Now and Then [DVD] [1995]

Lesli Linka Glatter's coming-of-age comedy Now and Then comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include filmographies for the cast and crew, as well as the theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from New Line that will appeal to the film's fans.

    Now and Then
    Four women look back at the girls they used to be in this warm comedy-drama. Author Samantha Albertson (Demi Moore), actress Tina Tercell (Melanie Griffith), gynecologist Roberta Martin (Rosie O'Donnell), and housewife Christina DeWitt (Rita Wilson) are friends from childhood who get together for the first time in years when Christina is about to have a baby. Seeing the old gang sends Samantha down memory lane, as she recalls the summer of 1970, when the girls were 12-years-old and edging into womanhood. Samantha (Gaby Hoffmann) is struggling with the collapse of her parent's marriage, Roberta (Christina Ricci) must deal with the death of her mother, Tina (Thora Birch) is upset over her folks' apparent disinterest in her, and Christina (Ashleigh Aston Moore) is trying to overcome her mother's disinformation campaign about sex. Together, they discuss boys and first kisses, compare notes on the physical and emotional changes they're going through, and have seances where they try to communicate with a boy who died tragically 30 years earlier. Demi Moore, whose character narrates the film, also served as producer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This movie is horrible all over. It is compared to "Stand By Me". That movie is a classic. This one does not even come close to measuring up to SBM. Some say this is an inspirational movie for young girls. Just so you know, they are wrong! If you're a parent do not show this to your child. It promotes sexism in the worst ways. The girls a children are all persecuted by boys. This is taken to the absolute extreme. This is not like real life. Every interaction with the boys these girls have they act as if they are being attacked. In response they proceed to become violent physically, verbally, and by their actions. This is a horrible movie and a bad influence. 0/10. Do not watch it.

      I LOVE this movie!


      This is a great coming-of-age film that is has a wonderful cast. It is about four girls and their promise to always be there when they needed each other. The story starts off at their adulthood when one of them is having a baby, they then recall their chilhood summer of 1970 when they transitioned and matured into young women. It is similar to the movie "Little Women". This movie also has a great soundtrack to it that is quite nostalgic. I definitely recommend this movie to all!

      Great Cast, Great Music, Great Movie


      This movie is so much fun to watch. Its fun because you can relate. The girls as kids have experiences that are either universal or can be related to something you experienced as a kid. And the friendships between the girls are unforgettable.

      Now and Then is the story of 4 teen girls who are best friends growing up together. They have fun summer adventures and share laughs and tears. The movie shows how all the girls grow up and who they become as women. Great movie!
