Storyline

After Woody's Uncle Fergie has a mugging filled trip to Boston. Woody's father thinks that Boston is too dangerous a place for his son. And he wants him to return back home to Indiana. The gang at the bar thinks that introducing Woody's friends through the making of a home movie, would settle Woody's father's concerns. The first attempt has Diane as writer, director and cinematographer. Her "cast" rebels at the unnatural, for them dialog in Diane's script. They fire her, and she then separates herself from the project. The final product of the second attempt has Woody shown individually with each of his friends. Each, against their own natural settings: Sam in his office. Carla at a backyard BBQ, with her rambunctious kids. Cliff on his postal route. Norm at the Hungry Heifer, and Frasier at his psychiatry practice's office. After watching it. They each agrees that they all come off as boobs. Except for Diane. She sees this version as the start of something great. To her, all it needs... Written by Huggo

[Diane has just shown her edited version of Sam's home movie. It's awful]
Diane Chambers: [about why she gave herself the only end credit in the movie] It's just that I felt I transformed your film into a personal statement that was pure Diane Chambers.
Carla Tortelli: It was pure something.

Cheers: The Motion Picture (#5.24)
27 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Woody's dad wants to get him back from Chicago after his uncle got mugged twice when visiting. So the gang decides to prepare a video to send to his dad to convince him. They fight with Diane and make their own film that kind of sucks, so she edits the video and sends it, but it doesn't help.

So many awesome moments in this movie! The whole scene with a puppy who now has to die was adorable and hilarious! Diane's movie made me laugh to my tears. Frasier was an absolutely perfect character as he always is.

And the twist at the end was pretty great as well.
