This review is from: Peggy Sue Got Married (DVD) I loved this blast from the past. Nicholas Cage is great in this movie and I watched it twice in a row. Great for something to do.
The strongest point of this film is undeniably its beautiful hauntingtheme tune which I went out and bought on cd the moment I heard it. Iremember seeing this film in 1986, in Versailles and the outsidetemperature was -18Â°C. For this reason, this film is forever associatedwith cold. I was expecting a far better story and remain smitten withemotion when 1) Peggy Sue hears her grandma's voice on the telephoneand almost faints and 2) when she actually travels to see hergrandparents, towards the end of the film. These emotional momentsapart, and apart from the general idea of travelling back in time whichhas always excited me, I found the film to be a bit of adisappointment. True, the 1960's dresses and automobiles are fun towatch. But Nicolas Cage's character is absolutely pathetic and annoyedme withing the first fifteen minutes. I don't like the actor at thebest of times but in this film it was a nightmare every time I saw himappear. Unfortunate, really, as he is one of the main characters in thefilm. I also had a slight, though perceivable prejudice againstKathleen Turner as I always remember her as the bitter, evil-faced wifein War of the Roses. So basically none of the 2 main protagonists aremy favourites and apart from that there are passages in the film whichare frankly chatty and boring. I did enjoy Peggy Sue's short sceneswith the scientist when she was speaking of the future but there againI got annoyed when she spent time with some freaked-out left-wing hippywho was even worse to listen to than Nicolas Cage. Only the scenes withher mum and dad provided some relief but they were rather flat,dialogue-wise, and Cage inevitably turns up to spoil things. I thoughtwith such a brilliant idea and brilliant music, what a waste of a film.Also I cannot fathom how Peggy Sue was perceived by her family - wasshe seen by them as a 20 year old or a 45 year old. And if she was seenas a 20 year old, there is duplication in the time frame which meansfor each day in the film she lived the same day twice ! It's totallyillogical and frustrating for a time travel lover like me. I havewatched the film several times since 1986 and do have it on DVD, hopingthat each new viewing will make me like it more but alas I always endup liking the same parts plus the music but remaining frustrated withthe general body of the film. The only way out of this frustration isto imagine the whole episode as a dream ( dreams don't have to belogical ) and to scrap the time-travel thing completely.
Wow this is an amazing movie! I saw this at Best Buy in the COMEDY section! This can not be a comedy. Whoever put that there probably has never seen this movie before. I do agree it does look a lot like a comedy movie but it sure a heck isnt! I got this movie from amazon for Jim Carrey. But he was hardly in it that is my only complaint. When I put this movie in I thought that I was going to see an enjoyable Romantic Comedy. But I didnt I saw something better. This movie is a drama nthere is no question about that. But there are some funny moments here and there but I mean Forest Gump was funnier than this! Kathleen Turner was very good in this. Nicholas Cag was o.k. What is wrong with his voice?! Its all messed up it sounds like he has a stuffy nose the whole movie! This is one of the best movies that I have ever seen! HIghly reccomended! I am going to watch it tommorow!
Kathleen Turner was probably a tad old for this role, but she did a great job. What a fun and entertaining movie.
One of Coppola's least overbearing films, but not overwhelmingly good.
I rather enjoyed this movie seeing two later to be famous actors namedNicholas Cage and Jim Carrey. This is a comedic reflection of what itmight be like to return to high school after twenty-five years. With abrilliant performance by the beautiful Kathleen Turner, a total babe.The movie started a little slowly, but quickly picked up the pace. Theirony of the movie is when Peggy Sue decided after the going back intoher past that she should not have ever married her high schoolsweetheart (Cage). Which seems to be pretty good advice these days. Thetension between the two main characters was at times pathetic andpulling. There were times when I wanted to just yell and say "quit yourbloody whining you stupid git" to Cage's character. My favourite partof the movie is where Katheleen Turner's character "Peggy Sue", whotravel back into her past gives to Cage's character the lyrics toacclaimed song "She Love You" by the Beatles whereby he chooses tochange the "Yeahs" to "Oohs" is too hilarious. That's like changing theRolling Stones song lyric "Jumpin' Jack Flash to really passed somegas." From Liverpool I rated this movie an eight because it is a funmovie whilst eating ice cream.
