Storyline

A modernisation of Edmond Rostands "Cyrano De Bergerac". C.D. Bales is a fire chief, who just happens to have an enormous nose. He hires a new fire-fighter, Chris, who is handsome, and knows his hoses, but is useless when it comes to women. Roxanne is an astronomer who has just arrived in town. She catches the eye of Chris, and he asks C.D. to help him woo her. Little does Chris know that C.D. is mad about Roxanne, but hasn't found the right way to tell her - yet.

The man with the Big Nose can be funny04 January 2012

Of course if you can get hold of Cyrano de Bergerac with Gerard Depardieu it is better, but this does pretty well. As an adaptation of a great play and film, bringing it into the present and setting in in an uptight Aspen like town with a fire department, is quite a clever concept. largely it... more

Not for everyone.27 September 2011

This film is a hard sale. Even in it's day it was hard to please everyone, but it will certainly satisfy the viewer who searches for a witty adaptation of a classic, done in a light and romantic way. It is a film that is well produced, well acted, nicely scripted and with much attention to... more

Witty!08 February 2011

Martin's character has an edge that he normally just does not attempt to attain. The dialog is a bit trite at times, but standing in Charlie Bales's shoes may make anyone a little tense. This is by far one of Martin's best performances, and in my opinion, his best work thus far.
