This is a great Film, not only is it a fast moving film, but it also
shows how alcohol can ruin someone's life and what effects it will have
not only on themselves but also on those around her. It has a great
mother daughter relationship that is being tested from the beginning of
the movie. This movie also shows the support of her good friends and
how much they are will to put up with! This movie was ahead of it time
for when it came out in the early 80's and touched on a lot of subjects
that were not discussed even for 1981!! Marsha Mason plays a woman with
a drinking problem, has a gay best friend and a friend who is obsessed
with her looks, she is divorced and she is not the parent who raised
her daughter because of her alcohol problems. Kristy McNichol plays the
daughter who really only wants her mother to notice her and pay
attention to her.
Yes, it maybe somewhat similar to The Goodbye Girl but there are some
major differences. It also has great story and moves along fast, is
funny, and at one point you really do not like Marsha Mason character,
which is what a good movie does!!! But this is a movie you need to see
for yourself and make your mind up!!
