Movie Summary

Director:
David Seltzer
Released:
1988
Rating:
R
Punchline is the smash-hit comedy that brings Oscar winners Sally Field and Tom Hanks to center stage. Field (Forrest Gump, Mrs. Doubtfire) stars as Lilah Krytsick, a New Jerseyhousewife and mother of three who desperately wants to make it big as a comedienne. All her life people have been telling her she's funny, and now her home life has been catapulted into chaos as she spends her nights onstage at the New York comedy club, the Gas Station. Hanks (Cast Away, Saving Private Ryan) plays Steven Gold, a self-centered Lenny Bruce-type who's been stealing the spotlight at the Station with his irrepressible, natural comedic talent. Drawn to one another, Steven helps the stumbling Lilah turn her routine from flat to funny, while Lilah helps Steven keep his anguished lifetogether. With critically-acclaimed performances by Hanks and Field, PUNCHLINE is a fascinating drama about the often harrowing world of comedy.
