"Oh, Ma...Chanel No.5 Always Makes Me Think Of Home" - Peggy Sue
What a great movie! Originally intended for Debra Winger, but Kathleen Turner is wonderful as the title character Peggy Sue. It's a time-travel movie about a 42 year old woman who gets transported back in time to high school (circa early 1960's). Who wouldn't love an opportunity like that, not to mention being 18 again?? My favorite scene is when she walks back into her house, & sees her mom young again, while that beautiful music plays on the soundtrack. It's so touching & heartfelt. This movie has it all. Great acting, comedy, drama, fantasy, & a good story. Nicholas Cage can get annoying at times, but he felt this was the best way to portray his character (Charlie). He gets to "sing" in this movie too ("He Don't Love You"). Look for a very early performance by Jim Carrey. The cast also includes Helen Hunt & Catherine Hicks (the mom on the TV show "7th Heaven").
