Synopsis:

Fresh off the success of his television series TAXI, James L Brooks came to the big screen with his directorial debut: a comic film culminating in a main character succumbing to cancer. That certainly doesn't sound like the most promising comedy material but TERMS OF ENDEARMENT is a success in both comedy and drama. It is a very funny film that ends up a tearjerker without ever sacrificing the humor.

The mother and daughter act of Aurora (Shirley MacLaine) and Emma (Debra Winger) are at the heart of the story. The mother is consistently over-protective and disappointed in her daughter. Emma is one of the most compassionate human beings in the cinematic world. When Emma ups and marries the wrong guy (Jeff Daniels) there relationship becomes one of the phone lines. Even that doesn't squelch Aurora's power of her daughter. But when Aurora finally dates her free-spirited neighbor (Jack Nicholson), she softens as a human being and backs off of.

Terms of Endearment captivates me with the believable relationship of mother and daughter as brilliantly portrayed by
Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger. It covers approximately 30 years of the turbulent yet loving relationship between mom Aurora and daughter Emma. They have their differences; yet the love between them is always so obvious. It's also refreshing how they seem to be able to talk about anything with each other, even their sex lives.

I've seen this movie several times, and every time I cry at the end. In spite of the death, the movie ends on a positive note, giving us the feeling that life is going on and everything is going to be okay. The budding relationship between Aurora and her neighbor (also brilliantly portrayed by Jack Nicholson) creates a plot-within-a-plot that is very entertaining and provides some comic relief from the sadness of the relationship between Emma and her husband and children.

The most interesting aspect is that Emma gets so bent out of shape when she finds out that her husband has been cheating on her, when she has been cheating on him as well. Somehow though we sympathize with Emma and her gentle lover (played by the very talented John Lithgow). We feel like they belong together and somehow their relationship doesn't seem wrong.

If you are in the mood for a movie that is entertaining and gut-wrenching at the same time, this is a perfect choice.
