Quotes

Duncan Sheperd: Clay, I don't want to be here. Did you see all those people out there? I heard many of them talking about how great their lives are. Everyone has the BMW's, the fancy jobs, the houses. I'm just here because you wanted to come and you're my best friend and so I can keep an eye on you and make sure you don't have another episode.
Clay Mellon: I'm not going to have an episode. I took my lithium. At least I think I took it.
Duncan Sheperd: What am I gonna say when they ask me what I'm doing now? I went bankrupt? I'm unemployed...

Talented ensemble boost air-light script
4 April 1999 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Class reunion films always have the potential to be good entertainment, unfortunately most don't deliver. 'Since You've Been Gone' thankfully does.. .And doesn't.

It has its moments of genuine humor, but it also tries to be quirky and even sentimental. It doesn't always succeed, but more than not. It helps that it has a talented cast.

Relative unknowns Phillip Rayburn Smith, Laura Eason, and Thom Cox give standout performances, while the more recognizable faces of Teri Hatcher and David Schwimmer (who also directed) do not have much to go on.

Surprisingly, the films scene-stealer is its most under-written character, Grace, the class beauty/psycho. You can't help but chuckle when Lara Flynn Boyle comes on screen. It's then you know you can count on a laugh. No reason is ever given for her wicked behavior, but after a while, you won't care. Just further proof that the always sexy Boyle handles comedy just as easily as the heavy stuff.

Look for inspired cameos from Marisa Tomei, Jon Stewart, Molly Ringwald and the post nose-job Jennifer Grey (whom after watching this with friends realized I am the ONLY person who recognized her).
