The tragi-comedy never made me reach for my hankie, never tickled my funny bone and it never found a way into my heart.

There's not enough substance to support the sentiment of this longish comedy-drama.

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.

[Writer-director James L. Brooks] has television in his soul: his people are incredibly tiny (most are defined by a single stroke of obsessive behavior), and he chokes out his narrative in ten-minute chunks, separated by aching lacunae.

Its soppy story is freed from cheap tear-jerking by Brooks' confident direction, Larry McMurtry's poignant script and a flawless ensemble.

The most remarkable achievement of Terms of Endearment, which is filled with great achievements, is its ability to find the balance between the funny and the sad, between moments of deep truth and other moments of high ridiculousness.

A heartfelt, sobby, strongly-acted character-driven story, the film is small in scope, but deep in meaning and emotion.

Brooks' dialog is wonderful throughout and all the characters carry off their assignments beautifully, even down to Danny De Vito and Norman Bennett as MacLaine's other suffering suitors.
