This Is My Life (1992)

NORA EPHRON

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BB.5

USA, 1992.  .  Screenplay by Nora Ephron, , based on the book This Is Your Life by .    Cinematography by .   Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

stars as a single mother who is struggling to make a life for herself as a stand-up comedian.   and are terrific as her confused daughters experiencing the worst ravages of growing pains, but what really makes this film memorable is that the fantastic Kavner finally gets the lead role. Unfortunately, Nora Ephron’s direction is unmemorable and her script even more so, and even Kavner’s stand-up jokes aren’t really all that funny. A waste of opportunity for her, but fans will still get something out of watching it.
