Cocoon is the story of three men living in a retirement village in Florida.
Each day they sneak into the empty mansion next door and go swimming.
One day, they see odd objects in the pool, but swim anyway.
What happens next is what takes this movie from mild fun to amzing.
Played to the hilt by veteran actors Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Jack Gilford, and Hume Cronyn, it co-stars Steve Guttenberg, Maureen Stapleton, Jessica Tandy (Cronyn's real life wife) Linda Harrison (Planet of the apes),Barret Oliver, the lovely Gwen Verdon, Tahnee Welch and my favorite, Brian Dennehy, as a very likeable --well, his name is Walter.
The cast is perfect. They are all such likeable characters you don't want to let them go, which is probably why they made a Cocoon 2.
Do yourself a favor and watch this movie.
It's a feel good fest that will leave you thinking and make you want to watch it again.
THE PLOT. This is not a Twilight-Zone story with a surprise ending, and so I will go ahead and tell elements of the entire story. COCOON is more about character-development, and about making decisions along life's pathway. The story begins when some ordinary-looking visitor (actually aliens) approach a young boat-rental operator with a need to rent a boat for a month. They rent the boat, and spend their time busily plucking large moss-covered boulders from a sunken hiding place, and transporting them to an indoor swimming pool near an old folks home. Anybody who has seen INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (the black and white version, not the stupid color version) will easily guess what is inside the boulders. The viewer is exposed to humorous episodes and also not-so-humorous episodes of the old folks home residents coming to terms with their dwindling health, weakening eyesight, and threat to their mortality. As the plot unfolds itself, the old folks discover that if they swim around in the pool that contains the boulders (pods containing ancient, but living, aliens) they will feel younger again. Some of the more pleasant parts of the movie show the old folks playing a lively game of basketball, ballroom dancing at a Florida disco, and even break dancing. At any rate, the aliens eventually discover what is going on, and they soon realize that the behavior of the old folks in bathing in the pool has sapped the energy of the ancient aliens that reside within the boulders -- with the consequence that the ancient aliens lose their vitality and are on the verge of dying. The aliens then decide to replace the boulders in their original underwater hiding place, with the intention of picking them up at a later time. The story ends when the old folks, agree to be transported with the aliens in their flying saucer back to the alien planet.
SPECIAL EFFECTS. COCOON does not disappoint, as far as special effects are concern. The flying saucer is seen only at the very end, but at least, we are treated to a fine flying saucer. It is a standard flying saucer, such as that seen in ROSWELL, starring Kyle MacLachlan and featuring Dwight Yokum, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, starring Micheal Rennie, and ALIEN TRESPASS, starring Eric McCormack, Jenni Baird, and Robert Patrick. One original special effect is that the aliens take the form of glowing lava in the form of a human being, and when they walk around or even sit, brightly colored smoke is emitted from their body. The aliens come dressed in human skin, and a couple of the scenes shows the aliens peeling the human skin off from their body, and dumping the "skin costume" in a little heap on the floor.
CONCUPISCENCE. The boat operator is a young man, and he is portrayed as a likeable sleezebag. He is interested in the female alien, and in trying to persuade her to engage in concupiscent behavior with him, he says, "I am not trying to nail you." Eventually, the boat operator succeeds in engaging in concupiscent behavior with the alien, but on her terms. At first, he is disgusted when he spies through the keyhole of the room on the boat where the female alien stays. He watches her take off her earthling-type clothes, and then he sees her peel off her human skin. As I mentioned, the boat operator is initially disgusted, but he soon overcomes the slight problem that the alien is really made of glowing lava. And so, in one of the later scenes in the film, the young man and the alien (dressed in her usual human female skin) are in the swimming pool together, and the alien emits a glowing comet-sort-of-thing, and the comet-sort-of-thing bounces about the walls of the swimming pool room, and eventually strikes the young man, inducing a feeling of fulfillment. Anyway, ho-hum.
CONCLUSION. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS is similar to COCOON in that both involve aliens that reside in pods. But the plot lines of these two movies are totally different. AWAKENINGS with Robin Williams and Robert De Niro is more similar to COCOON, in that both movies involve old people who are deteriorated, and are transformed into vibrant active folks who like to dance. In AWAKENINGS, the transformation was caused by an administered drug, while in COCOON the transformation was caused by a substance in a swimming pool. I think that both movies -- COCOON and AWAKENINGS -- have comparable lessons on mortality. The old people in the cast are a fine ensemble. It is an ensemble piece. Also on the plus side, there are no explosions in this movie, and nobody gets killed, and there are no bad words. On the minus side, there are several seconds of footage of local seabirds, that is, brown pelicans and egrets. But the cinematography of these avian creatures is not very good. Anybody familiar with the habits of brown pelicans could have provided much better footage, for example, of the way groups of two dozen brown pelicans glide in a straight line just a foot or so off from the surface of the ocean.
