Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fuzzily conceived and indecisively executed, Harry & Son represents a deeply disappointing return to the director's chair for Paul Newman."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The film is definitely overlong, bordering on the dull."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The script offers few insights and the plot is too predictable to create any tension."
‑ , Film4
"The movie might have worked if it had been a satire of those awful made-for-TV Family Problem Movies. Unfortunately, it does not seem to know it is funny."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Produced, directed and even partially scripted by Newman, the story about a man suffering from a heart condition is hardly exciting or rewarding material."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"A decently intentioned but rather drab mess of a movie."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"OK pairing of Paul Newman and Robby Benson in domestic drama."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
