Cyrano De Bergerac was one of those figures who transcended their own life to become a legend. In his case, he became a legend about a big nose, and a big personality. But he also became a legend - thanks to the famous play written in by Edmond Rostand - that makes us think about the nature of beauty, and how we find it. Is it in the words we speak, or in the prettiness of our smiles? What is it we most desire, in a partner and for ourselves: good looks, or that indefinable quality known as a great personality? It's a subject that has an uneasy relationship with cinema. Film often relies fairly heavily on the appeal of the pretty face to sell tickets, and is often about face value, and instantly liking what we see.
Janeane Garofalo in this movie, like Sandra Bullock in "While You Were Sleeping," is so likable, so sympathetic, so revealing of her character's doubts and desires, that she carries us headlong into the story. Garofalo plays Abby, a veterinarian who gives advice to pet owners over a talk radio station in Santa Monica, Calif. Her callers have the sorts of problems I suspect all pet owners secretly have. One is concerned about a cat, which won't stop licking its owner's face. Another has depressed fish.
