I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, even though it is pretty much a classic from the 80’s that managed at the time to win 5 Academy Awards including the Best Picture Academy Award, to be honest, I don't think the whole thing did grow old very well, I’m afraid. Still, I have to admit that it is sti... read more

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, even though it is pretty much a classic from the 80’s that managed at the time to win 5 Academy Awards including the Best Picture Academy Award, to be honest, I don't think the whole thing did grow old very well, I’m afraid. Still, I have to admit that it is still a decent watch, above all, because pretty much all the characters involved were so flawed and messed-up and thanks to some really solid performances from the whole cast involved. Above all, something that really prevented this movie from getting a higher rating from me was this terrible cheesy 80's soundtrack. Another thing that bothered me was how they added a lethal disease in the 3rd act jus” read more

" Notes: Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Indeed, it is pretty much a classic from the 80’s and it managed at the time to win 5 Academy Awards including the Best Picture Academy Award. Well, to be honest, even though it turned out to be a decent watch, I can’t say it really blew me away though and I think the whole thing didn’t grow old very well, I’m afraid. For example, something that bothered was the terrible soundtrack"

" The Ups: Realistic. Funny everytime Jack Nicholson is around. Believable development. The Downs: Many tragi-comedies has repeated this formula to death since. Has a "telemovie of the week" feel over it with only a better budget than usual. "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2015 (34 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 11min. First Viewing The acting is great, and the story occasionally contains some blistering, genuine emotion, but too much of the movie felt unfocused and melodramatic for me to be truly taken with it. The screenplay is smart and quite witty, but the tone of it (lighter comedy one scene shifts to hard drama the next) gave me whiplash. Still, it's pretty solid; the most that you can ask of an 80s movie."
