Underrated movie that mixes great acting and effects with a lesson to those who stop at nothing to cheat the inevitable ravages of time. Highly recommended.

*Question* - So, what do you get when you cast 3 big-name, Hollywood stars like Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, and Bruce Willis in a big-budget comedy together?

*Answer* - You get a real mess-of-a-movie that's so funny you'll completely forget to laugh.

Filled-to-overflowing with vicious and spitefully hateful dialogue - This shallow and demented story about immortality and discovering the fountain of youth couldn't have been more brain-dead and pretentious than if its producers had deliberately tried to make it that way.

And, on top of that - You'll never be convinced that Streep's and Hawn's characters were both actually fighting for the attentions of a total dud/loser/wimp/deadbeat as Willis.

Released in 1992 when CGI was not so common and so good. Hilarious zombie sci-fi filmed inside landmarks around Beverly Hills back in the days. Three celebrated actresses and Streep came out on top with her wicked body posture and facial expression as a comic. LOL! As the dvd was dated 1998, it was not truly HD and could use an update.

Note from wiki: The first DVD-Audio players were released in Japan by Pioneer in late 1999, but they did not play copy-protected discs. Matsushita (under the Panasonic and Technics labels) first released full-fledged players in July 2000 for $700 to $1,200.

goldie, in one of her last films, before her hiatus, holds her own against meryl streep.

I love you library, but did we need this 1992 stinker on blu-ray? Bruce Willis is good though.

Hilarious movie with hilarious actors. Ending is perfect, both girls are super. Perhaps one unexpected role for RED, but I like it most than all these featured roles as non-existent heroes.

Tagline for this amazing film was a little off. It should have ended:

"Maybe it works a little too well."

Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn star with Bruce Willis in Robert Zemekis' outrageously entertaining comedy about greed, vainty, sex, immortality, life...and death.
Isabella Rossellini is a beautiful enchantress who changes their lives - and deaths - forever in this hilarious dark comedy with ground-breaking special effects that the Chicago Tribune calls 'diabolically inventive'.
