Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stagey, literal, and sentimental, this romantic film is mediocre in every respect, writing by Neil Simon, direction by Herbert Ross."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Dreyfuss is great but the movie has not held up well."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Dreyfuss' Oscar-winning performance and the chemistry between him and Mason, plus Neil Simon script make this an entertaining watch."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Broadway-like funny romantic comedy sitcom about struggling Manhattan actors, that has its awkward moments."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
