Decent, and holds up well over time, but nothing special.

A very special film. Julie Walters is amazing as is Michael Caine (someone mentioned Michael Keaton in error.) Well worth watching. 5 STARS!!

A 1983 variation of the Pygmalion story, without the usual romantic ending. The well-written script and fabulous acting by Julie Walters and Michael Caine make this a pleasure to watch.

Does a comedy have to have a nerd in it? Educating Rita answers the question, because this is sophisicated comedy and it is a joy to watch. Julie Walters is not a household name, but this part was made for her. Michael Keaton plays her professor to a T. Very inspiring and fun the whole way!

I finally watched this classic - what fun! Great acting and a good script that does not follow any formula. My kind of movie.

Predictable fantasy but easy entertainment. Glad no syrupy romance is involved.
