Cocoon is great!
- for those of you that do, read on...
Cocoon is so well known that I think it's pointless to recount the plot, although what there is of it is faintly nonsensical (involving OAP's, aliens and Steve Guttenburg). What makes this film great however, is the wonderfully warm and enthusiastic interplay between the old cronies - Hume Cronyn, Wilford Brimley, Jessica Tandy and Don Ameche all turning in excellent performances.
Ron Howard's sci-fi tale is engaging, sweet and funny leaving you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
