Casablanca is pretty much a perfect movie. Action, romance, comedy, gambling, violence, betrayal, lust, tough guys, handsome heroes, beautiful women, Nazi goons, weirdos, freaks, sleazebags, amazing music, and never a dull moment. What more could you want? This movie should be on everybody's bucket list.

Greatest movie of all time. Best actors and scripts. Best one liners of all time. It has faith love redemption romance patriotism and salvation. A great movie for valentines day with your soulmate.

I must be the only human in the entire world who doesn't like Casablanca.
Maybe all the parodying like "Play it again, Sam" or "Hill of beans" inappropriately tickles my funny bone. Bogart's his usual tough guy screen persona but his attempt as love-struck old Romeo seems ludicrous to me.

Don't miss the special features, especially the Bugs Bunny cartoon take-off, "Carrotblanca"

One of my favorite movies! Torn between her husband and her great love, Rick, Ingrid Bergman's Ilsa brings the best in both.

This movie is a much watch. Yes it is black and white, and yes it does reflect a very out-dated view of the men and women; still beautiful and with more humour and politics than its portrayal as just a romance would have you believe.

I think this is the first item I rated that is even remotely near Naturalist's rating...

...But, If we are going by the movie's rating than Casablanca is actually number 33, not 5. http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

But naturalist got it right that "Casablanca" is one of the greatest films. Everything from the cinematography to the acting and close up shots on the character's emotion is absolutely superb. Awesome film, I cannot express that enough. Must watch!

EDIT: I love how naturalist just deleted their comment

A romanticized political allegory, CASABLANCA stood out as a film about love and sacrifice during wartime. Some classic films underwhelm me, like CITIZEN KANE, but the message, tone, and performances in CASABLANCA have aged into a timeless gem. It's even been injected with a few warm chuckles. A late-in-the-game American call-to-arms, this film is now remembered free of its political wartime context and seen as a tragic romance instead. Watch it however you please. Short and sweet and surprisingly complex, CASABLANCA is a great tale, one I'd recommend.

A beautiful classic romance and good old fashion action type movie. Bravo 5 stars!

I have seen this film at least three times, and it gets better with each viewing. Terrific cast, terrific script, a magnificent movie! Deservedly called a classic.

Rick: My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.
Captain Renault: The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

Rick: "...Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life." Ilsa: "But what about us?" Rick: "We'll always have Paris. We didn't have, we... we lost it until you came to Casablanca. We got it back last night..."

Casablanca: easy to enter, but much harder to leave, especially if your name is on the Nazis' most-wanted list. Atop that list is Czeck Resistance leader Victor Laszlo, whose only hope is Rick Blaine, a cynical American who sticks his neck out for no one...especially Victor's wife Ilsa, the ex-lover who broke his heart. So when Ilsa offers herself in exchange for Laszlo's safe transport out of the country, the bitter Rick must decide what's more important - his own happiness or the countless lives that hang in the balance.