This review is from: Peggy Sue Got Married (DVD) A teenage fantasy for sure. I would go to more class reunions if they were like this.A fun movie.
Would definitely purchase more movies from this seller! I hadn't seen this movie since I was a little girl, and watching it brought back some good little memories!
Coppola seemed out of his element in this kind of film.Either his touch was lost, or the project was too much of a departure fromhis usual work, but it seems to me he injected way too much laughing gas onthe set during the making of the film.I have never wanted to throw a videocassette across the room farther than I did this one, especially when Cagewas on the screen. This film was made when the boy couldn't act. Turner isokay in her role, but the script has her giggle and goo-goo and ga-ga and itmade me want to "gag...gag some more."
This is a captivating fantasy, with one of the best performances of the80's: Kathleen Turner is a delight.Who wouldn't want to go back to his teenage years armed with knowledge ofthe future? Now Peggy Sue is able to recognize the turning points in herlife and, this time, she has the opportunity to make differentchoices.The film's one minus is Nicolas Cage's overacting. But to his credit,there's something about his moony, goofy mugging in the "Do-Wop" sectionthat sum up the era's Fabian-Avalon notion of a teen idol. And the scriptis excellent at revealing the self-absorption of someone his age and sex.He never understands Peggy Sue's point of view.Production values are outstanding, with a real feeling for theperiod.I'll watch "Peggy Sue" again just to hear: "Dad?? You bought anEdsel??!!"
This movie is definitely in my top ten. One reason is Kathleen Turner'sacting. She does a wonderful job throughout the movie, even though she maylook older than a teenager when she goes back in time. (However, have younoticed how teenagers in high school through the years look younger andyounger? My mom's high school yearbook appears to be filled with 30 yearolds.) Another reason I love the movie is that it makes my brain ponder onwhat I would do if I could go back to high school. Peggy revisiting heryoung mother, seeing her baby sister, and being able to see her grandparentsagain one last time is just a beautiful thing in itself. I guess I justlike reminiscing about my childhood, which is probably why I like thismovie. (Even though I'm a child of the 80's.) Very few things bother me inthis movie. And no, it's not Nicolas Cage's accent! That didn't bother methat much. :) It was the fact that Peggy's son Scott is not seen in themovie, but is mentioned several times by Peggy and a character for ScottBodell is in the credits at the end of the movie. Also, at the reunion,Rosalee, the girl in the wheelchair responsible for inviting people to thereunion and close friend of Peggy's, is also not seen in the time travelback scenes. I wish the DVD had some deleted scenes that may explain thesedisappearances. But to end this review on a good note, the soundtrack wassuperb as well! The music is just beautiful and is one of my favorite moviescores to date. Way to go John Barry! I recommend this to anyone whothinks about going to a high school reunion or wishes they could go back intime to do some things differently.
Peggy Sue Got Married starring Kathleen Turner is a film I absolutely loved as a young girl. Turner is flawless and so vulnerable as the title character, no one else could have pulled off such a real and touching performance. Nicholas Cage is superb as well, his voice is so funny in this one, you have to hear to believe it. This sweet romantic drama was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and look for his real-life daughter Sofia Coppola as Turner's younger sister. This film is a must-have, you will enjoy it.
I consider Peggy Sue Got Married as one of the all time great movies.Kathleen Turner and Nicholas Cage both do a superb job in this one. TheOrchestra Music, I believe was by John Barry was also wonderful.Reminded me of the kind of great music in "Out of Africa" and even aone song in "Doc Hollywood". It really moves you and you'll neverforget where you first heard the songs. The main theme is "Peggy Sue'sHomecoming", or is it "Somewhere in Time" by John Barry; its one or theother, for sure . I wish that Hollywood would bring out more shows likethis...some romance, nostalgia, no real violence, no swearing AND yetit was a hit! Wonderful! I must admit that I'm a nostalgia fan andmovies like this one, all the back to the future shows have mefascinated. Perhaps it's because we often find ourselves daydreaming ofthe good old days and simpler times...far removed from the hectic paceof today. Heck, I even love watching reruns of the Waltons! I wouldhighly recommend this movie to everyone...cozy up to your TV with agood friend, make some popcorn, put a fire on and ENJOY! How couldanyone NOT love this movie!
