Critics Consensus: Peggy Sue Got Married may seem just another in a line of '80s boomer nostalgia films, but none of the others have Kathleen Turner keen lead performance.

80s time-warp tale is meaty teen-parent viewing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Francis Ford Coppola's fantasy dramedy focuses on a 45-year-old Peggy Sue waking up in her 17-year-old body. With another chance to live her high school life, she decides to explore her wild side by rebelling (she drinks from her parents' liquor cabinet) and sleeping with the school's mysterious loner. But she also decides to be kind to the class nerd and reevaluate her decision to marry her popular boyfriend. Most of the issues she deals with (sex, partying, life after high school) still resonate today with teens.
