July 30, 2013
No masterpiece, but it at least imparts an important perspective about nostalgia.
September 28, 2012
The film often soars into the imaginary heavens of delight but then just as quickly sputters and crash lands due to Coppola's leaden helming.
December 14, 2008
This prom-night balloon of a movie floats easily above the year's other exercises in '50s nostalgia. If you dare reach for it, it will land smartly in your heart.
December 14, 2008
A charming little comedy grounded in an irresistable performance from Kathleen Turner.
December 11, 2007
It's grave, lumbering, arrhythmic, and bloated, an emotional hogwallow of catchpenny insights and easy sentimentality.
December 11, 2007
The movie has many lovely moments and just as many dead spots, but its strengths make this atypical film from Francis Coppola a worthwhile viewing experience.

What makes this treatment unique is that the jokes aren't so much derivative of pop culture, but are instead found in the learned wisdom of a middle-aged woman reacting to her own teenage dilemmas.
April 4, 2007
Centering on a female protag (well-played by Kathleen Turner) and dealing with a similar universal fantasy of revisiting your past, Coppola's small-town fable is a wonderful companion piece to Back to the Future, which was released a year earlier.

Coppola displays a rare light and comedic touch in this charmer.
| Original Score: 3/5

Ignore the ridiculous happy ending of this film, and you have a much more fatalistic exercise in which Coppola eschews easy laughs in favour of the exposure of feeling and the fact that these people's lives, however empty, matter to them.

Nicolas Cage lets the comedy rip. "You mean my wang?"
| Original Score: 4/5
June 11, 2005
One of the best romantic comedies of the 80's...."Back to the Future" meets "Somewhere in Time"
| Original Score: 3/5
August 18, 2004
A very entertaining and involving movie boasting a cornucopia of delightful comic moments and scenes which go straight for the heart.

July 10, 2003
Twisted, touching and a great vehicle for Turner
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
Miss Turner's self-assured comic timing goes a long way toward salvaging the film, providing both moral and physical dimension to a role that scarcely exists.

February 19, 2003
A glimpse of James Carrey
| Original Score: 2/5
February 2, 2003
One of Coppola's least overbearing films, but not overwhelmingly good.
| Original Score: 3/5
September 10, 2002
Peggy Sue Got maried isn't a perfect film, but it sure makes you feel good.

January 1, 2000
This time Coppola apparently simply wanted to make a movie, and put some characters on the screen, and tell a story. He has, all right. This is one of the best movies of the year.

Here you don't see Coppola the camera wizard, you see Coppola the storyteller, the maker of fables. And by the end, you don't feel warmly just toward the movie, but toward the man behind it.
