I haven't seen this film, which won a number of Academy Awards including Best Picture for 1983 and Best Director for James L Brooks who was known for creating TV shows like Room 222, Mary Tyler Moore (and the spinoffs) and Taxi.   

Apparently this film is a real tear jerker, so bring lots of tissue.  You have been warned. :)

Terms of Endearment (1983)

Movie synopsis:

Multiple Academy Award-winner "Terms of Endearment" (1983) has surely endeared itself to audiences both comically, and emotionally. Based off of the novel by Larry McMurtry, the film's plot focuses on the capricious relationship between a mother and her daughter. Their lives are constantly changing and the daughter fighting a bout of terminal cancer, every day is filled with drama. The lead cast is superb and is complemented well by the strong supporting actors.

Trailer:

    Anyone who produced The Simpsons is a genius. I enjoyed the movie for what it was...an 80's family saga. with better-than-average actors.

    I was really looking forward to seeing this film, since it won best picture against the other nominees "The Big Chill", "The Dresser", "The Right Stuff", and "Tender Mercies". And I've always loved the theme tune, which I think is very melodic and moving. But the movie itself was a big disappointment for me. Two main things that made it difficult for me to really get into this film: It jumped into the future too much and at the weirdest places which made it hard to understand the relationships and why they were dysfunctional; and the characters were just all unhappy, miserable people. The one bright spot was Jack Nicholson, his moments on screen really were the most enjoyable parts. Thanks everyone for coming out to watch this one!

      James L Brooks is a famous television director,etc. This was really a sort of sitcom transferred to the big screen. you simply had to imply the relationships that might have taken place, and fill in the episodes that you missed. Danny DeVito was the adoring little fellow who was always there,a tv stereotype.

      I enjoyed the movie! I cried on cue and smiled at all the endearing moments,like seeing Jack Nicholson in shorts and listening to the conversations between the ladies. but I especially liked the sets!

    I took myself off the list, but I can make it after all. I have my ticket already - I'll be at the meeting spot at 7pm.

    Due to the bad weather and the late time the movie finishes, I won't be doing any after-movie gathering. So you may want to grab a bite before the film. I will be in the AMC food court around 6:30pm in the seats near Subway restaurant if you want to join me.

    Hey Phil,

    I took myself off the list due to the weather. If it settles down I may still join you.

    Thanks, Roy.

    Hi all, meetup has change the RSVP comments feature. Now any time you fill in that box when you make an RSVP choice, it posts the message on the wall. If you could just leave the RSVP comments box blank when you say Yes or change to No, that would be great. I don't want any more emails being generated beyond what we already get when we post on the wall. thanks!
