    This is such a fine piece of art. The dialogue and the relationship between the characters is so special. Such a warm hearted and incredibly funny entertaining movie at times. It is a roller coaster ride of emotions. The acting is about as good as acting can get. Terrific performances.

    It's beautiful. It's real. A kind of situation that happens all the time with many people. Shirley and Debra are perfect together. Nicholson is brilliant as usual. Anyway, a beautiful story with the perfect soundtrack.

    The dual-track plot, with constant cutting between mother and daughter, seems less an attempt to establish meaningful parallels between the two stories than the nervous twitches of a compulsive channel changer.

    This is a wonderful film. There isn't a thing that I would change.
  3. There's not enough substance to support the sentiment of this longish comedy-drama.
