"Slightly over sentimental, but still brilliant after all these years. I'm from the UK so have no real insight into what other people are arguing about, but I thought the period of American history covered in the film was conveyed really well. The film does not contain the blank or cruel cynicism that seems to substitute as a moral compass for movie makers nowadays. What it does contain is tear jerking romance, exciting action scenes, comedy and deep insight into the human condition. Not stupid at all."
