    Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman) directs the screen adaptation of Terence McNally's play Frankie and Johnny at the Clair de Lune, the story of a short-order cook (Al Pacino) who drives a waitress (Michelle Pfeiffer) crazy with his adamant courtship and mixed messages. The film is okay and not much more than that, the major stumbling block being Marshall's failure to scrub away enough star veneer on Pacino and Pfeiffer to accept them as minimum-wage drones with nowhere to go but toward each other....

                This movie was a break from previous Kitano fare in that it features no gangsters. Instead it presents a simple story about a deaf garbage collector, played by Claude Maki, who is determined to learn how to surf, and does so almost at the expense of the girl he loves. Kitano's more delicate, romantic side came to the fore here, along with his trademark deadpan approach.
