A funny, touching, beautifully acted film that covers more territory than it can easily manage.

There's no doubt in my mind that there is more art to be found in a week's worth of General Hospital re-runs.

Terms of Endearment (1983) is a comedy/drama classic, an entertaining film, but also a manipulative, soap-opera tearjerker..