This review is from: Peggy Sue Got Married (DVD) This is a GREAT movie that the whole family can watch and enjoy. It is an older movie, so it actually has a real vocabulary, INSTEAD of a bunch of foul language! Anyone who grew up in the 50's,60's will find it especially endearing. Seeing all the old cars, the way people lived back then, etc...There are a few great lessons of life in this Movie.
Peggy Sue got Married, is a great movie, as long as you take it for what it is. It's not a heavy movie, but's it well though out, smart, charming and a pleasure to watch. I loved it, and I think Kathleen Turner was rad* I would love to go throughhigh school as peggy Sue re-lived it.
Fans of the time traveler genre and the teen comedy might enjoy thisCopola-directed comedy. Kathleen Turner plays a middle-aged newlydivorced mother attending her high school Reunion. After an unexpectedcollapse, she wakes up in the 1960s and is teenage Peggy Sue all overagain, except that she knows everything that she knew in the future.What at first seems like an incredibly awkward dream (especially if youhave to repeat all of the silliness of your high school years), turnsout to be much more. She solicits the help of high school brain,Richard (Barry Miller) to help find a way to get her back. In themeantime, her reunion with the past allows her to change her future.(Yeah, one of those...).Though often a hilarious comedy, it may be one well suited for olderaudiences, since the tackiness of both the middle-age attendees oftheir 1980s high school reunion and their 1960s teenage counterpartsmay seem cheesy to your modern teenager (which will, probably, in turnseem cheesy to future generations). But, still, the movie offers goodlaughs mostly from Turner. Look for a very young Sophia Copola as PeggySue's younger sister, in addition to many familiar and somethen-unfamiliar faces (Jim Carrey) in supporting roles.
A sweet, little time travel comedy/romance. Kathleen Turner plays awoman attending her 25th high school reunion. She's embarrassed at justhaving divorced her high school sweetheart (Nicolas Cage), but she goesthrough with it anyway. While at the reunion, she faints and awakes in1961, just before she turned 18. She has fun revisiting the timeperiod, and decides to take things a different way, knowing that herrelationship with Cage is due to fail. This film is messy as Hell. Thescript feels sloppy and the performances are all over the place.Nicolas Cage is at his most Nicolas Cagey - if you think he only gotweird lately, well, he didn't. Turner really isn't very good at all(somehow she got an Oscar nomination - I don't get it). Everyone elseis basically fine, but when your two lead performances are this bad,you can't expect the final results to be that good. Thankfully, themovie has a sweetness to it that's often endearing, even when it's notbeing particularly good. There are some very funny moments, too.Nicolas Cage talking about his "whang" (there's no "h" in that word,Nic) has to be one of the funniest lines I've ever heard.
Kathleen Turner is great in this movie, she more or less pulls off her taskand is very believable as the teenager who gets to relive and, to somepoint, change and correct her past. Francis Ford Coppola knows exactly whereto draw the fine line between heart warming and pathetic and does so withgreat artistic knowledge and taste. This movie is filled with memorablequotes, like "No more jello for me, mom!" and is altogether veryfunny.Great performances from a pile of familiar faces, Nicholas Cage isirritating at first, but is likeable at the end. A great score, a great andheart warming story, solid acting and nostalgia make this movie more thanworth a second viewing. 8/10
This review is from: Peggy Sue Got Married (DVD) We wore out our VHS copy so we ordered in DVD. Great movie, we watch it every few months. If you've never seen it, rent it, then you'll buy it.
Peggy Sue Got Married is one of Francis Coppola's better projects and I came away from the film wishing I had lived through the 1960's.The big question is "what if" we could go back in time and have a chance to make our decisions over again. Would we choose to do things the same way or differently? Even though Peggy Sue wants to change things, she finds that she can't (or is unable to) but getting a second perspective on her relationship with her then-boyfriend changes how she views her marriage at the end of the film.While I wasn't born until the late-1970's, I constantly heard stories when I was a kid about the close-knit feeling of families and neighborhoods back then. I can't envision being able to live in a house where you didn't have to lock your front door at night, although that's what I keep hearing from Baby Boomers (and even what's left of older people) to this day.It's cool catching this movie on TV. It gives people my age (and younger) a glimpse into how things were "back in the day" when being into your family (parents, grandparents, etc.) was a part of everyday life.
