Excellent and touching drama about a man who has AIDS and finds out he has not that much longer to live, decided to throw a farewell party for himself and invites his family and friends. And also his ex. The results are dramatic, heartbreaking and even a little humour is in here too. The whole cast does an excellent job but a few stand out... Eric Roberts as Nick who is dying of AIDS, Lee Grant as his mother, Maragret Cho as a best friend, Olivia Newton John as a best friend, and Gregory Harrison as Nick's ex. This is an excellent film that I have watched more then once. It will make you laugh and cry. Oh man, will it make you cry!! The score is excellent also as is the direction. Recommended.

The Synopsis for It's My Party (1996) 1080p
"You won't leave me, will you?" Nick asks Brandon shortly after revealing to him the results of his last blood test for HIV. "I don't want to die alone." In spite of Brandon's protestations, the two soon find the love they had shared for many years in ruins. One year after their breakup, Nick is confronted with a ravaged immune system and a CT Scan and lab values which, along with his worsening forgetfulness, clenches the diagnosis of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) -- a condition he has seen claim his friends and one which he vows will not take him. Due to the aggressive nature of the disease, he has only a few days of conscious life remaining. His plan, he announces to family and "extended family," is to voluntarily end his life himself before the disease renders him unrecognizable to those he loves and he, in turn, is unable to recognize them. Uninvited to the farewell party, Brandon's presence is greeted with jeers from those who see him as having abandoned Nick ...

Excellent and touchingReviewed byeric-144Vote: 9/10
Randal Kleiser's "It's My Party" was one of the first movies to focus on AIDS patients dying with dignity. In this case, the protagonist holds a party so that he can see his family and acquaintances one last time before he goes. Every one of the characters has something to tell about this man. As expected, someone thinks that his sexual orientation came from "not getting raised properly".
The country has obviously made a number of advancements in LGBT rights since the movie's release, but we still have a ways to go. In the meantime, I hope that movies like this help to remind people that AIDS victims aren't freaks of nature; they're humans. Not a masterpiece but still a good movie.
Director Randal Kleiser is best known for "Grease". The cast includes Eric Roberts, Lee Grant, George Segal, Marlee Matlin, Margaret Cho, Roddy McDowall, Sally Kellerman, Bruce Davison, Olivia Newton-John and Cassandra Peterson (best known as Elvira).
It is pretty obvious this film was completed with a slim budget.....and that works..since the best films are the one's that tell a poignant story that stays with you always. this film does just that!! It came on at 1am last night and I stayed up to finish watching it... Knowing I had to get up very early for work, but I would not nor could not stop watching this movie. Eric Roberts is so incredible in this movie and really I think it is his best performance ever. The only character I didn't like was Pinchot...just too bitchy, but then again I know men just like him and don't like them either ;). I cried so hard during this film. It breaks your heart, especially if you have friends who have aids and one's who have passed from it, like I have. I think What the character Nick does in this film is a hard choice to make..but one he made for himself and those he loved. Harrison's character pisses me off but he is meant to I think and I also think he did a great job as well. It is a great movie and one I will most likely buy for my collection. The story is hard to watch and sad but also funny at times. I can't believe I had never heard of it before. I am so glad I stayed up to watch it though...I highly recommend this film for EVERYONE. It is a story of family and friends and of honesty and of a disease that knows no bounds or orientations. Robert's is amazing in this film and it made me a new fan of his for sure!! It definitely shows the truth about how we as human beings react to the news of impending death and how we all as individuals or family members or friends handle this very hard part of life. By the end of the film I felt I too had lost something......and that is the best part of the movie..it really does make you feel and everyone can relate to at least one of the characters ...this film is for everyone...with the possible exception of young children. The entire cast is awesome and probably the best performance by Olivia Newton John ever as well. Do yourself a favor...see this movie ...you will not regret it....education is the best way to avoid prejudice and hate..this movie does that as well..it educates, even if on a small level what this horrible virus ends up doing to people. This is a true story and the characters were reflecting their real life counter parts, and this film could not show it any better than it did, what it is really like for someone saying farewell...or see you later. I wish I would have known the real person Nick, since it is obvious he was such an influence to everyone around him, in such a positive way. Eric Roberts shows that Nick was such a good and forgiving person...who had laughter in his heart even until the end..who cared so much for his friends and his family that he gave them a party as well as gifts ..the party I don't believe was for him, but he did it for the one's he cared about. What a truly amazing person Nick must have been..to those of you who did know him..you are truly blessed. To the director of this film Randal Kleiser, who I understand made this film as a sort of sound board for the pain he feels...THANK YOU!!!!!
