Terms Of Endearment
Larry McMurtry's novel becomes a somewhat lumpy film as directed by James L. Brooks (As Good As It Gets). Nevertheless, it is entirely winning, with Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger playing a combative mother and daughter who see each other through various ups and downs in love and loss, and most especially through a terminal illness endured by Winger's character. Jack Nicholson deservedly won an Oscar for his supporting role as a free-spirited astronaut who backs away from a romance with MacLaine and then returns in the clutch. As he always does, Brooks keeps things from getting too soapy with his intense concentration on the soulful evolution of his characters. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie is older, but they don't make them like this these days. It's laugh out loud funny & an entire tissue box tear-jerker. Read morePublished on Jan. 4 2010 by Robyn McIntyre
