Argued by many to be one of Kevin Smith's best films, 'Chasing Amy' follows the story of comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck), who falls in love with lesbian Alyssa, throwing his friendship with his best friend and work partner into upheaval. Released in 1997, the romantic comedy was the third in Smith's "Jersey Tales" series of films and also featured regular stars Jason Lee and Jason Mewes. Sixteen years later, we take a look back at the cast and see where they are now.
Where Are They Now?
'To Die For,' released in 1995, starred Nicole Kidman as a fame-hungry and ruthless local weather girl who hires three dopey teenagers from a high school to murder her husband. The dark comedy was based in part on a true story and told in mockumentary style, and it helped launch the careers of Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck. Now, 18 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
'Little Women,' based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, was released in 1994, and told the story of the March sisters, who grow up under the guidance of their mother during and after the Civil War. While the fictional girls' lives were blossoming, so were the careers of the film's young stars, like Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Winona Ryder and Christian Bale. Nineteen years later, we look back on the cast of this coming-of-age classic and see where they are now.
Disney's musical 'Newsies,' released in 1992, was loosely based on the newsboys strike of 1899 and starred a young Christian Bale as an orphaned teenager who sells newspapers to earn a living. The film featured 12 original songs and an exciting young cast. Although it performed poorly at the box office, the film became a treasured classic, eventually spawning a stage adaptation. Twenty-one years later, we look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1993, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks reunited for their second film together: 'Sleepless in Seattle,' a film that would go on to become one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time. Inspired by 'An Affair to Remember,' the film follows widower Sam (Hanks), whose son calls into a radio talk show and convinces his father to talk about his wife, attracting a woman named Annie (Ryan). But before the pair can come together, they'll endure a seemingly endless string of mix-ups and personal complications, of course. 20 years later, we revisit the cast of this classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1993, 'Last Action Hero' was an action-packed, meta-curiosity: a young movie fan is transported into a parallel dimension, where he must work alongside the star of a series of action films to stop the villain of those films when he escapes into the real world. Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a fictional version of himself, the star of the "Jack Slater" series of movies within the movie, which is filled with all sorts of satirical winks and nods to the world of cinema. While the film performed poorly at the box office, it's become something of a cult favorite over time. 20 years later, we take a look back at this truly unique release and see what Schwarzenegger and friends are up to now.
The 1998 rom-com 'The Wedding Singer' stars Adam Sandler as broken-hearted 80s wedding singer (obviously) who falls for a cocktail waitress played by Drew Barrymore -- but there's a problem: she's engaged to a total jerk. The film marked the first on-screen coupling between Sandler and Barrymore, who would go on to reunite in '50 First Dates' and are re-teaming for an upcoming romantic comedy. 15 years later, we revisit Sandler, Barrymore, and the rest of the cast of this retro delight and see what they're up to now.
In 1987, John Hughes released 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles,' starring Steve Martin as a man just trying to make it home for Thanksgiving when he's saddled with an obnoxious shower ring salesman -- played by John Candy -- as a traveling companion. The two spend the next three days going from one misadventure to the next as they try to get along and make it through the hellish holiday travel season. 26 years later, we revisit the cast of Hughes' comedy classic -- just in time for Thanksgiving -- and see what they're up to now.
In 1993, the Addams Family returned to the big screen with 'Addams Family Values,' a darkly comic sequel in which murder-obsessed tweens Wednesday and Pugsley are sent off to summer camp after their parents have a new baby, and Uncle Fester gets more than he bargained for when he thinks he's met the love of his life. Arguably better than the first film (and even nominated for an Oscar for Best Art Direction), it's hard to believe it's been 20 years since this Addams sequel hit theaters. Join us as we take a look back at the creepy and kooky cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
From 1982 to 1993, we spent almost every week with Sam, Diane, Frasier, Woody and the rest of the gang of 'Cheers' at the Boston bar where they shared their lives, loves, and many, many drinks with us either while working or drinking at the bar. 20 years after the show took its final bow, we return to the bar where everyone knows your name to take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to these days.
