Peggy Sue Got Married Movie Cast Starring Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage and Kathleen Turner

The 1986 comedy/drama Peggy Sue Got Married was an excellent launch for the careers of Nicolas Cage, Kathleen Turner and Jim Carrey. Learn more about the film and the actors in this article.

Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner) is in her mid forties attending her 25 year high school reunion. At the reunion she meets up with some of her old friends from high school like Richard Norvik (Barry Miller), Walter Getz (Jim Carrey) and Carol Heath (Catherine Hicks). Kathleen also sees her husband and high school sweetheart Charlie Bodell (Nicholas Cage) who stumbles into the party late as usual. Peggy, who appears to be overwhelmed with her current failing relationship with Charlie ends up fainting during the reunion celebration and is transported back to high school days. The difference is this time she has years of experience on her side.

Peggy Sue is quite taken by the entire experience as she ends up making many of the same choices and mistakes that she made during her first pass through high school. Through her experience Peggy realizes why she loved Charlie and when she returns to consciousness she sees the current day Charlie the way she did when she first fell in love with him.

Although the film wasn’t one of the best I have ever consumed it was really fun to watch some of these accomplished actors early in their careers. Learn more about the talented cast members of the film Peggy Sue Got Married below.

Kathleen Turner as Peggy Sue
