Trivia

Peter Boyle's character in T.R. Baskin works for a fictional company called Con-Amalgamate. Con-Amalgamate would re-appear in later films penned by Peter Hyams. In Capricorn One (1978), Con-Amalgamate is the company whose "made-in-America screw-up" is allegedly responsible for the astronauts being grounded under false pretenses. In Outland (1981), Con-Amalgamate is the corporation that is mining the Jupiter moon Io. Ironically, Peter Boyle also stars in Outland as the corporate head of Io's branch of the corrupt Con-Amalgamate company. See more »

A comedy-drama with the ring of truth.
26 April 2001 | by (Burbank, CA) – See all my reviews

This film is in some ways a guilty pleasure--it's occasionally hokey--but I like it because it reminds me of the wonder I felt on my first few visits to Chicago (I'm a small-town girl too). I eventually moved there, staying more than a decade

before moving on to L.A.; my experience was, on the whole, much more positive than T.R.'s, but I can relate to her and to what she's going through. That's a good deal of this movie's appeal--the characters and the situations all have the ring of truth. Kudos to writer Peter Hyams and director Herbert Ross. T.R. may be lonely and lacking in direction, but she's also intelligent, feisty, and nobody's fool, and it's easy to understand how she feels as she tries to build an independent life and find personal and professional satisfaction. Candice Bergen's delivery of her lines is sometimes a bit stilted, but her performance is largely praiseworthy; so are those of the supporting cast, especially Marcia Rodd, James Caan, Peter Boyle, and Howard Platt (very convincing as a real jerk). The filmmakers also make good use of the Chicago setting, with shots of Carson's State Street store, the el, and other landmarks, and the movie's full of early-'70s atmosphere--the clothes, the music, the singles bars, and the fact that the modern women's

movement had a lot of work to do.
