Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dated, yes. But it still catches in the throat. Nostalgic, loving, happy, sad."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"today it seems quite dated in its theatrical clunkiness"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Sam Wood's film version is as experimental and stylized as Thornton Wilder's play, one of the most enduring but also misunderstood plays in American history."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Screendaily
"Pretty good, but did Wilder know Wood screwed up the ending?"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
