    Synopsis


    Terms of Endearment
    Terms of Endearment covers three decades in the lives of widow Aurora Greenaway (Shirley MacLaine) and her daughter Emma (Debra Winger). Fiercely protected by Aurora throughout childhood, Emma runs into resistance from her mother when she marries wishy-washy college teacher Flap (Jeff Daniels). Aurora is even more put out at the prospect of being a grandmother, though she grows a lot fonder of her three grandkids than she does of her son-in-law. Flap proves that Aurora's instincts were on target when he enters into an affair with a student (Kate Charleson). Meanwhile, Emma finds romantic consolation with an unhappily married banker (played by John Lithgow, who registers well in a rare "nice guy" performance). As for Aurora, she is ardently pursued by her next-door neighbor, boisterous astronaut Garrett Breedlove (Jack Nicholson). After 75 minutes or so of pursuing an episodic, semi-comic plotline, the film abruptly shifts moods when Emma discovers that she has terminal cancer. Terms of Endearment won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay for TV veteran James L. Brooks making his first feature film, Best Actress for MacLaine, and Best Supporting Actor for Nicholson. It was followed by a sequel, The Evening Star (1996), which again featured MacLaine as Aurora. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      This is one of the greatest movies of all time. The price is super low and worth the purchase. It is a great story and has a great cast. The actors in here a superb and the story is well written. It has evrything. You will be mad. You will laugh. You will cry. This movie taps into every emotion you have and everyone can relate to this movie in someway. Jack Nicholson, Debra Winger, Shirley MacLaine, and Jeff Daniels need I say more.

      The title of this review says it all. Shirley MacLaine, Debra Winger, Jack Nicholson...the entire cast was spot-on. This is a superbly-written script with outstanding acting from everyone involved. The movie deserved to win Best Picture, and will remain one of my all-time favorites.

      So disappointing

      This was a good movie but they say it was a comedy but it was a drama! Too much foul mouth and its so drawn out. The only reason I saw this because my friend said it was good. I was happy when she died at the end so I can go watch something else. But over all I give it two out of five.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
