Movie Info

Adapted from the novel by Anne Tyler, the made-for-TV "Hallmark Hall of Fame" presentation Back When We Were Grownups stars Blythe Danner as 53-year-old Baltimore widow Rebecca Davitch. Having long since given up her dreams of college to get married and raise a family, and also having abandoned all of her other goals and ambitions in order to manage her family's catering business, Rebecca is attending an engagement party for her stepdaughter when it suddenly strikes her that she has, in the words of the film's press release, "been living the wrong life!" Thus begins Rebecca's quest to reclaim her lost youth -- with her childhood sweetheart Will Allenby (Peter Fonda) figuring prominently in Rebecca's "second wind." Boasting a star-studded supporting cast (Faye Dunaway, Jack Palance, Nina Foch, Peter Reigert, Ione Skye), Back When We Were Grownups was first broadcast November 21, 2004, on CBS.

Audience Reviews for Back When We Were Grownups

Hallmark Hall of Shame movie. Sometimes Hallmark makes good to great TV films but this isn't one of them except maybe for the ending Another Anne Tyler book based film which did not transfer to film well for me. Peter Fonda appears midway thru the film and surely shows his age now in his 70's. He does a convincing role of a jilted teenage lover of the lead actress Danner who does a great job of being a overworked head of her numerous dysfunctional family. Faye Dunnaway makes a mere cameo appearance so don't be fooled into watching this one because of her. This was just about close to being a waste of 98 minutes for me though it is done well and the women are unhappy except for our ever kind Danner. Flashbacks throughout the entire film tend to be distracting but you get the idea after a half hour of them. Nothing disturbing in this film. Maybe thats why I barely held interest. ---- Monsieur Rick
