I didn't see this movie until I was well into my twenties, and of course I'd seen it parodied a million times by then, I'd heard people talk and talk about what a great movie it was. But this is one of those movies that live up to the hype. Even though pop culture had taught me everything there was to know about this movie, I was still moved by it, I was still impressed. I understand why it's such a classic. Masterful movie.

Fantastic! All the cast gives an amazing performance and the movie holds up even after all the hype that certainly reached you way before seeing it. Bogart was born to play Rick Blaine.
