#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – A seminal Thirty-Something movie in which a group of old college friends who are now all grown up and hardened by the big wide world come together for the funeral of Alex, a barely glimpsed corpse, who was at one time the brightest and the best of them, and yet who never managed to achieve half as much as any of the others. The friends use the occasion to reacquaint themselves with each other and to speculate as to what happened to their idealism which had been abundant when they were younger.
Plot: Seven old college friends gather for a weekend reunion after the funeral of one of their own.

Jeez, it isn’t THAT bad!
Yes, I hate yuppies just as much as the next guy. And yes, I see all the flaws in this movie. But this movie IS telling the truth about the Baby Boomers, in my eyes, not glorifying them. By that I mean that it tells the story of a group people who THOUGHT they were idealistic when they were young and stoned, only to grow up (and sober up) a little to find out they are as shallow, fake, and greedy as their parents. Some of them are so jarred by this realization that they become depressed and maybe even kill themselves, as their friend did.
So the “talky, plastic” characters AREN’T the result of bad acting or bad writing. They’re accurately portraying a generation so full of itself and hot air that it IS talky and plastic, see?
I especially like the character playing JoBeth Williams’ husband. He steps into the movie, utters prophetic truth while eating a sandwich, and steps out, leaving the yuppies in the audience stunned. The soundtrack is good, but it becomes kind of transparent and commercial-y after a while. I give the movie a B-.
Things to watch for: cynical product placement (Miller Beer, Nike shoes, etc.); Meg Tilly’s body; Kevin Kline’s come-and-go accent.
