Four For Friday - A Demi Moore Movie

When the news of Demi Moore going to the hospital the other day, one of my old friends called me and reminded me of a story about Demi and the filming of a movie I had not heard in awhile but is really good. You have an important piece of the puzzle with Demi, but see if you can get the rest and the movie.


This movie was made really quickly and not for a ton of money. It was trying to capitalize on the last vestiges of Demi Moore as a young sex symbol and the whole brat pack thing. During this movie, there were a couple of sex scenes with this actor who was pretty close to A list at the time and is still a solid B. Many said the scenes were real because they had sex in the past, but Demi was engaged at the time and the actor was cheating on his then A list girlfriend with enough people anyway so he probably did not need to be cheating with Demi too. Although, I would not have put it past them. The thing is he was definitely sleeping with the co-star of the movie who was also making her film debut and soon became a B+ actress. Demi never made any moves on her, but did make some moves on this actress who later got nominated for an Academy Award. The other male co-star in the movie made his own moves on this other actress in the movie and supposedly that was one of the reasons his marriage collapsed a short time later. The filming definitely lived up to the title.

One Crazy Summer john cusack

Sounds a lot like "About Last Night." Rob Lowe was her costar, and I think was still dating Melissa Gilbert at the time. Other costars were Elizabeth Perkins and James Belushi.

Carley O'Gorman said...

About Last Night, Rob Lowe (girlfriend Melissa Gilbery, definately A list in the day), Elizabeth perkins & jim belushi (divorced 1988)

Doc Girl said...

I agree - About Last Night.

BitterBlondin said...

Maybe Disclosure or Indecent Proposal?

NotAMeanGirl said...

Indecent Proposal - Robert Redford (married) Woody Harrelson (Single) Though there was no 2nd female lead I don't think...

Laura said...

I have to admit to loving "About last Night" and will still watch if I happen to be channel surfing and it is on.

RenoBlondee said...

Def About Last Night.
One of my all time favorite movies EVER. Yes, I own that sucker.

RenoBlondee said...

Oh, and that is very interesting to know when I rewatch this movie for the millionth time! Nice gossip, Enty, thanks!

Carolynn said...

Film: About Last Night
Actor: Rob Lowe
Girlfriend: Melissa Gilbert
Co-Star: Elizabeth Perkins, Academy Award Nominee: Catherine Keener

RenoBlondee said...

Carolynn, you just beat me to it with Catherine Keener! Yep!
Sorry I posted too much y'all, but I've always been obsessed with this movie, lol.

Marie Braden said...

Don't forget, the original title of "About Last Night" was "Sexual Perversity in Chicago".....

spacecowboy78 said...

I guess the male co-star was Jim Belushi who made moves on Megan Mullally?

Ice Angel said...

OMG Demi and Rob were so completely HOT back then!!!

I am thinking something further along, as Demi was really popular then still and so I am thinking post-Ghost and Indecent Proposal. There's some other crappy ones after that according to IMDB.

Shay said...

I wish ROb Lowe could be my Baby Daddy.

Dianne P said...

Yes, definitely About Last Night.

Daveb said...

Per IMDB About Last Night was the debut of Elizabeth Perkins and the second credit for Cathine Keener. However only Keener has ever been Oscar nominated. So, if I read the blind correctly, Lowe got Perkins and Demi hit on Keener.

Definitely not about last night. Demi was still super young and her career was just taking off.

The actor she was engaged to was either Bruce or Ashton. She was married once before when she was 19,but before she made it big (so not him). She met and married Bruce in 1987 and was engaged to Ashton in 2004...so it has to be a movie she made around those 2 different times. I'm assuming 1986 or 2003.

Laura said...

She was engaged to Emilo for awhile before Bruce.

Laura said...

Emilio Estevez that is.

Most definitely, "About Last Night".

Tempestuous Grape said...

Just watched "About Last Night" recently....I love the bar scenes.

anita_mark said...

"It was trying to capitalize on the last vestiges of Demi Moore as a young sex symbol."

She was 24 when About Last Night was made. If the movie is About Last Night, what Enty wrote is horrible. Right up there with saying Cameron Diaz "looks good for 38" or however old she was when he wrote that.

EmEyeKay said...

@RenoBlondee - I just put it on Netflix streaming, you know who Rob reminds me of, with his messy baseball hair? Ian something-halder from that vampire show. Or I should say the vampire guy now reminds me of Rob.

skeeball said...

one crazy summer was in 1986!

Renoblondee said...

@Em
YES. I can totally see that! I watched Ian on Lost. Good catch.

Sherry said...

Crila! Excellent breakdown.

lutefisk said...

I don't remember Demi ever being considered a sex symbol. Even with her ginormous implants which came after everyone saw her topless in "About Last Night."
