THE EVENING STAR is the sequel to the highly popular 1983 film TERMS OF ENDEARMENT. The kids are grown up. The eldest son in jail, the youngest son in a dead end job and fathering an illegitemate son with his girlfriend, and a hell bent daughter. Aurora has to deal with all of this, but her friends such as her maid Rosie, help her out. Rosie decides that Aurora is depressed, and tricks her into seeing a psychiatrist, who Aurora eventually falls for. Then there is Patsy, always integrating herself into Aurora's life, being jealous of her taking care of the kids when they were growing up. This feud is well played throughout the movie, with Patsy trying to upstage Aurora at every chance, and vice versa. They both fall for the same man, who is much younger than Aurora, which only causes more friction in their already tumultuous friendship. Life changes though when her grandson gets out of jail and decides to make a life for himself, and Aurora's granddaughter learns to chase her dreams after life's disapointments. The movie centers around these characters and their interpersonal relationships with each other, dealing with conflicts, death, and whatever card fate hands them. Shirley MacLaine shines once again as Aurora Greenway, and the cast is enriched by Juliette Lewis, Bill Paxton, Marion Ross, Miranda Richardson, and more. Overall, some reviewers don't like it as much as TERMS, but I think this improves on an already great story.

THE EVENING STAR is the long-awaited sequel to TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, continuing the story of Aurora Greenway and the children of her daughter Emma.

Aurora (Shirley MacLaine) has succeeded in raising Tommy (George Newbern), Teddy (Mackenzie Astin) and Melanie (Juliette Lewis), though she's not very happy with the outcome. Tommy is in jail, Teddy has had a family out of wedlock and Melanie is skipping college and sleeping with a boy that Aurora (to put it mildly) doesn't approve of.

Aurora's lovelife has also taken a nosedive. Garrett (Jack Nicholson) has moved away and the house seems too big and lonely. At the `suggestion' of maid Rosie (Marion Ross) she goes to see a counsellor (Bill Paxton). Trying desperately to keep Emma's family together, Aurora slowly mends the rift between the past and present.

This emotional sequel to TOE is fantastic. Miranda Richardson fills the role of bitchy Patsy (played by Lisa Hart Carroll in the original film) perfectly, and Marion Ross more than fills the shoes of Rosie (played previously by Betty King). Juliette Lewis is lovely as Melanie (and does resemble Debra Winger who played Emma). And no sequel to TERMS OF ENDEARMENT would be complete without Jack Nicholson dropping by!

So lets revisit Aurora as she takes us through the next chapter of the Greenway story...

This movie was amazing. I laughed, I cried. I have watched this movie so many times, that I will need to buy a second copy of it. Even my 7 year old daughter loves this movie. It has a great story line, and is just written beautifully.

Everytime I watch this witty, funny, sad, tearful movie, I both laugh and cry. The acting is wonderful. Shirley Macclaine is a very lovable character along with the rest of the cast. Great movie! Never get tired of re-watching.

This is a sequal to Terms Of Enderment and 4 stars. The movie takes place almost 20 years later where the kids have grown. The oldest grandson is in jail with a second possession charge and is angry over his past. The second grandson is under poverty level and has a GF and son and the youngest is a rebel she leaves with her BF for California and gets dumped by him when he becomes a hot new face on commercials. She asks her moms best friend Patsy for help where that annoys her grandma. who consider Patsy an outsider. She meets a new social worker who helps her see things differently and awakens feelings in her. an old friend of her past shows up to visit and they remiss on what friendship they had. This sequal is sort of a bittersweet movie that's like leaving home and returning some time after you left.

It's so easy to bash this poor movie in comparison to its predecessor, but Terms of Endearment is, in my opinion, the best film ever made and even if you don't agree with me, the facts speak for themselves.. the amazing cast, the awards including Best Picture. A very hard act to follow. To enjoy this vastly inferior sequel you must treat it as a stand-alone film, if possible. Forget where it came from and just enjoy the characters.

I'm reviewing my old original release DVD which I purchased in July of 2006. The picture quality leaves much to be desired. Colors seem uneven. The film looks pretty rough on my 32" 720p screen. Watchable but noticeably bad. Michael Gore's original themes have been adapted here by someone who had the nerve to take a 'Music by' credit for Mr. Gore's work. It sounds beautiful in 5.1. This isn't an effects movie so there's nothing really to shine in a surround mix other than the music.

In typical old school Paramount DVD fashion, extras are sparse. You get the trailer and a snoozefest of a commentary track by the director, who takes long pauses.. I'd say nearly as long as Rob Reiner does in his commentaries. Very frustrating. What he does say is not especially enlightening.

To sum it up, we have a movie that ranks only among better TV movies (which isn't a compliment to a theatrical film). A DVD that presents the film rather poorly, and no bonus features worth getting it for... yet I still have to recommend it to 'Terms' fans because you need to see the continuation of the story, even if it pretty much sucks. LOL. I cannot recommend paying the current price of the 'Archive' version of the disc. This should be a bargain bin disc. Don't pay over $5 to see this thing.
