More than Friends
Childhood friends in the Bronx during the 1950s and '60s, Alan Corkus (Rob Reiner, TV's "All in the Family") and Maddy Pearlman (Penny Marshall, TV's "Laverne & Shirley") grew into awkward teenagers who attended their Senior Prom together. Despite their crossing paths again at City College, where a mutual initiation to sex helps their friendship grow into love, they never seem able to express their true feelings for each other. Years later, both have gone their separate ways, each finding frustration in love and career. When Maddy's love affair with a fellow actor ends disastrously, she surprises Alan with a visit, and the two decide to move in together. But the road to bliss is bumpy, and Maddy decides to move on again, leaving Alan unhappily trying to have relationships with other women, only to have Maddy return again... This charming comedy about their on-and-off relationship, and the bittersweet nature of love between friends – directed by Jim Burrows and from a screenplay by Reiner and Phil Mishkin – is a realistic take on the perils and pitfalls of modern romance. Newly remastered.
