In ``Hanging Up,'' an exploration of family at its best, worst and funniest, director Diane Keaton introduces us to the Mozells: patriarch Lou (Walter Matthau) and daughters Georgia (Diane Keaton), vying for a spot on the Power List as editor-in-chief of her self-titled women's magazine, Eve (Meg Ryan), the daddy's girl-turned-responsible middle sister, and Maddy (Lisa Kudrow), a semi-successful soap actress. Somewhere between `hello,' `goodbye,' and `you're breaking up -- I'll call you back,' they cope with the joy, tears and conflicting emotions that plague all families, and most importantly, find a way to laugh despite their hang-ups.

Co-starring in the film are Adam Arkin (``Chicago Hope'') as Eve's loving and infinitely patient husband Joe; Cloris Leachman (``Music of the Heart'') as Pat Mozell, who left Lou and her daughters -- and never looked back; and Jesse James (``Message in a Bottle'') as Eve and Joe's young son, Jesse.

Columbia Pictures is proud to present ``Hanging Up,'' based on the book by Delia Ephron and produced by Laurence Mark (``Jerry Maguire'') and Nora Ephron (``You've Got Mail''). Executive producers are Delia Ephron (``You've Got Mail'') and Bill Robinson (``Unstrung Heroes''). The screenplay is by Delia Ephron & Nora Ephron.

                   In theatres Friday, February 18
