Terms of Endearment
1983
**½
Director: James L. Brooks
Cast: Shirley MacLaine, Jack Nicholson, Debra Winger, Jeff Daniels

This funny but overly sentimental tearjerker about a widow and her daughter was showered with Oscars. The award winning performances by Shirley MacLaine and Jack Nicholson are good. Based on Larry McMurtry’s novel.
