Although this is a chick flick, it's enjoyable. Only complaint I have is I am tired a having homosexuality shoved down my throat. It may be a way of life that I have to live with. But I don't need to be reminded and forced to assume that it's OK by the movie industry. Without that part, this movie would be a Must See.

Diane Lane gave a wonderful performance in "Under the Tuscan Sun." A romantic comedy about a writer who moves to Tuscany to seek a better life. The film started out dull, but after Lane had bought her hometo live among the Italian residents, the magic took over as well. I know it's not much of a movie, but Lane's performance and appeal had won me over. In addition, check out the beauty of Tuscany. It is beautiful. Don't be too surprise that this film will help improve the Italian tourist business.

I absolutely loved this movie! It a warm hearted flick that's also very real in terms of love and loss. The characters are all well developed and endearing. The setting is beautiful and enchanting. Definitely not another chick flick!

Heartwarming & so true to life and the scenery was outstanding.

While this can definitely be classified as a "chick-flick" by many, I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Rather than following the tried and true formula of many romantic comedies, it takes a few turns which make it enjoyable. The relationship between the lead character and the realtor of the villa she buys is a mature and intelligent one instead of one that ranks placement in a romance novel.

The Italian scenery and culture is a character in and of itself, lending most of the appeal of the movie. If not for the cultural richness brought on by the location and the people, this would not have been as successful. Let's just say, "Under the Atlanta Sun" would not have done as well...

This is a great date movie, but probably not worth owning for multiple viewings. The extras on the DVD are very few, but still worth viewing if you rent it.
