A very good movie

Back in the 80’s, Lawrence Kasdan was really on fire. Not only he wrote some of the biggest box-office successes of the time (‘Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back’, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, ‘Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi’) , he managed also to launch a very successful directing career as well. Unfortunately, later on, his movies were honestly not that good a... read more

Description: Lawrence Kasdan's 1983 big-budget variation on John Sayles's The Return of the Secaucus Seven finds a cluster of old college radicals--who have since gone on to sundry professions and various degrees of materialism--reuniting over the death of a friend. Both playful and thoughtful, the film represents Kasdan (Body Heat) at his most as ... (more)

A very good movie

“Back in the 80’s, Lawrence Kasdan was really on fire. Not only he wrote some of the biggest box-office successes of the time (‘Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back’, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, ‘Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi’) , he managed also to launch a very successful directing career as well. Unfortunately, later on, his movies were honestly not that good and it has been at least 20 years since he has written or directed something really worthwhile. Anyway, this movie was his second directing effort and, even though it is nowadays pretty much forgotten, it was really critically heralded when it was released. Indeed, there was quite an impressive cast (Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Meg Tilly) and they all delive” read more

Director's Cut:Actors Cut From Movies (15 movies items)

"Kevin Costner Kevin Costner was set to have his big break in "The Big Chill," but his role was done away with in post-production. In the end, he only appeared as a corpse at the beginning of the film."

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Flashback scenes with Kevin Costner as Alex were filmed, but cut. He is still visible as the body being dressed at the beginning of the film. The name of Harold's "Running Dog" shoe-store chain is a play on the Maoist phrase, "the running dogs of capitalism". At least twice during the movie we can see an octopus on a TV screen in the house. Of course an octopus has eight legs, and there are eight intertwined friends in the film (counting their friend Alex, who we barely see). "
