5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Moon December 24, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I caught this movie in New York and I am looking forward to the video! Ben Gazzara and Rita Moreno are so perfect together. It is a film that will rent well to the romantic in us all. And the youngsters, Brian Vincent and Alanna Ubach bring a sweet charm to this lovely film. Will be especially well recieved on television I believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once in a Blue Moon July 28, 2003
The movie uses a sci fi twist to make a point about love, commitment, relationships, and physical and emotional child abuse. I like this movie very much. It sets up a mysterious and romantic tone very well, it is well-acted, and the scenes are perfectly timed to maintain a good pace.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual February 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a huge Ben Gazzara fan. This movie was unique and different. Ben, as always, was fantastic. Talia Shire was very good. The plot was a little hard to follow, but still an enjoyable movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good heart in need of some oomph November 1, 2004
This is a pleasant little low-budget film about a just-retired man and his lovely wife (Ben Gazzara and Rita Moreno) who just don't know what to do with themselves now that the gentleman's successful career in the garment industry has come to an end. As his inactivity-induced depression drags their relationship down into an ugly bickering mire, they (she) decide(s) that they need a trip to their cabin in the Catskills. While there she secretly wishes that they could "remember what we meant to each other," certainly a fond thought for those of us who have been married for many years.

But true to what he calls "the magic of the mountains," the wish actually comes true when a pair of young visitors turns up late that first night at their cabin.....and it turns out these are their younger selves, transported via some kind of wish-fulfillment time warp, and the four talk out their problems with the relationship that one couple is about to embark upon and that the other couple is struggling due to a major life change.

Really, the story in general is a winner, and if the above description appeals to you, then the film is worth watching once for that. Lovely young Alanna Ulbach is terrific as the young Moreno character, and Brian Vincent does a good job too as the young man Gazzara once was. Watch for cameos from Burt Young and Christopher Penn (uncredited).

The problems I have with the finished product are really many. First, the racial, class, political, and similar cliches here are multiple.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really Sweet Movie January 20, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
It's the kind of movie that is so warm and humorous that couples absolutely have to rent it. I saw it in LA with my husband and even he got a little teary. I think the film is especially great for couples making up after a fight. Trust me on that one!
