Maxie DVD For Sale 1985 Glenn Close Mandy Patinkin R1
DVD Synopsis and information:
Close makes her starring debut in the role of Jan in this odd Body Swap
comedy. This was one of the body switch movies that trended strong in
the 80s. Close sensed a special potential in playing a high minded San
Francisco wife and conservative Catholic Arch Bishop's assistant whose
body is somehow possessed by a free spirited 20s guy. This a more than
amiable and somewhat old fashioned comedy that has some great moments of
fun and charm. Jan her librarian husband Nick, played by Mandy
Patinkin, find out Maxie's past in their spacious Victorian style home.
old lady neighbor, played fabulously by the immortal Ruth Gordon, her
final role, tells the couple that Maxie was on the verge of being a
silent film star when she was killed in in an automobile accident in
1927. Maxie is a really fun switcheroo or body takeover movie, take your
pick. Patinkin is also terrific in his role as Jan's husband. Maxie's
coming into Jan continues to live on and her ghost form begins to occupy
Jan's body more frequently. This sends her spouse Nick into a freakout
when Maxie pops in at the most inappropriate times. Maxie simply needs
another shot at being a star and she hopes to get her chance in a remake
of Cleopatra with uncredited role by Harry Hamlin (Clash Of The Titans)
playing Marc Antony. Don't forget about the cute basset hound in the
movie, even the dog is funny.
When Maxie DVD takes over Jan there are always surprises and
laughs to be had. Close and Patinkin and hilarious in this comedy. This
is a fun 80s comedy with lots of laughs. Laughs and kooky humor are
abundant. Maxie and Jan will keep your guessing until the end. A
refreshing performance from both stars. Close does a great job in both
her roles as Jan and Maxie. Patinkin plays very well off close's antics.
Comedy and the supernatural mix very well together in Maxie. Prepare to
laugh and have your heart warmed. 80s comedy movie fans will have to
add this to their collections. Maxie 1985 DVD is a terrific 80s comedy.
Maxie DVD is a fantastic 80s comedy.
