One of Shelley Long's better comedies, HELLO AGAIN is an entertaining "What If?" story with a twist. Lucy Chadman (Shelley Long) has it all...a rich plastic surgeon-husband (Corbin Bernsen), a devoted son, a faithful dog, great friends and a beautiful mansion. But when she accidentally chokes to death on a chicken-ball, her charmed life comes to a premature end. Enter her wacky sister Zelda (Judith Ivey) who resurrects Lucy with an ancient spell. But Lucy is shocked when she discovers how much time has been taken from her, with her husband now re-married to her supposed `Best Friend' (Sela Ward), and when the press finds out about Lucy's miraculous return from the grave, it's every man for himself!

Shelley Long radiates charm and warmth as Lucy. I've always loved Long and this is arguably her best solo comedy effort. She adds a lot of pathos and heart to the role. Judith Ivey is hilarious as Zelda; can you say `scene-stealer'?. Corbin Bernsen and Sela Ward play the uptight yuppies to the hilt. The outstanding supporting cast includes Austin Pendleton, Carrie Nye and Gabriel Byrne. A witty and clever comedy that needs to be rediscovered.

This is one of my all-time favorites! Yeah it's cheesy, but it's so funny... you really can't take it seriously. I can practically recite the dialogue with the movie, I've seen it so many times... it's great! Shelley Long is hilarious in this role.

As a mother of two young children my husband and I often rely on our DVD collection for a night "at" the movies. Hello Again is just a cute film that the whole family can pile up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and enjoy.This movie may seem silly to some but hey sometimes a good movie is just that...silly. I love this film and have seen it many times over without growing tired of it. I am anxiously awaiting its release on DVD.

It's easy to dismiss this film as a forgettable piece of 80's fluff, but don't be hasty. Agreed, it is difficult to go along with the whole "back from the dead" aspect without rolling the eyes. But if you take that element out of it, you'll have the same story of life and love, and of second chances for both. It's an adorable little romp. Nice performances all around, especially from Gabriel Byrne as the charismatic yet lonely doctor who falls in love with Lucy (Shelley Long). So abandon your standard discriminating tastes in films for about 90 minutes, and enjoy the fun.

I thought this movie was VERY funny. Shelley's death scene is quite a laugh. And of course the story premise is very fun. Not a bad film at all. What can I say! It's just very cute and funny. Very good for a Saturday/Sunday afternoon movie.

I find it fascinating that Shelley Long quit "Cheers" to make movies like this. Because unlike TV actresses like Suzanne Somers, Shelly Long had real talent. In "Hello Again" Shelley plays the somewhat boring Lucy Chadman, a bored suburban wife who finds herself brought back to life; thanks to her sister. Despite the foolish plot, this really isn't that bad. It's one of those silly 80's movies that you have to laugh at because it is such a far fetched story. The supporting cast was pretty good, I especially liked Judith Ivy as Zelda the fun-loving psychic and Sela Ward as money-hungry Kim.
