Movie Info

In this timely and funny comeback story, St. Elmo's Fire screenwriter Carl Kurlander moves back home only to discover both himself and his hometown to be in mid-life crisis. Armed with a cranky cameraman, funded by his dermatologist, and battling his wife who longs to return to the sunny West Coast, Carl asks his neighbors from Steeler Franco Harris to the girl who inspired St. Elmo's Fire,how cities like Pittsburgh which built America with its steel, conquered polio, and invented everything from aluminum to the Big Mac, can reinvent themselves. "A cross between Woody Allen and Fred Rogers, Kurlander reminds us that our cities are where we can best renew ourselves, our country, and our hope for all humanity." - Howard Fineman, Newsweek

At one point, Kurlander shows his spouse blowing bubbles. It's that kind of movie. He misses few opportunities to cutesify.
