Moment by Moment is a 1978 film starring John Travolta and Lily Tomlin. The film was written and directed by Jane Wagner.


It tells the story of a romance between a young drifter named Strip (John Travolta) and an older wealthy woman, Trish Rawlings (Lily Tomlin).


Critical response[edit]

This movie was wholly panned by critics and moviegoers alike and has never been released on home video in any medium, but a high-definition video master exists and has been broadcast on Universal HD.

Moment by Moment remains a "camp classic", with a reputation sufficient to have prompted Mystery Science Theater 3000 producers to try (unsuccessfully) to obtain the rights necessary to broadcast it and mock it on their show.[2] The film grossed $10,963,824 in the United States.[3]


Despite the film's poor reputation, its title song was a considerable hit for singer Yvonne Elliman in 1979.
