Tagline: Every family has a few hang-ups.

Plot: Daddy's favorite daughter is over-extended in this Diane Keaton-directed comedy about loving, laughing, and learning to let go. Meg Ryan plays party-planner Eve, a streched-too-thin mother, wife, sister, and dutiful daughter. Eve's harried life has become even more complicated by her reliance on modern technology--her cell phone, fax machine, lap top, and answering machine assist in tying up her already busy life. Walter Matthau is her ailing 79-year-old father, Lou, a curmudgeonly grouch who is admitted into the hospital with memory loss. Eve tries to recruit help with her father from her two neglectful sisters: Georgia (Diane Keaton), a New York publishing tycoon who runs her own magazine, the self-titled "Georgia," and baby sister Maddy (Lisa Kudrow), a self-involved soap opera actress. Hoping to please her father, Eve also tries to reach out to her mother (Cloris Leachman) who abandoned the family years earlier. But finally Eve must learn to "hang up" on the pressures, obligations, and responsibilities of being a do-it-all woman. Real-life sisters Nora and Delia Ephron co-wrote the screenplay to HANGING UP, which was adapted from Delia Ephron's book. HANGING UP was Walter Matthau's last film before his death in 2000.
