I really liked how we went through that. It really makes me think, when I listen to it. For whatever reason, those scenes just made me cry. I mean, I was weepy throughout the entire thing, [chuckle] I really was. The acting is incredible. Meg Ryan as Alice playing the alcoholic, just perfect acting. And Andy Garcia as the husband, Michael, and the two children actually did a fantastic job.
All the acting was really good. It really was. And also, a recovering addict and alcoholic too, before he relapsed and passed. You see sometimes some of the same people in these addiction movies, I think. So, it made a lot of sense thinking about it. But this time, it felt a whole lot more about him than it did her…. And I just thought her depiction of an alcoholic in early recovery was spot on. I mean, about how silly we are, how we get all excited about our new friends and our meetings and kind of self-absorbed, and she displayed all of those behaviors, and I thought she just did a perfect job.
And also, the people that were in the treatment center with her.

It was exactly right. I thought that was… This time, I really picked up on that. It was pretty amazing. Should we just start from… Just talk about the movie from the beginning? The movie opens up with the scene of Alice, played by Meg Ryan. And then the movie moves on to their home life. And then she was locked out of her house and it was kind of an embarrassing situation for her.
And it really sets the tone nicely for how just a subtle drinking too much can slowly slip into something you never planned on it to be at all. He was the hero that would sweep in and try to solve all the problems. What a great guy he is. He seems to be the one that has it all together. And I just saw Meg Ryan as being the one who was selfish and self-absorbed and was the one that was causing problems in the relationship.
And even as somebody who was yet to have a drinking problem, I think I was blaming her. This is a scene where they get into an argument.

You got a printed schedule? Excuse me for taking my life personally, Alice. What is wrong with our home? You said it was something. What is it, huh? Is it the couch? Is it an area rug? Or is it possibly, Alice, Alicia, me? Is it me? Everything is my fault! My sick wife is not making it in her home environment! Why, exactly? I am not your problem to solve! That was the best, huh? That made you feel good. Oh, fuck that! Fuck making it better, Michael! You make me feel like a stupid, worthless, weak animal. Good idea. So, it just puts their whole dynamic in… Just in turmoil.
She was the one who actually could see the truth of their relationship.
She was the one who knew that something needed to change between them, and I totally missed that the first time I saw this movie. And then he leaves early, I think. And yeah. She probably needed someone to… He talked, too, at different times about not seeing it at all. And how many people say that?
So yeah, wow, that was a great clip.
This is probably one of my favorite movies when it comes to addiction and recovery, and really because of just the amazing job that she did portraying the alcoholic, and also him. I thought that was kind of an interesting thing to hear. Well, and I think a lot of times those explosive instances, like tossing over that table right there, which is almost a threat of violence, is just… Often comes from burying and burying and burying and not being willing to acknowledge certain things.

So, this whole situation with her is throwing that right into the light for him to have to take a look at, too. And so, my situation, I had… I did have an enabler, my father was a bit of an enabler, and there was a change in our relationship for sure. And it turned out to be something that took a lot of time for us to, I think, really be comfortable with that new relationship. Is any of that true for you at all? When I was younger, I remember dating and a girl would like me or whatever and we seemed to get along, and I would just get drunk or something and just walk away and just disappear and it was really sad, because there were some really nice women that I met and dated, and they were lucky to not have to deal with me, because I had a lot of problems, but yeah.
I just avoided relationships. I think it has to be both, probably. I mean, my…. It takes a lot of work. Now, throw in two little kids on top of that, and then throw in two people who work from, say, in the morning till at night and have two kids.

He would think, well, this is… We love each other, we care about each other. It should be able to work. And getting back to the movie a little bit too, like, leading up to that fight too. And kids, it can be very frustrating, I have to own that, but if I holler at my daughter too much, she starts to cry.
I lose my temper sometimes. And to just see the influence that all this stuff in this movie has on a child. What is it going to solve yelling or anything? I mean, how many times did I come across my dad passed out on the carpet in the bathroom after he was sitting on the toilet and spilled his beer everywhere and I cleaned it up and just waited for him to wake up?
I knew it happened often enough that I knew dad had just passed out on the toilet again or something, but that stuff does write on the script of who you are. Oh, God. She cooks better, she looks better, she kisses better. Mommy is a better person.

We could talk about that. She cries in the bathroom. I guess I was kind of hard on that earlier, but yeah, it would be hard to have a firm grasp on it. And the trauma with the kids, and what they go through and all that stuff, but just how resilient they are too in the movie. He gets transferred to Denver. When he goes to see them at the park on the playground equipment, especially the older one, Casey, I think is her name.
And because he was being threatened with being laid off and all those things. It was so well done.
