IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES
1984, Paramount, 113 min, USA, Dir: Charles Shyer

Caught between her movie director father (Ryan O'Neal) and writer mother (Shelley Long), both of whom are more focused on career than family, Drew Barrymore tries to divorce her parents in this underrated comedic gem. Both Long and Barrymore earned Golden Globe nominations for their performances, and the flashback-driven script, penned by the PRIVATE BENJAMIN team of Charles Shyer and Nancy Meyers, offers a perceptive take on Hollywood as well as an affecting look at stressful relationships. With Sharon Stone. “One of the funnier and more intelligent movies of 1984. … This movie has been written with so much wit and imagination that even obligatory scenes have a certain freshness and style.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
