Now and Then is successful, but only now and then.

Standard coming of age story, the adult gimmick doesn't add anything.

Audience Reviews for Now and Then

Dull rather than bad. Good cast, particularly the younger girls. Thora Birch and Christina Ricci are always good. The older cast not so good. The 60's setting for the flashbacks didn't personally resonate for me, but I imagine they might for some who grew up in this era, with the outfits and soundtrack. The story is just too plodding and doesn't really go anywhere. I watched this all the way through when it was first released and remember being bored and unimpressed. I wondered if time and age might have softened my opinion. Unfortunately, I still find it a snoozefest. Gave up on it this time around 40 minutes in.

I really should not like this incredibly stupid movie, but I do. II can't help it, I'm a sucker for girl power reunion movies, no matter how formula they get. And I love how they just sort of pair up toward the end, and then separate, and then return. But seriously: Rosie O'Donnell as Christina Ricci grown up, what the hell?

Interesting that only 19% of critics liked "Now and Then", yet 78% of Flixster users liked it. I am in the 78%. It is always interesting to see the kid and adult version of the same person in a movie, although I had to write a few notes to remember which kid was which adult. To me the adults the writer created from the four kids we are introduced to made sense.
