Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Fatally earthbound. – USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Travolta's charismatic presence is the only positive element in Nora Ephron's flawed romantic fable marred by rough narrative spots and scattered direction, again showing that Ephron lacks the most basic technical skills. – Emanuel Levy, Variety, Feb 23, 2012

Keep coming back

Michael, released in 1996 is fun soulful movie. I continue to quote lines and sing songs that I associate with this enduring piece of cinema. Well worth watching or rewatching!

Simple - Good - Enjoyable

Forget the critics, this is a warm and simple picture with a unique plot that weaves itself well. Top-notch writing and acting make it worthwhile.

Great fun

Travolta et al obviously enjoyed making this. Well directed comedy with something for everyone. A nice little classic
