Credit for the success of the film has to start with director Robert Zemeckis, who has taken his Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit success and parlayed it into a more mature, yet equally entertaining, film.
This movie spans the times of my life, as I grew up in the same times. How strange is was to watch this movie go through it's storyline. I remember the history in this movie very well. Although some was \"adlibbed\" a little bit, to make it funny, most of it was very serious stuff. Had some very sad moments too. (Mother dying) Getting back with Lt. Dan, fantastic!! A very sad ending, with Jenny and all. A truly great movie, that will be remember forever!!
norma rae is a great movie and perfect direction by martin ritt who has built a real and honest legacy through his work over the years. it is ironic that i bought a classic union story at wallmart's of all places. it just shows that unions due improve the world and the economy. the story of norma rae will always hold up because the rich will get richer and the workers continue to struggle even though or because we are the real strentgh of the country. get the movie and join the fight.
I had been trying to find this title locally and no one I checked with had it but, WalMart.com sure did. I received it in a very timely manner having it delivered to our local store. It was very easy to find and order at WalMart.com and the price was certainly right.
Although overly sappy in places and probably 20 minutes too long, this Robin Williams-in-drag vehicle provides the comic a slick surface for doing his shtick, within a story possessing broad family appeal.
DVD arrived in perfect condition and ahead of the stated delivery date. Price was not too bad, considering that the price of DVD's is going down with the greater availability of the blue ray format. On the other hand, this pariticular movie is not easily available and, so far, is not available in the blue ray format. Still very happy with the purchase. Thanks.
