Panthea's head with an ax.
This is a great movie and everyone who loves romance should get it. By the way, did I tell you it is based on a Barbara Cartland novel? The same Barbara Cartland who has written over 600 romance novels.

Format:VHS Tape
This wonderful '80's cheesfest features Emma Samms, Lysette Anthony, and Hugh Grant, speaking in a very weird, strangled manner that is apparently meant to be sexy.

Based on a novel by the immortal Barbara Cartland, the story follows the insipid adventures of the equally insipid Panthea Vine, orphaned heiress and milk sop extraordinaire. We watch as she endures a VERY quick marriage to an evil tax collector (about half hour before he is fortuitously disposed of), meets the hunky, Robin Hood-esque Silver Blade ("Thank you, thank you, Silver Blade!"), prances around the court of King Charles II, makes a powerful enemy (Samms, paying the rent), solves a family mystery and finally winds up fending for her life while being tried for treason.

It's all very silly, and highly entertaining if you're in the proper frame of mind. Other reviewers mention the hammy acting and ridiculous dialogue, but for me that's part of the fun. Rent it if you like costume romances, enjoy laughing at bad movies, or want to feel superior to the bunch of hapless Hollywood stars forced to say things like "My lord Chancellor is like all you men, simply a big belly surrounded by self-esteem!"

If you do see it, watch for the moment when Silver Blade challenges Panthea's husband to a duel. "But he's one of best swordsmen in England!" she cries. "I know that," he replies after a decidedly uncomfortable pause. Priceless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Leave this Lady on the Highway January 31, 2000
By icefox
Format:DVD
This movie was one huge disappointment from beginning to end.
Firstly, I bought the DVD. Big mistake. The transfer was by far the worst I've ever seen and I've watched hundreds of DVDs. It actually looked worse than what I can get when taping something off of regular network television using the EP setting on my VCR. Not only was the whole thing blurry beyond belief, several scenes shake like crazy and through the middle of many of the scenes there were video tracking lines like you'd see on a over used low grade VHS tape. Which is what this transfer was probably taken from. The low list price might have prepared me for the lack of quality of the menu, but for it to be of a better image quality than the movie itself was a bit of a surprise.
Secondly, the movie itself was awful. I love a good period piece movie and I really wanted to like this one despite my misgivings as to where it got it's plot line (although I like an occasional historical romance book, I'm not a fan of Cartland). But there was just nothing to like here. The story was ridiculous, the dialog was atrocious and the acting was just plain bad. Something that I'm at a loss to explain with all the known talent that was in this movie. I'm sure I can't imagine what the director must have been doing to get such a lousy end product.
At first I wanted to give this movie/DVD zero stars, but since I could only go as low as one star I did manage to find one good thing to justify that star. The costumes were wonderful.
Fair warning: If you're thinking about seeing this movie solely because you're a fan of Hugh Grant, you can forget it. He barely strings 10 words together in two scenes and two words together in 10 other scenes. He's just not the major character in this movie that he's made out to be by the cover of the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Romance! June 3, 2009
Format:DVD
The Lady and the Highwayman is the movie that introduced Hugh Grant to me. I know he was in other stuff before, but this was where I saw him the first time. I absolutely fell in love with him. This movie is one of those swashbuckling kind of stories about a rich man (Hugh Grant) who falls in love with a rich woman; and there's a mean, selfish woman (Emma Samms), as well as Oliver Cromwell (Oliver Reed) trying to break up the two young lovers, as well as kill the young rich woman. Oh, what a tangled web is weaved! Anyway, it's one of those "happily ever after" scenarios and I highly recommend it for all those who love a good love story, as well as those who love Hugh Grant.

I might have enjoyed watching this, in all it's B movie splendor, if it was even watchable. The quality of the playback is terrible.... Read more

Cartland wrote the book, but this film could not hold a candle to her books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheesetastical goodness!
This movie is so hilarious and cheesey that it's hard not to like it. I usually play it when I have trouble sleeping and let it play all night.

4.0 out of 5 stars TV style photography and script. Worth watching
Early Hugh Grant acting. But if you like him it is good entertainment. Nice scenery of the British country side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy picture.
It has Hugh Grant and that's a reason to see it. It was the quality of the film itself that made it a three. Unfortunately, I ordered it too before watching it. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars UGH!
One of the worst Hugh Grant movies ever made! The whole movie is reminiscent of the 1920's silent movies where nothing important happens and there is a great deal of over acting. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Dear God, was that Hugh Grant?
A towering mountain of cheez-wiz, (the cheese food product not even real cheese). It's dreadful but somehow not so bad in a funny way to be a cult classic in the making. Read more
