However, at it's heart, this movie is a drama with some very serious issues and some very serious messages. Ultimately, this movie is about standing up for yourself. It's about taking control of your life. It's about standing up to defend yourself from the people who are tormenting you. Anyone who's ever been bullied stands to benefit from seeing this film. It really is a good form of therapy. You'll know that you're not alone. You'll know that there are other people who know how you feel. And that's one of the reaons why I love this movie so much.
Of course another reaosn I love this movie is Phoebe Cates. Her characer here is so sweet and wonderful. How can any guy see this movie and not think he's in love with her? And honestly, I think she's a better actress when she keeps her clothes on, as she does here. Throughout the course of the movie, Cates displays just about every emotion that there is. She's truly a great actress.
Kudos also go to Ashley Peldon, who does a remarkable job as the child version of Elizabeth. Tim Matheson does a perfect job portraying the jerk husband. Marsha Mason is fantastic as the evil mother. All the other actors do their jobs very well. Every role is cast perfectly.
Every scene in the movie is necessary. Nothing is wasted.Read more ›
The faithless husband who is about to dump Phoebe gets a most satisfying comeuppance. Marsha Mason, who cannot give a bad performance, is icily perfect as the mother who wants to create Phoebe in her own image. Their shopping trip where Phoebe ends up identically clad as Mom is worth the price of admission. A nice supporting role by Carrie Fisher who plays Phoebe's older, worldly-wise friend is well paced and lively.
To the editorial nay-sayers, it only Fred that does these disgusting things, and he does them with the flair of any average five-year old. If everyone in the audience hasn't at least pulled some of the antics that Fred did, I am certain he or she had far too sedate a childhood. At the end of one particularly satisfying scene, I caught myself saying, "Yes!" just like the kid in "Home Alone." Have a fun evening with your best pal whether they are six or sixty.
