Peggy Sue Got Married


An adult spin on Back To The Future, Francis Ford Coppola's 1986 comedy-drama features Kathleen Turner as Peggy Sue, a woman who gets a second chance at life when she's transported back to 1960. Featuring a host of then-unknowns (Helen Hunt, Jim Carrey), it's the deeply peculiar performance from Coppola's nephew Nicolas Cage that grabs the attention.


There are good performances and a few laugh-out-loud moments, but Coppola can't decide if he's making a chirpy nostalgia-fest or serious character piece. Peggy Sue Got Married also signalled the start of his inexorable directorial decline. Entertaining but lightweight.
