One of Shelley Long's better comedies, HELLO AGAIN is an entertaining "What If?" story with a twist. Lucy Chadman (Shelley Long) has it all...a rich plastic surgeon-husband (Corbin Bernsen), a devoted son, a faithful dog, great friends and a beautiful mansion. But when she accidentally chokes to death on a chicken-ball, her charmed life comes to a premature end. Enter her wacky sister Zelda (Judith Ivey) who resurrects Lucy with an ancient spell. But Lucy is shocked when she discovers how much time has been taken from her, with her husband now re-married to her supposed `Best Friend' (Sela Ward), and when the press finds out about Lucy's miraculous return from the grave, it's every man for himself!
Shelley Long radiates charm and warmth as Lucy. I've always loved Long and this is arguably her best solo comedy effort. She adds a lot of pathos and heart to the role. Judith Ivey is hilarious as Zelda; can you say `scene-stealer'?. Corbin Bernsen and Sela Ward play the uptight yuppies to the hilt. The outstanding supporting cast includes Austin Pendleton, Carrie Nye and Gabriel Byrne. A witty and clever comedy that needs to be rediscovered.
