Scooping five Oscars - including Best Picture – James L. Brooks’ comedy-melodrama still looks every inch the winner.
Covering 30 years of a loving/strained relationship between a mother (Shirley MacLaine) and daughter (Debra Winger), its soppy story is freed from cheap tear-jerking by Brooks’ confident direction, Larry McMurtry’s poignant script and a flawless ensemble.
Jeff Daniels, John Lithgow and Danny DeVito threaten to upstage – until Jack Nicholson does it without trying.
