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.
