I really enjoyed this. I watched it once, then watched it again on a rainy afternoon, then lay on the couch and then thought about the ideas -- which aren't anything you don't already know, but they are things that we sometimes forget. Live life to the limit.
what a lovely feel good movie - yes it does make you sit back and take a look at yourself. Sometimes we l tend to take people and life for granted.
Disappointing. Too many preachy speeches. Characters unconvincing.
Its a great story. We learn the real meaning of life. A Excellent role by Jack Lemmon
I read the book years ago, crying into my pillow as I did! It was a beautiful story - and that it was true made it even more beautiful.
When I saw it on the lists at quickflix my first instinct was to jump on it. Then trepadition set in, as it often does when you watch movies made from a favoured book.
But this movie did the story great justice and left us all in tears and big red noses.
It was brilliantly acted by Jack Lemon and Hank Azaria, aweseom to see the latter in a dramatic role and do it well!
Only watch with a box of tissues at the ready and in good company.
There aren't any special features on the DVD (unless you count stills from the movie and a word from Oprah) and, disappointingly, no subtitles either.
But don't miss this movie!
Beautiful story which warms the soul. I haven't read the book yet, but plan to after seeing the movie.
Way too overdone and sentimental. My grandmother would have liked this film. Hank Azaria is usually worth watching but even so, I couldn't sit through the whole thing.
This is about life. You really have to be in the mood for drama to watch this so your emotion will go along with the movie. I bought this movie after watching it and it has become my favourite movie of all time. "When you learn to embrace death, you will learn to live".
A good heart warming story with a message.
Not sure what the rest of the reviewers saw, but this was the worst piece of sugary crap I've ever seen. The introduction from Oprah should have been sufficient warning. Tuesdays with Morrie worked every cliché you can think of. If you want a telly movie that has more 'life lessons' and syrupy one-liners than you can poke a stick at then Tuesdays with Morrie is for YOU!!
Good feel good movie. Will recommend.
Every thinking persons experiance will parallel this story in some way. It puts in words that which we all may be uncomforable to express. After all theres not one of us excempt from the subject of dying. Well depicted. Excellent acting.
This is a chance to look inside yourself. Morrie will make you cry. It will hurt but you will feel better IF you act on it.
Watch this movie and get a good lesson about life. This movie makes you reflex and think about yourself and life itself!!!! Well done!!!
