This story is of seven college housemates (Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and Jobeth Williams) from the 1960s who have drifted apart and then reunite at the funeral of a friend. Having entered adulthood as non-conformists, most now belong to the establishment. Stunned by the death of their peer, sensing their own mortality and the loss of their innocence, each takes the opportunity to reevaluate his or her life and re-establish their bonds. These characters go out for a jog when discussing their lives (Oops, you can even see Hurt’s microphone wire off this hip) and enjoy the scene where the classic Nike shoes are provided to everyone from their friend who now works at the store named "Running Dawgs". This film is rated R for themes as well as nudity and the 15th anniversary collector’s edition was released in 1999 by Sony Pictures. You have several formats available from Amazon.com including the 15th Anniversary DVD, widescreen VHS, or standard VHS. Information about the Soundtrack is presented after the trailer:
