I was so excited to get this movie; hoping for a fun, family flick! Very disappointed that the language was so obscene in the first 5 min, that I pulled it and threw it away. Great potential, but we have kids in our home and try hard to only get movies that we can watch together.

I love this movie, and I will keep this copy to watch over and over. The story is entertaining, and all the actors are great. I loved hearing Bette Middler sing! I'm surprised not to see Danny Nucci listed as one of the actors above. He was great! I also really liked David Rasche and of course the wonderful Dennis Farina.

"There are so many scenes in this delightful farce that I would love to describe in detail, but I will not spoil the surprises. Carl Reiner directed That Old Feeling to perfection. The roller coaster ride begins with a very romantic marriage proposal -- which nearly puts the bride-to-be in the hospital. Who knew that 14 years after Lilly and Dan (Bette Midler and Dennis Farina) divorced and remarried that one very public argument would activate That Old Feeling? The "nuclear" relationship was rekindled at their daughter's wedding, and the on-screen chemistry between them is sizzling. Their daughter Molly (Paula Marshall) is the "adult" of the trio. Her poignant comment, "Do you realize how lucky I am that someone normal wanted to marry me?" foreshadows her decision to not settle. The acting is excellent, and I am sure the cast had a lot of fun making this movie. In one scene, Molly is fixing Joey's (Danny Nucci) hair; her eyes shift quickly as she figures out what will work to tame his wild locks. It is a simple scene, but it shows what good acting is about -- making it believable. Bohemians and politicians in a showy wedding where Molly's grandmother is tap dancing beg for comments. The political jibes about liberals and Republicans fit the scene and add to the farce.There are no "F" words; in fact, no swearing at all. Also, there are no sweaty bedroom scenes. The "action" is shown through innuendoes that stimulate imagination. In my opinion, this is much better than bearing it all. The fights and conversations between Lilly and Dan are stunning. Throughout the movie, great dialogue is snappy and fresh. In the end, Molly and Joey are accused of being just like her parents ... "No, but we soon will be..."The music score is superb. I own the music CD too.Five stars for one of my favorite movies. Victoria Tarrani"
Great Fun- Bette at her Best!

"First a suggestion to the viewer below from Rockwall. You need to see this one again. In terms of comedy, "That Old Feeling" is bubbling with it ! Anyone who knows anything at all about Bette Midler, knows that her snappy wit and peppered dialog go along with the program. As a film star who meets up with her writer ex-husband after 14 years at their daughters wedding, Bette and Dennis Farina bounce beautifully off one another. The dialog is quick and sharp , and Bette is at her best in her scenes sparring with Farina. Paula Marshall and Danny Nucci are good as the younger romantic leads, and David Rasche and Gail O'Grady stand out as the present spouses of Midler and Farina, but it is Bette, as always who steals the show. Though the characters break all the rules of taste and family stability, you still root for them to kiss and make up in the end. Romance and comedy are mixed to perfection here. Carl Reiner did a fine directing job."
