:The casting of Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr was a fantastic idea of director Leo McCarey. Not only did he direct the film but he wrote the screenplay with Delmar Daves. Cary Grant plays a playboy named Nick Ferrante. He is already engaged to marry, but when he sees Deborah Kerr as Terry McKay, she changes his mind. Two actors could not look any more in love than Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. They look in love, act in love, and build a relationship we the viewer roots for. See if you don't find them irresistible yourselves. I think your in for one of the best love stories on film!

A truly endearing classic from McCarey with Grant and Kerr at their best.

One of my favourites. Great dialogue and beautiful settings. Two beautiful actors together. Only for the true romantic.

This one is supposed to be a classic tale of timeless love or some such nonsense? I found it to be tedious and pokily paced with a dull, drab, who cares? script. Just awful! Robert Q. (I wonder what the Q is for?)Lewis should have been the tip off. Maybe this movie appeals to some specialized audience, professional virgins or interior decorators or the like. I kept flicking the time remaining button but finally had to deep six it with 30 minutes to go. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr must really have needed the money or maybe were being punished? If that is the case then I know exactly how they felt. Make like the luxurious ocean liner and give this turkey a wide berth!

It's worth watching this and following it up with "Sleepless in Seattle". You'll appreciate both films more it you do.

I prefer the original Love Affair (1939). The lines and acting seemed to flow more easily. I highly recommend watching the original if you did or didn't enjoy An Affair to Remember. They were both directed by Leo McCarey.

You watch this movie for two reasons: Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. The first half is rather witty; the second half devolves into a heavy duty tear jerker. But the two stars make the movie worthwhile.

I really enjoyed this - it was much funnier than I expected, and much less melodramatic. It has aged well.

This is one of my favorite love story movies. Along the same lines as The Notebook, where you root for the two to be together as they face obstacles that keep them apart.

Great movie where two people meet on a ship and fall in love. It's a bit sad though.
