Product Details

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Tear-jerker Dec 24 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger play mother and daughter who are alternately at love and war with each other as they go on the roller-coaster of life. On a routine visit to the pediatrician for one of her sons, Winger's doc is more interested in her swollen glands than he is in her son's ear ache - and the next thing we know, Winger's diagnosed with a terminal illness. The pathos is well played, and I challenge anyone to emerge dry-eyed from the scene in which she says good-bye to her sons, esp to the one who is so angry and uncommunicative.
Everyone comes thru in the end, including the lumpish ex-husband, and Jack Nicholson, playing a free-spirited astronaut who is MacLaine's love interest, deservedly won an Oscar for this performance.
Excellent book by McMurtry; great movie by James L. Brooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies ever Jan. 4 2010
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. Shirley MacLaine is pricelessly perfect in this unforgettable role. Buy it, buy, it, buy it! You won't regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat cold, but still wonderful. May 14 2004
I saw this movie after I had seen Steel Magnolias, and to be honest it did not impress me as much as Steel Magnolias did. They are both classics in the film world, but I found Magnolias better and more heartwarming. Shirley Maclaine did a wonderful job acting in this film as the troubled mother of a sickly daughter. The movie comes together in the end but at some points the movie lacked that sense of heart and home that Steel Magnolias had. See it and make the judgment for yourself. I do reccomend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars As a Male, I Dig This Movie Dec 2 2003
This film is categorized as a chick flick...but hey it made me cry too. I was a kid when I saw this film. My cat had just died, and guess what her name was? ...EMMA!!!!
Well when Emma died in the film I almost lost it..
Shirley MacLaine said working with Debra Winger was hard to do as Debra was very gassy...

5.0 out of 5 stars On my top 10 list of all time Nov. 14 2003
When we're channel surfing and this movie is on, my husband just hands over the remote b/c he KNOWS I cannot pass up watching it for the 200th time. It reels me right in. Even though I KNOW I am going to be blubbering and sobbing at the end. Even though I KNOW I am going to sit there and WISH I could somehow change the course of the movie... that somehow, this time, things will work out differently... Just a materpiece of film making in the true sense of the word. No special effects, no plot twists. Just good old characterization and human interaction. EXCELLENT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but predictable in a way. Aug. 14 2003
This movie was a very good movie. I think it fully deserved its Oscar.
The only thing that bothered me was how predictable the ending was.
For me, Jack Nicholson was the highlight of the movie. He really was Shirley MacLaine's (character's) answer to her prayer
I do recommend this movie, mostly to women. It is a "tear-jerker" i guess (thats the category my local Blockbuster put it in,, but it wasnt for me) and men don't seem to interested in those type of movies.
So if you need a good cry, or if you wanna watch some good acting, check out "Terms of Endearment".

4.0 out of 5 stars COMING TO TERMS WITH PARAMOUNT DVD! March 9 2003
By Nix Pix
By all accounts Debra Winger wasn't easy to get along with either on or off the set. But before she disappeared from Hollywood she proved that she was, among other things, one hell of a good actress. In "Terms of Endearment" she plays Emma, a newlywed, stricken with cancer and forced to grapple with the antics of her philandering husband, Flap (Jeff Daniels). The film is a potpourri of finely wrought performances and it really gets to the heart of the oddly confrontational relationship between a mother and daughter. On this occasion Emma's mother, Aurora Greenwood is played by Shirley MacLaine. As the grieving, scheming, ultra-concerned, overly protective and manipulative mother, MacLaine is superb. It's really no wonder or surprise that she took home the Oscar for this performance. Jack Nicholson costars as has been astronaut, Garrett Breedlove, known more for his roving eye and noncommittal, devil-may-care attitude toward the ladies than his prowess in the cockpit. His love/hate stance with Aurora blossoms into a genuinely poignant relationship as the film progresses. Danny Devito also appears in a cameo as one of Aurora's potential suitors.
Paramount Home Video has issued this movie in anamorphic widescreen. Colors are well balanced, though details get lost in darker scenes. The characteristic of the picture, overall, is one of dated 80s quality with film grain, grit and some smearing of colors and fading of fine details. Still, it's free of pixelization, edge enhancement and shimmering artifacts. The sound is flat but nicely restored. There are no extras.
