Product Description

Product Description

Terms Of Endearment

Amazon.ca

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.

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.

I've always been fascinated by good acting. It can make a break a film for me. TERMS OF ENDEARMENT is an acting feast, boasting stellar performances from Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger (as unlikely a biological mother/daughter combo as you can imagine, but hey, this is the movies). Jack Nicholoson does his thing as your typical astronaut-next door, and is effective, although it's a bit surprising that he walked off with an Oscar for what was, for him, pretty much a walk-through. John Lithgow and a young Jeff Daniels don't have all that much to do either, although like Nicholson, they are, at least, true to form. But this is one for the ladies, and it belongs to its two female leads.
I had a chuckle when I read Amazon's Tom Keough's review posted above. "Lumpy" is not a bad term for this film. It's really another one of those Hollywood adaptations, where you just know the book had to be better, even if you've never read the book. Everything here is just a little too rushed, a little too sketchy. You know time's flying because different child actors keep cropping up, playing the same roles at different ages. There seems to be an inordinate haste to get to the meat of the drama, which is, of course, the illness and death of Debra Winger's character.
Overall, a better and more authentic weep-fest than, say, BEACHES or LOVE STORY. Not quite as powerful a family drama as, say, the similarly themed ORDINARY PEOPLE, however. Well worth seeing, if like me, you've somehow missed it all these years. If nothing else, you can learn a great deal about the actor's craft from watching two truly great actresses.

This film deals with the subject matter normally associated with mini series. Three generations of a family in times of happiness and sadness. Despite this, and despite its length, it is entertaining and attention-holding throughout. Shirley MacLaine gives a wonderful performance of a frosty divorcee/widow (it's never made quite clear) who thaws on meeting the charming neighbour Jack Nicholson. Jack plays his usual character, but as always, he does it so well that you forgive him for it. Shirley wears some truly hideous frocks and has some appalling hairstyles, but her smile manages to shine through all of this towards the end of the film. The strong ensemble cast is completed by Debra Winger and Jeff Daniels who play their parts to perfection, but these are not as detailed as MacLaine's Aurora, and maybe the film would have benefited from concentrating on one character. Having said that, the cutting between mother and daughter enables the film-makers to show us both sides of their relationship. The cryptic title keeps you thinking throughout the film, but the music occasionally stops you thinking and is over the top in places. You should be warned that this is an especially sad film, so don't watch it if you get too upset by this sort of thing.

Terms Of Endearment is, funny, sad, and heartbreaking. It's the story of a relationship of a mother and daughter that goes through ups and downs during the course of a few years. One of the things that makes this movie work is how real it is. This is real life. There's nothing more real than that. This can be anybody's mother and daughter. It could be you. Shirley MacLaine gives one of cinema's most memorable and brilliant portrayols as Aurora Greenway, who is one of movieland's greatest characters. She is so perfect, she deserved ten more Oscars just for the hell of it. Debra Winger, as the daughter, is good as well. She really brings her character to life. And there's Jack Nicholson. Nobody is better than Jack. His performance, like Shirley's, is also one of Hollywood's best classics. It's a role where Jack gets to shine brighter than ever. There are many classic scenes and lines in this film. That doesn't happen often. The remaining cast is brilliant: Jeff Daniels, John Lithgow, and Danny DeVito. What an electrifying cast. Watch this movie. And, oh, by the way, grab a hankie. A film classic.

Another film that made me cry! If you've read my reviews on KRAMER VS. KRAMER and RAIN MAN, then you know my story. But, yes, it's happened again! Another Best Picture Oscar-winner has allowed me to shed my tears freely and openly.
Based on the novel by Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, The Last Picture Show), TERMS OF ENDEARMENT is a "family" film that deals with a 30-year relationship between a flighty mother and her headstrong daughter, played to perfection by Shirley MacLaine as Aurora Greenway, and Debra Winger as her daughter Emma Horton. The film begins by establishing the relatonship between the neurotic Aurora with her young daughter.
It makes you laugh and it makes you cry! Either way, the film deserves its kudos. Created by future SIMPSONS producer James L. Brooks, we see the emotional turmoil that both Aurora and Emma face in their love lives.
The cast consists of: Jack Nicholson, as Aurora's zany cosmonaut boyfriend Garrett Breedlove (a role originally intended for Burt Reynolds [YIKES!]), Jeff Daniels as Emma's philandering husband Flap Horton, John Lithgow as Emma's lover Sam Burns, and Danny DeVito, in a delightful cameo, as Vernon Dahlart.
After a while, though, the film does tend to drift a bit. You have to be patient considering that the final climax, in which Emma loses her fight with cancer, is the blow that sent me (and possibly millions of other viewers) into tears. Watch Aurora's face; watch Emma's, and you'll know exactly what they're saying without them even saying a word. Simply devastating!
