Twice In A Lifetime Review


Weak
Gene Hackman as tender steelworker/father in Seattle? We don't think so either, and this movie's ultimate plotline -- about Hackman's falling out with wife Ellen Burstyn and falling in with local hussie Ann-Margret, just doesn't play well today. It probably didn't play well in 1985, either, which is why you haven't heard of it. Despite a few interesting performances from some of cinema's biggest names, this one still merits a pass.
