This movie keeps making me come back to it. It's a simple, unpretentious, film which deals with a profound question: is life a string of unrelated chaotic events or is everything we encounter all a part of a bigger picture? Without spoiling anything, I can tell you that the story is one about inintended epiphanies revealing the latter perspective. In the process, the film makes one think about life and feel satisfied from doing so.

Easily one of my most favorite movies of all time. It's the stories of many characters and one doesn't believe they have anything in common when in fact they do. Very similar to the movie Crash. Beautiful and simple all at the same time. Worth a buy, immediately.

The characters are people you'd want to have a beer with individually and collectively.

Grand Canyon shows how people can positively impact one and other with minimal effort. It shows how one good deed can rapidly compound to change a life and how people in different walks of life need each other. The multiple story lines build on each other and tell a series of stories that provide insight.

The helicopters that roam LA skies at night are explained.

The movie leaves you wanting to talk with an old friend.

Totally enjoyed this flick. Watched it twice within three days, and will watch it again. I also have recommended it to numerous friends.Absolutely loved the relationships that were built, loved the cast and can't think of a thing of which to be critical.

Grand Canyon is a 1991 American drama feature film directed and co-written by Lawrence Kasdan and featuring an ensemble cast. About random events affecting a selection of diverse characters, the film explores the race- and class-imposed chasms which separate members of the same community. Grand Canyon was advertised as "The Big Chill for the '90s", in reference to an earlier Kasdan film.......
After attending a Lakers basketball game, an immigration lawyer named Mac (Kevin Kline) finds himself at the mercy of potential muggers when his car breaks down in a bad part of Los Angeles late at night. The muggers are talked out of their plans by Simon (Danny Glover), a tow truck driver who arrives just in time. Mac sets out to befriend Simon, despite their having nothing in common.........
In the meantime, Mac's wife Claire (Mary McDonnell) and his best friend Davis (Steve Martin) (a producer of violent action films) are experiencing life-changing events. Claire encounters an abandoned baby while jogging and becomes determined to adopt her. Davis suddenly becomes interested in philosophy rather than box-office profits after being shot in the leg by a man trying to steal his watch, vowing to devote the remainder of his career to eliminating violence from the cinema.
The film chronicles how these characters—as well as various acquaintances, co-workers and relatives—are affected by their interactions in the light of life-changing events. In the end, they visit the Grand Canyon on a shared vacation trip, united in a place that is philosophically and actually "bigger" than all their little separate lives.
