Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If The Four Seasons was never a play, it should have been, since it's based on the most stagey, dialog-bound original screenplay in memory."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Much of the film's first half is sprightly and amusing, but the move toward serious drama later, and then a slapstick finale, is a bit hard to take."

"Careful, tasteful, enervated. The film kills off its one unpredictable presence; the company you're left in doesn't compensate."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Amusing and worth a look."
‑ , Time Out
"Comedy-drama has stellar cast, ably directed by Alan Alda."
‑ Steve Crum,
"The Four Seasons is a lively and engaging film about the strain and responsibilities of friendships among married adults."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The Four Seasons is a fond, generous movie about characters who might have easily lent themselves to satire."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Alda's all-star cast has a ball with his sharp material"
‑ Don Willmott,
"Nicely photographed in the Virgin Islands and New England, the film deteriorates towards the end when Weston falls through the ice."
