Trivia

The Tarot cards used by Wiladene (Janeane Garofalo) are the Five of Swords, High Priestess, Death, Page of Swords, and Ten of Swords. The exact interpretation is unknown. See more »

Goofs

When the girls are looking for articles from 1945 in the newspaper Roberta finds an article about her mother's death. Her mother would have had to have died after 1958, therefore Roberta shouldn't have seen the article unless she wasn't actually searching in 1945 like her friends were. See more »

Quotes

Samantha: You can run from the dissapointments you're trying to forget. But its only when you embrace your past that you truly move forward. Maybe Thomas Wolfe never got to go home again, but I found my way there. And I'm glad I did.

Even Though It's A Girl's Movie, I Liked It.
14 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews



Now and Then is a good film that has a likeable cast and is funny and expresses friendship. Yes, it is definetley a girl's movie, but even though, I enjoyed it. The movie is like Stand By Me, except it shows girls's perspectives. The film is a good and fun movie to watch for fun. I give Now and Then a 9 out of 10. :)
