Directed by James L. Brooks

Family Drama, Tragi-comedy - Rated PG - 132 Minutes - 1983

Both Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson celebrated birthdays in the past week, and their pairing in James L. Brooks' Oscar-winner is one of the film's highlights. Though the true love story is between MacLaine and her daughter, played by Debra Winger, Nicholson's Lothario ex-astronaut delivers the needed levity in what would otherwise be a crushingly dour story, and was the first inkling of Nicholson's acceptance of playing unkempt, somewhat unappealing characters.
