Terms of Endearment

Aurora and Emma are mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora's interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next door neighbor are quite striking.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The role of Patsy was originally offered to Kim Basinger, who turned it down to star in The Man Who Loved Women (1983) instead
  • Movie Goof (miscellaneous): During the scene that Emma gives Flap a tie, there is a purple tag hanging from the sleeve of her blouse.
  • The MPAA originally gave this film an "R" rating due to strong language. It was reduced to "PG" on an appeal (the PG-13 rating did not exist at the time), an achievement often repeated by writer-director-producer James L. Brooks on his later films.
  • Louise Fletcher was considered for the role of Aurora.
