Late for Dinner
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
In the innocent days of 1962, Willie (Brian Wimmer, 'China Beach's' 'Boonie') marries Joy (Marcia Gay Harden, 'Miller's Crossing'), the girl of his dreams. But the young lovers' hopes are shattered when a sleazeball land developer (Peter Gallagher, 'sex, lies and videotape") frames Willie and his best friend Frank (Peter Berg, "Shocker"). On the run for a crime they didn't commit, the two buddies end up caught in the biggest chill ever: guinea pigs in a dangerous cryonics experiment. Frozen alive. And they don't thaw out until 1991. It's 1991. Frank and Willie haven't aged a day, but everything else has changed, including Willie's only love, who's now in her fifties. But if love indeed does conquer all, Willie and Joey will have the chance to share their once-in-a-lifetime romance.
Definitely a great chick flick with a little extra sci-fi thrown in for good measure!
I loved this movie when it came out years ago and still do. The plot is somewhat ridiculous, but the performances and the dialogue are really well done. Great heart warming love story, a bit cheezy - yes, but wonderful all the same!
Late for Dinner
Very nicely done. Worth every minute.
Charming performances all around
I, too, saw this film when it first came out and am thrilled to be able to own it on iTunes. While some might fight the story entirely unbelievable, the performances by all the leads, particularly Peter Berg and Marcia Gay-Harden, is top notch. This love story is sweet and innocent. It might remind many of times gone by and lost love. It's beautiful, charming and in the end, you will feel "good" and glad you watched it. Share with a loved one, have a nice meal and cuddle. You'll be glad you did.
