    A great movie with a great soundtrack.
    Larry Katz
    As in real life, no one can find out a certain answer as to why we're here, or if what we're really doing matters that much.

    I've watched this movie many times, love the music!

    THE BIG CHILL is one of those films (like AMERICAN GRAFITTI) that people of a certain age will watch and experience a sense of generational identification. The film is an enjoyable (if somewhat surface) treatment of a generation's coming to terms with the compromise and loss of its youthful ideals. The real treats of the movie are the performances of its ensemble cast and the soundtrack, which is filled with great Motown (and other) hits of the era. This DVD is the best video version yet of this film. The colors are warm and autumnal and the soundtrack is crisp (it practically begs to be pumped up during the songs). This is a special edition which contains deleted scenes (which, unfortunately, do not include the scenes with Kevin Costner) as well as a 55-minute documentary on the making of the film. This features current interviews with the cast and crew reflecting on their experiences making the film and what it has come to mean to them. For those who have a wide-screen TV, this film is enhanced for the 16:9 screen ratio. All in all, this is a first-rate presentation of a fine film.

    Format: DVD
    Since this film first appeared about 20 years ago, it has become a favorite of those who comprise what is referred to as the "Baby Boomer" generation" but its appeal is by no means limited to that age group. So many of its themes (e.g. nostalgia, disenchantment, sexual frustration, egocentricity) are common to all generations. As is often the case, a reunion of friends occurs because of a death, in this case Alex whose corpse is being formally dressed for burial as the film begins. (It is Kevin Costner's body but his head is concealed, with the balance of Costner's appearance lying on a cutting room floor.) Sarah and Harold Cooper (Glenn Close and Kevin Kline) serve as unofficial hostess and host. After the burial, their friends return with them to their home where accommodations are provided. Their extended celebration of both Alex and themselves begins, during which Kasdan (who also wrote the screenplay) carefully reveals the strengths and weaknesses of each central character.

    The Coopers seem to be the strongest, happily married and prosperous but also generous and caring. Nick (William Hurt) is a confused and self-absorbed veteran (in some respects a survivor) of the Viet Nam war. The group includes one celebrity, Sam (Tom Berenger) who stars in a television series. Karen has always been in love with Sam. Now a somewhat unhappily married woman, she struggles with her conflict of emotions (obligations to husband and children juxtaposed with her enduring attraction to Sam). Mary Kay Place is a successful attorney who yearns for parenthood but not necessarily marriage. For me, the most interesting character is Michael (Jeff Goldblum) who comes across as a smarmy, almost desperate social misfit.

    Format: DVD
    Quite often, I come to read Amazon reviews & someone has already written what's in my mind about the subject at hand, and therefore, I feel no need to leave my remarks. I expected that to be the case with this film, given it's age, the overall impact it's had on society, and also the frequency with which it's shown on cable TV to this day. I was surprised to find out, after reading said reviews, that no one had articulated my thoughts, or seemed to quite capture in words what I've gleened from multiple watchings of this movie over the years. I came here to say what I've gotten from the film over the years, and hope to inspire someone who has never seen this great piece of art to watch it- no matter what their age might be. The music is perfectly chosen, the story easy to get into & follow, the scenes are logical & realistic. A top-notch cast & thoughtful dialogue makes this movie continue to stand out as the years pass by, and owning this DVD was a foregone conclusion to me. In my opinion, the scenes which were cut- including the ones with Kevin Costner- were omitted for good reason. They ultimately serve no purpose to the plot, don't add any needed detail to the movie, and in fact would've taken away from the great pace of the film. So kudos to the editing team here, for actually dismissing scenes that should've been removed- which is NOT something that can be said of many a movie!

    I first saw this film as a teenager, and I loved it instantly. I could relate even then to the sense that it's amongst one's chosen friends & not usually the family one is born into that you feel most at home. I could understand even then, if not entirely comprehend, the characters' general sense of unease about their modern lives.

    I saw THE BIG CHILL in high school. I loved it. Strange, considering my age, but it helped me imagine my high school friends and I getting together at age 30 and having a good time. I just watched it again this weekend on DVD, and still consider it a good movie. Don't let the big budget and big names fool you. It's a small film about interesting characters. The only "action" is when Sam tries to jump into Nick's car "J.T. Lancer"-style. Mostly, it's character study. And Mr. Kasdan cast an incredible group of actors. It's a good film.
    Now ... for the DVD ... I think the picture is good. For instance, this is the first time I noticed the mint-green walls of the church in the opening scene. But, the rest of the DVD pales in comparison to others on the market now. Like another reviewer said, the "Trailer" included is for SILVERADO (? ). Where's the BIG CHILL trailer ? The documentary is very well done -- lots of current interviews with cast members (Glenn Close reveals a lot). The cut scenes are interesting too. ** BUT where are the flashback scenes filmed in Atlanta of the cast in their 60's clothes ? I thought for sure we'd get to see those! Nowhere to be found ... Disappointing.
