Storyline

This is a nostalgic look at the typical "Class Reunion" of a group after about a quarter of a century of going their separate ways after graduation. The girls that used to be pretty and the ugly ones have someway become beautiful. The guys that were the most handsome are not necessarily the best looking guys anymore. Some of the once homely guys and girls are better with age. Everything is going great until tragedy strikes when one of them is murdered. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

A strange but often wonderful stew with a terrific cast
22 September 1999 | by CapboySee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this offbeat, meandering but usually always interesting experimental film, which was almost totally improvised by a dazzling cast. Standouts: Dudley Moore, Lindsay Crouse, and (I admit a bias) a beautifully modulated turn by Liza Minnelli, who deserved at least an Emmy nomination for this performance.
