Fan site for the talented Jennifer Connelly with pictures and movies
The 1988 romantic comedy starring Patrick Dempsey and Jennifer Connely is now available on DVD. The move must have been to capitalize on the two’s recent success (Dempsey in “Grey’s Anatomy” and Connelly’s Oscar-winning performance in “A Beautiful Mind”). Anyway, the DVD is available for fans of the two celebrities. Those who were not able to watch it before can now do so in clear DVD format.
The movie is about a young couple’s “dream” vacation when Gabby (Connelly) invites Michael (Dempsey) to spend Christmas with her family in Quebec. When they arrive, Michael is greeted by Gabby’s weird writer father who mostly wanders around the house naked, two sisters who immediately flirt with him, Gabby’s mother who is all frosty towards him and Gabby’s grandmother who mistakes him for her long-dead husband. A weird family makes for a weird story. Watch Dempsey when he was still skinny and Connelly when she was still a voluptuous and cherubic 18 year old sweetie. The movie was directed by Michael Hoffman and produced by super star Robert Redford himself.
