Pauline Collins is the hilariously endearing Shirley Valentine, wisecracking, completely unpredictable English housewife who proves it's never too late to recapture your dreams. Bored with her suburban life, Shirley takes a chance on adventure when a friend invites her on a vacation to Greece. Within no time, she's back to her rebellious teenage roots, saying yes to a wild fling with a handsome rogue (Tom Conti) and the life she's always wanted.

Starts out to slow but when they get to Greece really picks up and very funny. Good for women to see you don't have to sit at home and be a door mat, get up, get out and have fun. You can do it in your own back yard.

Rated 5/10. I found this overall to be quite a sad drama. Not a lot of comedy in it. The monologue got to be a bit much after a while, too.

Delightful movie! An older classic! If I didn't already like Pauline Collins, I certainly would with this movie!

The fashion is funny but the story still is excellent. It remains on point and satisfying to watch. I highly recommend!!

My number one, favourite movie of all time! The best thing about this movie is it does not tell you how it ends and I have noticed that when I am happy, I believe it ends one way and when I am discontented, I feel it ends a different way. First written as a stage play for one woman, it has been translated beautifully into a movie that interacts with many characters. So many of us want to run away and change our life and through Shirley we can.
