To me this movie is a classic. There hasn't been one time when it was on TV and I didn't stop whatever I was doing to watch it. It is about a guy that goes back home for his 10 year high school reunion and finds most of his old friends to be the same as they were in school. Being home makes him question his own life and if he's with the right person. Sounds like a simple story but there is something about it that makes it great.
This movie always stirs up lots of emotion in me. I think it is very well done and the actors are great. It will make you think of high school and your old friends. Great movie. Out of print so if you want a copy you better find it on eBay. Trust me, I looked for years and finally got one here.
Bottom line, one of my favorite movies of all time!
I love this movie! Especially the cast. I can't say enough good things about it. After watching it on T.V. this past summer, I decided to buy a copy of my own. I found it especially refreshing to see the setting in a small town in Massachusetts in the winter time with plenty of ice and snow. It was very refreshing and relaxing when my temperatures outside were in the 100's!
I purchased a used copy of this movie because I could not find a new one at the moment and I wanted it right then! However, I'm very pleased with my used copy. No scratches or bad spots and I've watched at about 6 times!
This is a wonderful, rather artistic movie about some high school friends coming of age during a reunion. Some of them FINALLY have to grow up. But of course, there are bumps in the road.
I've loved this movie for years and am now very happy to own it on DVD. Highly recommend!
I'm bidding on it now and have seen it on cable several times. It's one of my favorites...great character development...a must see for me. Natalie Portman is great in this! Could be one of Matt Dillons best rolls. Timothy Hutton is better in this than anything else I've seen him in. In short, the cast is GREAT! Even minor characters remain in your brain when the movie is over. If you're into major action flicks...forget this...it's a thinking persons film, entertaining yet thought provoking.
A young Natalie Portman is excellent in this movie as a 13 year old neighbor of Timothy Huttons family, who consists of his younger brother & widowed father. Hutton goes home for his HS reunion. A good comedy that shows the transition & pangs of leaving the carefree days of youth behind, settling down, living with decisions & being an adult.
This movie has a great cast. The topics explored by the characters touch on growing up, relationships, and what could be and what is It touches on who we were once and who we are now. Natalie Potman, Matt Dillion and Uma Thurman are just a few of my favorite cast members in this movie.
i think this movie hits home for a lot of men in there mid 30's! awsome movie! it keeps it real and reminds me of a lot of times in our lives and the experiences we all go through at different points in our life. characters are questioning what they are doing in their life just as we do in real life.
Simple story with amazing characters. Natalie Portman shows that she truly is destined for an incredible future. The soundtrack is worth a listen as well.
This all star cast blend terrific. Their personal struggles and tons of humor. I beleive this film is totally under rated. Excellent movie.
I don't like Rosie. But this is a pretty good movie. I actually thought it was decent despite being another chick flick. It wasn't so bad. At least I could stay awake through it to please the ol lady lol
