Overview

A high-school reunion in a snowy New England town brings together a diverse band of former classmates. They include NYC pianist Willie Timothy Hutton who has found only small success playing night clubs and is considering taking a job as a supply salesman. While in town, Willie, who is having relationship problems with his girlfriend, finds himself becoming friends with 13 year-old Marty Natalie Portman. Then there's Tommy Matt Dillon, the aging jock who though seriously involved with Sharon Mira Sorvino, cannot resist the occasional walk down memory lane by sleeping with the former prom-queen Darian Lauren Holly, who is married but believes that her husband won't find out. Paul Michael Rapaport is dumped by his waitress girlfriend Jan Martha Plimpton, in part because of the swimsuit-clad supermodels plastered all over his walls. Paul then becomes attracted to Andera Uma Thurman, who is visiting her cousin Stinky Pruitt Taylor Vince, a local tavern owner. Also among the group -- Gina Rosie O'Donnell, who fancies herself a feminist counselor and who, in one of the film's highlights, delivers a poignant rant against how magazines present unrealistic images of women.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Ted Demme's schmaltzy buddy romance picture amasses some good Hollywood faces, new and old. From the tender-aged teen sensation Natalie Portman to resident weirdo David Arquette to Hollywood vets Matt Dillon, Timothy Hutton, and Uma Thurman, the strength of this film is its cast -- though the performances themselves are often overwrought and sometimes exceedingly corny. Rosie O'Donnell's loudmouth busybody and Michael Rappaport's bumbling wiseacre practically steal the show. Demme borrows touches from Barry Levinson's Diner but also gives a contemporary polish to the subject matter. This film gets very few high marks for originality and substance, but it doesn't really garner any low ones either. On the whole, it's a playful piece of lighthearted fodder.

    Wonderful and heart warming

    This is a wonderful movie about small town friends and life dreams. Lots of laughs but also very touching and poignant. If you grew up in a small town or even a medium sized town you'll definitely be able to relate.

    A Must See

    This is a great movie because of each character has a personality flaw that makes them that much more appealing to the audience. They are real people with real problems. Natalie Portman did an amazing job as Marty. Everyone falls in love with her because as she put it ''I'm an old soul.'' No man can resist her. I also love the character Andera. She is only in the film for a short time but she makes a huge impact on the males of the movie that they all want to be with her. Whether it is because of her looks of her personality she is a wonderful character. All in all it is a great movie and i recommend it to everyone.

    Wonderfully Nostalgic

    This is a wonderfully nostalgic movie that anyone who had a tight-nit group in high school or had a time of life crisis can relate. The actors are many and the characters diverse. It is funny, witty, poignant, at times dark but always interesting with several story lines that are blended together smoothly and not in a jerking way many movies with mutiple story lines display. Save this one for a rainy day as it deserves your undivided attention.
