Synopsis: The friendship between two life-long girlfriends is put to the test when one starts a family and the other falls ill.
Release Date: TBD 2015
Thoughts: I love the movie Beaches. There, it’s out there for all to read. Yep, it’s one of those “chick flicks” that require a box of Kleenex and a god hug from someone you love when it’s over…but it does the trick time and time again. I mention this because having seen the trailer for Miss You Already several times now I keep thinking how much this feels like a Beaches for a new generation. Toni Collette (Tammy) is the friend that seems to be dying with dignity while Drew Barrymore (Blended) takes on the supportive chum that dries her tears. Hopefully director Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) can throw a few curveballs our way because while this looks like it could be fitfully entertaining, it also gives off a whiff of an also-ran affair. Maybe it’s just that Barrymore seems so out of place here (no shocker since she got the role after both Jennifer Aniston and Rachel Weisz bowed out) but it’s Collette that will get my butt in the seat.
