Discuss The Big Chill

I love this movie... A quintessential 80s film... mixing the sentimental with the funny... casual drinking and smoking... adult relationships... captures the mood and atmosphere of the times... It's so good

I would love to see someone make an homage to this... it would be interesting to see someone try setting it in contemporary times...

What do you guys think? Would it be possible to remake this in current times? Can you guys think of any comparable movies to this?

It's not as good as THE BIG CHILL ...

but it's as if someone was using the next generation to try and tell us the same kind of a story ...

as they struggle to try and transition into their professional lives ...

(whereas most of the Big Chillers are also already well established into their lives as professionals) .

So if ST. ELMOS FIRE was a homage or an attempt to imitate THE BIG CHILL, then perhaps one would probably also say they failed and didn't succeed?
