Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Minnelli pulls back the stinky underbelly of this Texan-hell family in all his scope splendor"
‑ Paul Brenner, Filmcritic.com
"...just entertaining enough to warrant a mild recommendation."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Powerful look at male roles, showing innovative approaches to story telling."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Along with Some Came Running, it ranks as Minnelli's finest family melodrama, lurid and flamboyant yet also deeply emotional and incisive in its critique of the patriarchal order; Robert Mitchum as the patriarch is superb."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A great drama enhanced by the terrific performances of Robert Mitchum, George Hamilton, George Peppard and Eleanor Parker."
‑ Diana Saenger, ReviewExpress.com
