Harry and Sue Lewis met in the 40s as teenagers living in the Bronx. He was an aspiring architect, she was the most beautiful girl in school, and both had a fondness for bran muffins. They fell in love, got married, moved to Los Angeles, and had two kids. While struggling with his midlife crisis, Harry receives an invitation for his high school's reunion back so he takes Sue and their teenage kids on a cross-country car trip back to the Big Apple. Will they see in the Bronx what they expected? Will the good memories from their past help rekindle their fading love? Is it too late to dream?

I suppose he was the "Great Emancipator" because he was liberating zombies right and left from being undead. Although I would have rather been spared, "Emancipate THIS." the other quotes were relatively appropriate....he even quotes Shakespeare at some point, which I am sure is something he would have done. Quite enjoyable over all.

Greg W (es) wrote: Van Sant's refusal to delve into his subject in anything but an abstract way renders the movie pointless and frustrating -- a lyrical, lovely tone poem, signifying little.

Nelson M (jp) wrote: While the film has its head in the right direction, it is far too much of a mess to be anything good. The acting is all over the place, the direction is disjointed, and parts of it are simply poorly done in all aspects. Alan Rudolph isn't a bad director, but some of the liberties he took with Vonnegut's novel are confusing, such as having Celia Hoover remain alive, or changing the nature of several characters, not to mention the ending. The only consistently good aspect of the film is Albert Finney's portrayal of Kilgore Trout. This film could have been so much more, but instead tried to be too quirky instead of giving the film anything resembling substance.

Byron B (it) wrote: I once directed a short scene from this movie for a theatre festival in college. I made sure neither of the guys in my cast or myself watched the movie during rehearsals. I wanted to create my own interpretation of it and not try to copy the movie. Reading the scene, I thought it was very funny, and I maintain that the scene I directed turned out much better than the way it was portrayed in the film. When I finally saw this I was very disappointed.

Kevin M W (es) wrote: A top tier cast in Capra's swan song delivers the goods in this urban fantasy that cleverly carries the old moral that it's better to give than receive. While everyone's good in this (nearly half the pleasure is in recognizing who's who in the group) (and Peter Falk did snag a supporting Oscar nomination) it's Bette Davis's transformation at the center that powers the heart of this big, happy puppy let loose in your home.
