Christy rented this. This is the first time I've seen it.
I think everyone knows this is a tear-jerker chick-flick.
The characters, relationships, settings and plot devices were all very believable. All very normal people (okay, one ex-astronaut) dealing with real situations. At least the main characters were. Shirley MacLean's suitors were a little over the top. She and Nicholson were also a bit exaggerated.
There are really three main themes going on in this movie. There's the relationship between a mother and her daughter. There's the first dozen years of the daughter's marraige. And there are bits about the love life of the mother and her relationship with her next-door neighbor. And of course there's the tragedy at the end, though it doesn't get much screen time.
I guess I had too many distractions to get really affected by this movie.
It was generally good, but fairly predictable. On my brother's Total Movie Value Scale, Rental with Dinner.
