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.
