Kristy McNichol is a daughter who never had a childhood. Marsha Mason is a mother who never grew up. And when they get together, they're the most mismatched roomates since "The Goodbye Girl". See more »
The name of the play that Georgia (Marsha Mason) was performing in was "Only When I Laugh". As such, this film represents an instance where the title of a play-within-a-movie is also the title of the movie. See more »
When Georgia arrives home from re-hab she waits outside her apartment door holding a full bouquet of pink roses and baby's breath wrapped in green tissue paper. The grouping of the pink roses and the baby's breath changes remarkably after she enters her apartment. See more »
Kristie McNichol is a wonderful actress, also in this movie,I grew up watching her on TV and in movies,I wish she would come out of retirement from acting,also, because now my daughter likes her "old" movies. This movie is wonderful for moms and teens, even if your life isn't like the caricatures. LOOOOVE IIIIIIT !!! Also Marsha Mason and the rest of the cast are just as wonderful. Kristie and Marshas caricatures are believable as mother and daughter, and very funny together. A very good movie I recommend it. But still can't find it to buy on DVD. Hopefully it will be released soon. Hollywood don't make movies like this anymore.
