Overview

During her 25th high school class reunion, middle-aged Peggy Sue Kathleen Turner tries to forget her marital problems with husband Charlie Nicolas Cage by renewing old friendships. Wondering if she made the right decisions in her life, Peggy Sue gets a chance to try again when, zapped into a time warp, she finds herself a teenager back in 1960. Armed with foreknowledge the scene in which she tells off her algebra teacher is a particular treat, Peggy Sue gets to retrace the steps leading up to her unhappy marriage to high-school sweetheart Charlie. Will nerdish Richard Norvik Barry Miller, who always carried a torch for Peggy Sue and whom she knows will become a millionaire computer mogul by 1985, win out over the unreliable Charlie this time? A "small" film from the otherwise profligate Francis Ford Coppola, Peggy Sue Got Married possesses an irresistible charm that makes up for its glaring plot deficiencies. The youthful cast is matched in its appeal by such veterans as Leon Ames, Maureen O'Sullivan and John Carradine. And yes, that is Jim Carrey as Walter Getz.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Francis Ford Coppola took a comic break after The Godfather movies and several smaller films to direct this gently manic twist on such 1960s-era nostalgia movies as American Graffitti. Kathleen Turner plays an unhappily married woman who falls asleep at her 25th high school reunion and wakes up to find out she has re-entered her teen years and has a chance to remake her woeful life. It's a madcap time-travel movie in which Coppola seems to be searching for a consistent tone, mixing melodrama and comedy with hints of tragedy. His nephew Nicolas Cage excels in his third role in a Coppola film, on the verge of his breakthrough in Moonstruck. Turner was Oscar-nominated, but the film was a commercial disappointment, and critics seemed uncomfortable to see a director of Coppola's stature fiddling around with such relatively mundane material.

    I Loved It!

    As a child of the 50's and 60's, when rock 'n roll reigned, and being a majorette was cool, this is truly a 'blast from the past'. It's not realistic, certain plot elements make no sense, but what the heck - it's fun!

    I give it 5 stars for the scenes of Turner in her 50's lingerie

    I give it 5 stars for the scenes of Turner in her 50's lingerie (fleeting view of petticoats and bra) and silver lame dress. I think at my age I need an occasional OMG to keep me temporarily alive.

    Great Cast, Great Story

    This is a movie that was better received by the critics than the audiences who went to see it. In fact it is a charming story told by a talented director (Francis Ford Coppola) with a pretty impressive cast from Maureen O'Sullivan near the end of her career to Jim Carry, Helen Hunt and Nicholas Cage near the beginning of their careers. This is a film and cast well worth your time.
