No Looking Back

Critics Consensus

Edward Burns' first foray into melodrama is too dour to arise passion, suffering from a lack of narrative direction and romantic chemistry.

Movie Info

The story centers on Claudia (Lauren Holly), a woman who has a steady relationship with Michael (Jon Bon Jovi), and a steady job at the local diner. While her dreams take her far beyond this small, seaside town, her mother's (Blythe Danner) depression over a failed marriage, as well as her bond with her sister Kelly (Connie Britton), keep Claudia from straying too far from home. It is the unexpected return of Claudia's ex-boyfriend Charlie (Edward Burns) that forces her to re-examine her life.

    There isn't enough in the Ed Burns film canon. The jack of all trades brings his all to his acting roles. Unfortunately he writes his own stinker to muddle through and hiring Bon Jovi as a co-actor doesn't help particularly.

    What a good cast this movie has from Ed Burns and Lauren Holly. No Looking Back gives a realistic glimpse into an everday group of friends in a small sea side town in NJ.
