A seminal Thirty-Something movie in which a group of old college friends who are now older and experienced come together for the funeral of Alex, who was at one time the brightest and the best of them at college and yet who never managed to find his way. The friends use the occasion to reacquaint themselves with each other, discuss where their lives have led and speculate on what happened to their idealism which had been abundant when they were younger.Written by

I know this is hard but it's all beautiful.
Yeah we put on a great funeral here.
Yeah, maybe I'll have mine here.
We give first priority to people who kill themselves in one of our bathrooms.

That was a terrible thing to say... I don't know why I said that.

In the original, in the nighttime scene under the dock with Karen and Sam, after Sam explains why their relationship wouldnt work, Karen says "don't give me that shit!". For the network version, its changed to "Don't Give me that Junk!". See more »
It took a little while for me to really get into the film, but in the end, I was hooked. Once I got to know a little about each of the characters, I found it hard not to care about each and every one of them. Yes, it was dialogue-heavy, but once I liked the people on-screen, the conversations became rather engrossing. Even if lots of talking doesn't sound too appealing, I still think you should give it a look, because it isn't too often that a film has a cast that is so hugely talented. And of course, this film has one of the greatest soundtracks in movie history, and these songs seem to fit the mood perfectly. I had high expectations for this film, and although it wasn't quite what I had expected, this film did not disappoint.
