Description: Francis Ford (The Godfather, Apocalypse Now) Coppola's 1986 comedy stars Kathleen Turner as an unhappy, middle-aged woman who goes back in time to her high school years and meets her future husband (Nicolas Cage) all over again.

Ever found yourself saying "if only I could go back to school knowing what I know now"? (Or that is, if you've already left school.)

We all like to daydream about how we would handle situations in our past if we have had some foresight. Like R.E.M. sings: "It's crazy what you could have had." Peggy Sue Got Married plays around with this concept: a 42-year-old woman (played by Kathleen Turner) is fantastically transferred back to her past as a 17-year-old teenager.

Unlike Back to the Future in which Michael J. Fox travels back in time to the 1950s to meet his parents, Turner is reincarnated as herself. Except she knows exactly what is going to happen to her and other people. However, the question is: will things turn out to be any different than it was?

A well-acted romantic comedy, Peggy Sue Got Married is the perfect date movie. Rent it tonight and impress your girlfriend . . .
