File:Roxanne Cover 7595.jpg

Not your average romantic comedy, this remake of Cyrano de Bergerac tells the story of C.D. "Charlie" Bales (Steve Martin), the long-nosed fire chief of a small quirky town and Roxanne Kowalski (Daryl Hannah), a visiting astronomy student. Bales, in love with Roxanne from the start but violently self-conscious about his schnozz, settles for helping a handsome but ditzy fireman woo her. The results are predictable, if you know the story, but the humor surrounding the town and C.D.'s nose set the movie apart.


Tropes used in Roxanne include:

 Roxanne: (Naming the comet she discovered) "Comet Kowalski."

C.D.: "Kowalski"? Why? You've got a chance to give it a beautiful name!"

Roxanne: "That's my name."

C.D.: "It is? Roxanne Kowalski? Oh, heh-heh... sorry."
