Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Astringently witty and ultimately heart shattering, ''Dinner With Friends'' is an expertly prepared gourmet feast in a world of TV dinners."
‑ Bruce Fretts, Entertainment Weekly
"Would be better filmed as a play, but as it is, is a wonderfully performed relationship drama"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"There are moments of interesting honesty, and the players get to enjoy some meaty roles - especially Quaid, nicely underplaying one of the least showiest roles he's had in years."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"As an adult drama, Dinner With Friends is apt enough at exploring late-thirtysomething angst and crisis, well acting and paced with enough momentum to keep the story from dragging."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"...the performances are all note-perfect."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Norman Jewison's beautifully acted film is a tour de force with verbal fireworks, emotional surprises, and substantive insights into friendship, marriage, and divorce."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
