‘Roxanne’ Movie Summary
The Steve Martin-written “Roxanne” is a romantic-comedy remake of the French classic “Cyrano de Bergerac” story. Steve Martin plays Charlie “C.D.” Bales, the small town fire chief that not only has a huge heart and a huge IQ, but a nose the size of Rhode Island. When any bully makes fun of him, CD shows them a huge right hook to defend himself.
Although CD is a Renaissance man to end the Renaissance, he is overlooked in the game of love by all women leading him to become the town’s real-life selfless superhero, albeit a celibate and lonely one. His volunteer fire department is stuffed full of inept town characters who not only are unable to put out fires they start themselves inside the fire station, they also set themselves on fire when attempting to put those same fires out.
CD’s best friend, Dixie, has rented a large home to a gorgeous rocket scientist/astronomer named Roxanne, played by the dazzling Daryl Hannah. CD comes to the heroic and acrobatic aid of Roxanne and he is immediately smitten by her very obvious charms on full display. At the local bar, CD is challenged to a fight by a thug who makes fun of his huge nose in front of all CD’s friends. But instead of fighting him, CD chooses to insult the bully by telling 20-something jokes about HIS nose.read full summary
