The Big Chill

The Big Chill (movie) is a huge hit from 1983 and stars many great actors - William Hurt, Glenn Close, Kevin Kline, Jeff Goldlum, Tom Berenger, Meg Tilly, Jobeth Williams, Mary Kay Place. It’s about a bunch of friends who get together after a friend dies.

I was 13 when this movie came out and so not interested in seeing a movie about a bunch of old people dancing around to old people music.

This weekend, I see The Big Chill on my Dish guide playing on Encore – Encore was having a "Big 80’s Weekend".

I decided to dvr it. What can I say, I’m a sucker for classic movies.
When I finally got the chance to watch, I noticed something weird. These people were not the “old” people I remember at all. They were actually only in their late 30’s/early 40’s.

WOW!!!! Crazy how 28 years can change your perspective.

Oh, and by the way, the music… CLASSIC.

LOL! It sure is. I didn't love it but I loved that it is really a time piece and statement of the '80's. What a young Jeff Goldblum and Kevin Kline!

Nice meeting you. Great post. I look forward to more. I'm you newest "friend"

Hi There Mona! I love this movie. I found myself chuckling when I read your profile because we have so much in common...the moving around a lot when we're younger and wanting to stay in one place so our kids don't have to do that, 2 boys, bodily function jokes, etc... I'm your newest follower and glad to have found you.
