Trivia

At one point, one of the girls sarcastically asks, "What are you, a pod person?" This is a reference to the sci-fi horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), which would have been quite popular among twelve-year-old girls and other young people during the period portrayed in the film.

All-star cast. All-good film.
15 April 2001 | by (Palmerston North, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

'Now And Then' is about a group of women who return to their old treehouse and reminisce about the one summer that truly changed their lives...

With an all star cast, 'Now And Then' features Melanie Griffith, Demi Moore, Rita Wilson and Rosie O'Donnell, with Thora Birch, Gaby Hoffman, Ashleigh Aston Moore and Christina Ricci playing their younger counterparts.

Teen star Christina Ricci ('Casper', 'The Adams Family') is great - as is Ricci's 'Gold Diggers' co-star, Ashleigh Aston Moore - as the mis-informed Chrissy. Bonnie Hunt ('Jumangi') and Devon Sawa ('Wild America') also star.

The story is great - plenty of laughs to be had here, with sad moments, too. The acting is A-Grade (the young girls look very promising) and the finished product is a film all the cast should be proud of.
