Then. And Now.

Now and Then (1995)
Written by:  I. Marlene King
Directed by:  Leslie Linka Glatter
Starring:  Demi Moore & Gaby Hoffman as Samantha; Rosie O'Donnell & Christina Ricci as Roberta; Melanie Griffith & Thora Birch as Teeny; Rita Wilson & Ashleigh Aston Moore as Chrissy

Synopsis:  As 12 year-olds in 1970, four best friends make a pact to always be there for one another. Now adults, the four women gather together in anticipation of the birth of Chrissy's first child and reminisce about that special summer in their childhood.

I feel almost embarrassed to say I had never seen this movie before last night. My friends were appalled and promptly forced me to watch it.  They swore it was my kind of movie, and I did think it was adorable. I particularly loved the part of the movie that took place in 1970 -- great sets and costumes. And the music was phenomenal!

I was most disappointed in the scenes with the girls as adults.  There was not quite enough information given about what these four had been up to since the summer of 1970. I also did NOT like that Rita Wilson's character was still basically living in the past. She basically became a caricature of herself. Despite those few problems, it was a fun and enjoyable movie.
