If you could live your life all over again, would you change anything? Kathleen Turner, portraying Peggy Sue, gets the chance to answer this tantalising question in Francis Ford Coppola's acclaimed romantic comedy. Co-starring Joan Allen, Nicolas Cage, Helen Hunt, and Jim Carrey, PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED is a humourous, heartfelt fantasy about the golden opportunity almost everyone has longed for at least once.

My Thoughts:
I haven't watched this movie since I first got it in 2003. I was not so impressed with it then. I didn't remember anything about it when I rewatched it now. It is a nice enough movie but far from being a favorite of mine.
It is a romantic comedy without being funny or romantic (in my opinion).
You can see here early appearances by Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey and Helen Hunt.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



My Thoughts:


PILOT
Ellen takes outlandish steps to correct a bad driver's license photo.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed watching this one. I forgot how funny this series was. Surprisingly I only have the first season in my collection so far. I will have to look into getting more seasons before too long.
