My best friend told me this was a classic and I had to see it. Has anyone here seen it? Thoughts? Is it available on Netflix?

Debbie Reynolds was NEVER better, a true classic performance!

I'm sure it's available at your local library by now. You should call and ask; better yet, just go by and ask the folks at the help desk.

I know I often post some cruel things about her, but I will say that this film featured Gwenyth's best work.

Make sure you get the new Blu-Ray with all of the extra material. There's an extended interview with Helen Lawson where she discusses what it was like to be the fluffer.

I'd like to see a 100 load weekend. Dawson must be a m,millionaire!

R4 I think the commemorative edition cover reads:
DAWSON - LAWSON Together Again for the First Time!
DAWSON'S BACK AND LAWSON'S GOT HIM!

Would someone be so kind as to post a pic of the Dawson guy.
I've heard about him for a few years here on the DL, but I don't know what he looks like.
Is he hung? Handsome?

I will search for other pix of him and post.

Sounds like one of my weekends. Only it was 50 loads of laundry.

He is the natural successor to Lillian Gish as America's Sweetheart: the same sunny eagerness. How D.W. Griffith would have adored him. Imagine a silent remake of Way Down East -- Way Down Low East, with him fording ice floes between polar bearback loads. Magic. He only lacks that ultimate hallmark of Hollywood glamour, a $cientologist beard, but one can't have everything.

Don't spend money buying or even renting it. TNT will show it around the clock for 24 hours beginning Christmas Eve.

They tried to get James Van Der Beek to reprise his TV role, but he wanted too much money. Now look where he is: playing himself on a failed sitcom.

R19, it can't be from these films. All of the sex is simulated.

He actually has done several interviews saying he found out about being HIV+ before he decided to do the films - and although not explicitly stated, is probably one of the reasons that went into actually doing the films.

Wasn't Lucille Ball to play Dawson before Gary talked her out of it?

It added a certain gravitas to the performance that otherwise would not have been there.

Check out "Dawson's Crack" while you're at it, OP.

Dawson is open about his HIV-positive status. He stated in an interview "I don't make a point to ask what the other performers' ( HIV ) status is but TIM does and informs someone ... so they can make an informed decision.".

there is, but don't listen to the whiney voice-over commentary, annoying and just TMI!

Did it get any SAG or Golden Globe nominations?
I hear that Dawson (and his fellow actors) really are into the Strasburg Method.

Must be the highly-acclaimed sequel to Dawson's Crack, starring little James Van Der Beek.

I do think he stretched it a bit too far with his follow-up, "A Dawson Under the Influence."

Yearning is such an undervalued quality. And the pollination this flower a beautiful thing. It only needs the velvety commentary of Sir David Attenburgh to push it into the sublime...
"Yielding enthusiastically under the repeated thrusts of the invading phallus, the Dawson sphincter welcomes its inseminator with a series of delightful upward begging motions, and Instinct takes charge in a display at once glorious and an affirmation of Nature's eternal renewal..."

Nice, R47. Except that all the baby gravy in the world injected into Dawson won't help Nature renew one damn bit.

I was once in a cafe and heard two old fraus talking about how someone they knew had "THE AIDS." Thank you for the memories r19.

"Has anyone here seen it?"
I saw it. Dawson was like Drew Barrymore in "50 First Dates" except his 'slate' was never wiped clean.

I've never seen it but my ex saw some Dawson movie that was set on Fire Island and they froze a lot of cum from random men into a dildo and fucked Dawson with it.
