Best Friends is a 1982 romantic comedy starring Burt Reynolds and Goldie Hawn about a couple grappling with transition from living together to married life. Screenwriters Richard Babson (Burt Reynolds) and Paula McCullen (Goldie Hawn) have spent five years happily sharing a home and script projects. When they are ready purchase a home, Richard thinks it is also time to tie the knot. Paula, on the other hand, feels reluctant as marriage represents getting older to her. Nonetheless, the couple marries and decides to spend their honeymoon on a cross-country train trip to meet the in-laws, as well as rewrite a script for producer Larry Weisman (Ron Silver). The cramped train quarters and increasing pressure from Larry add to a building tension between the formerly amicable couple. Their first visit with Paula's parents Eleanor (Jessica Tandy) and Tim McCullen (Barnard Hughes) in snowy Buffalo, New York only adds to their claustrophobia. Then, they travel to Virginia to visit Richard's parents, Ann (Audra Lindley) and Tom Babson (Keenan Wynan). The eccentric parents underscore the growing differences in the now-bickering couple, who question their future together. Norman Jewison ("Moonstruck") directs a script by Valerie Curtin and Barry Levinson ("Diner") based on their own marital experiences.moreless
