The scene where the car breaks down, after Aurora, Rosie and Teddy had visited Tommy, was filmed on the coldest day that Houston had seen in 10 years, but the characters were to appear hot and sweating. See more »
When Tommy is about to leave from a visit with his grandmother, he covers the brownies she brought him with tissue paper. A second later, we see him doing the same exact thing with the same paper. See more »
Now when this movie first came out, no one really saw it. Critics gave it bad reviews. Part of the issue was the original Terms of Endearment was made back in 1983. So when some of the cast came back 13 years later, it can lose some of its box office draw. However, the time that passed actually made this movie more believable as the characters had also aged. Shirley MacLaine reprises her role and does a nice job, trying to raise her dead daughter's children. The movie stays grounded by dealing with everyday issues as well as getting older and the trials of a non-traditional family. Paxton plays a nice role in this film adding a little flare to the shadowing plot of Shirley MacLaine's character getting older. Nicholson's return, although brief, helped this film round itself out. See this one only if you see Terms of Endearment first.
Best Scene: Nicholson and MacLaine re-living the past on the beach.
