Four childhood friends, now in their thirties, are having a reunion. Their lives have gone separate and very different ways. Together again they reminisce about their younger years, especially the eventful period when they were 12 years old.Written by
When the adult Chrissy is scanning the front cover of "People" with Teeny on the cover, the smaller headline at the top reads, "Linda Richman tells all in new autobiography!" with a picture of Mike Myers dressed as his famous Saturday Night Live (1975) character. See more »
In the scene where the boys are skinny-dipping in the lake, the rope-swing by the trees disappears in one shot and then reappears. See more »
Teeny's parents were country-clubbers that were never around - typical upbringing for actors and pathological liars.

The version shown on ABC in late 2002 (as well as the versions shown on the Superstation and TNT) omits the scene where Samantha's mother makes them all hide under the kitchen table while Cloris Leachman's character bangs on the front door. See more »
"Now and Then" is very simular to "Stand by Me". Thats why I saw it. It is a girlie film but I did enjoy it and even own a copy! It's only flaw- it's cliched (but hey, I'm a horror fan, so I really shouldn't complain!). Four friends all aged 12, an over- weight kid that gets picked on. The four friends have to cope with loss, death and of course.... adolescence. All these things were brought up in "Stand by Me". Despite "Now and Then"'s flaws, it is, in general, a great coming of age flick. Well acted and has a great cast of young and adult actors. The comedy is better in this film than it is in Reiner's 1986 hit. And seeing as this is a comedy, it delivers. A fun filled ride into adolescence!
