Enjoyably cynical black comedy satirizing society's obsession with youth and beauty. Hawn and Streep are hilariously bitchy and it's nice to see Bruce Willis shedding the dumb action hero persona to become a very able comic foil.

I don't really remember much about this movie other than it being a cute, odd little movie.

I enjoyed this dark comedy. Streep, Hawn and Willis were all funny. I liked the special effects, especially when Streep and Hawn are years older and falling apart.

When Bruce Willis drinks a Bloody Mary to sober up, you know you have a good movie on your hands. It was pretty enjoyable and I had been meaning to see it for years. Isabella Rossellini plays the badish girl that she plays so well. Try it. You'll like it?

A truly unfunny comedy that wants to be dark, but fails to be anything but disappointing. The special effects weren't special in 1992 and look even worse today. Bruce Willis should just be ashamed.

Hilarious!

A morality tale based on a very human foible - in this case the fear of growing old and the search for perpetual youth, or at least a youthful appearance. Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn play aging childhood friends who grow to absolutely hate each other. Helen, (Goldie Hawn), hates Madeline, (Meryl Streep), because she always steals her boyfriends. Helen is currently in love with Dr Ernest Menville, played by Bruce Willis, but Madeline steals him as well and they get married. Years later, both go to a beautiful witch who has a youth potion that allows them to be immortal and gorgeous forever, but they get more than they bargained for when they both die but stay alive (due to the potion).Now they must rely on Ernest to save their skin from rotting.

Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn are perfect...
