5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Joan Diener!, August 15, 2002
The review on this page criticizing Joan Diener's performance is pretty awful. Wonder what the motive is here. I recently bought the remastered recording and think her performance is one of the loveliest, most heartfelt ones in Broadway history. Interesting, too, to realize that the play really is her story. I didn't get this when I was 15 and heard the recording for the first time. Definitely worth the investment, if for no other reason than to hear Joan Diener as Aldonza.

1.0 out of 5 stars Major disappointment., April 4, 2002
Sometimes it only takes one bad recipe to ruin a cookbook for me, and that's what happened with this one. Susan Purdy's apricot-walnut pie turned out to be a soggy, way oversweet mess, and I didn't use half the sugar she called for. I've been making pies a long time, and I had questions about this recipe from the get-go. Her crust recipes are good, however, although it's annoying that she never tells you, when adding an ingredient like wheat germ to a crust, whether said ingredient replaces part of the dry ingredients called for, or is added to them. Seems like a major oversight in a book that promises to clearly communicate pie recipes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, September 12, 1999
A creaky plot. An insipid heroine. Supporting characters straight out of the stereotype zone. There's nothing noir about this book except its cover. Jane Candiotti is more concerned about getting the ex-husband of the deceased in bed than finding the killer, and then she whines about how weary she is from everyone depending on her too much (when in fact it's her brother Timmy who's carrying the lion's share of responsibility for caring for ill Dad, and her male partner who's really working the murder investigation). Philips needs to spend more time around real-life detectives and less time fantasizing about a woman so needy and pliable. She's about as gritty and intriguing as a Harlequin romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Works, August 10, 1999
You be the judge. 8th week on the program: Weight 168, down from 178 eight weeks ago; Waist 33", down from 35" eight weeks ago; Blood Pressure 121/58, down from 134/83 eight weeks ago. It's the last figure that amazes me most. This program is excellent. The only drawback: users could benefit from a spiral-bound notebook/diary format rather than the hardbound edition currently available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, April 9, 1999
Thank you MGM for your "Contemporary Classics" release of this wonderful movie. More ideas spin through this screenplay than you'll hear in 50 other rentals. A production that relies on the sheer beauty and fireworks of language to carry it forward, along with Stockard Channing's indelible intepretation of NY socialite Ouisa Kittredge. (I love you, Holly Hunter, but I will never forgive you for stealing the Oscar away from this master.) It's an astonishing performance and an astonishing script, with a climax that moves you--and yet leaves you wondering why you were moved. It's not "Beaches," after all, but the story of a woman who is forced to re-examine her life, and then to joyously embrace her rebirth. I could go on and on. Rent it!

4.0 out of 5 stars and they're off!, February 10, 1999
OK, I was so busy praising this musical I forgot to mention my favorite song. "And They're Off" is unbelievable--a driving melody conveying all the anger and processed-only-of-late acceptance of the stormy relationship of the lead character's parents. "There was blood on the ground," yes, but also, "we laughed a lot, that's the part I forgot to tell you." This is the first theater song in 20 years that has reminded me of the songs of "A Chorus Line," with its honest confessional tone, thinly veiled anger, and humor from a character who is so proud to be--finally--"looking back." I love this song, and Malcolm Gets does it for all it's worth.

4.0 out of 5 stars astonishing, February 10, 1999
Listen to the humor and sheer love of life--and all its quirkiness--in this musical. You'll be amazed at the wisdom, the melody, the frankness about "relationships," and the performances, most notably Malcolm Gets, Penny Fuller, Chip Zien, and Norm Lewis (oh, that man can sing!). When Penny Fuller sings to her dying son that he should "fly with the man" who has asked him to sleep in his arms, it made at least this listener-who has lived for 20 years with his parent's vocal acceptance of his homosexuality-weep. And then there's "Sailing." What riches in this musical! I can't wait to see it performed, somewhere!
