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".
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.
BOTTOM LINE: GREAT MOVIE! GOOD BUY! SOME WORK LEFT TO BE DONE OVER AT THE 'MOUTAIN'!
