Editorial Reviews

Natalie, Jeff and Polly share a big problem: being 15 years old. But they also share a lot of laughs because they have each other. This wry, lump-in-the-throat comedy is immediately recognizable by anyone who's survived, or is surviving, growing up. Runaway Jeff (Byron Thames) moves in with Natalie (future Academy Award? winner* Jennifer Connelly) on a friends-only basis while her dad is away - and moves in on her budding relationship with a swell-headed high school hero (Alan Boyce). Meanwhile, Polly (Maddie Corman) flips over a big-league ballplayer (Billy Wirth) who got to second base with her one ardent afternoon. She carries a torch while he carries on with a full roster of groupies. These situations cross, crisscross and double-cross delightfully, thanks to the talents of an energetic young cast, the deftness of the comedy and the truth of the characters. Give Seven Minutes in Heaven your time.

Proving that dramatic fare centering on teenage characters needn't be any less powerful than any other drama, the biggest strregth of "Seven Minutes In Heaven" (apart from the mere prescence of star Jennifer Connelly) is the realization that the loves, ambitions, anxieties, dreams, feelings and disappointments of teenagers are no less real and no less important than those of a person a few years older or a few years younger. That's one of those things that so many people who previously would have agreed with fervently seem to forget on their twentieth birthday. This movie is about all of those things - dreams, loves, anxieties, etc. - in the lives of three friends, Natalie (Connelly), Jeff (Byron Thames) and Polly (Maddie Corman). I usually don't enjoy 'slice-of-life' dramas half as much as this one but "Seven Minutes In Heaven" is so good it would have been a keeper even without Jennifer Connelly in it, who's the reason I originally saw it. Funny in places and downright heartbreaking in places, with massive charm, this movie is a credit to its kind.

And yet it's not out on DVD - I guess I'll just have to add it to my list of dream DVD releases ("Dreamtrap", "Elves", "Basket Case 2", "Scamper The Penguin", "Twogether", "Mannequin II", "Cutting Class" etc. - I could go on and on) that surely someday somebody will Have to bring out on DVD.

Won't they?

At least until then, the VHS of this gem can still be tracked down. Highly, highly recommended.

I loved this movie when I was younger, 12, 13, whatever. It used to come on HBO or Showtime almost every afternoon, and I would watch it everytime. It was something about the story that was quite appealing to me, plus I think back then I thought the Main male character was cute. I would definitely add this movie to the list of best 80's teen movies.

Hi- I am a 15 year old that was home sick one day when I saw this movie on HBO. Honestly, I was moved. I thought this movie moved people's minds from most sterotypes about kids my age, and I thought it was much better than any teen movies they are making today. I am very dissapointed to find that they are not selling this video anymore. I hope the re-distribute it soon, because they have one definite customer already!

Finally a high-school coming-of-age movie with real-life teenagers! This heart-warming funny and clever tale follows three 15-16 year-olds in their rocky road through sophomore year. A young Jennifer Connolley shows her stuff, and Maddie Corman gives a show-stealing performance! A must-see for any teen-angst "Dawson's Creek" fans!

I love this movie. Massive appeal and magically winsome 80's gem. I watched it growing up first as a little kid wondering if she'd ever reach teendom, then as a homesick college student studying for midterms in her dorm room, and finally, as a new mother who is going to introduce her child to this movie by watching it together. It's one of those movies that provides that feeling of childhood security you can never attain again in adulthood. The performances are believable and the storyline is realistic. I don't agree with others that it has a weak storyline. The corniness makes it all the more endearing.

I searched this movie out because I remember friends talking about it when I was a teen. Plus, my acting coach (Van Brooks) has a role of the stadium police officer.

There is a lot to like about this movie. Above all, the three main characters are 15 years old and are actually played by actors who are about that age. This movie captures the real feelings and emotions of the kids and deals with issues that kids this age often face. All three kids are very likable characters--it's easy to root for them.

I was a teen at this time myself, and it captures all the feeling of being a teen in the 1980's. You'll laugh and cry. The kids learn lessons about love, forgiveness, understanding, prejudgments, and relationships.

This is a great movie which I will buy when it comes out on a real DVD. Apparently this method of releasing older hard-to-find movies is becoming popular among studios trying to make a quick buck without investing any money - producing an inferior product at a premium price. DVD-Rs do not play on all DVD players and can cause playback problems. Many DVD-R disks also do not age well - some lose thier ability to play back after a year or two. Another great movie only available on DVD-R is Angus - a great coming-of-age movie with George Scott - come on guys - release it for real!!

Oh, how I love this movie. I've always remembered (for some odd reason) that an orgasm was described in this movie as "exquisite release from torture". I probably sat wide-eyed as a tween back then wondering what it all meant. I was still a bit younger than the characters in this movie, so I thought it this was what teenaged life was all about! I still enjoy it as an adult for the storyline and the nostalgia.
