Movie Info

In Ash Wednesday, Liz Taylor is an unhappy lady in her mid-50s who thinks a face and tummy lift will be the answer to her sagging marriage. So its off to Italy for the major surgery which she hopes will make her more appealing to her low-life husband (Henry Fonda). On her way home, the newly dazzling Taylor tries out her equipment on an interested gent (Helmut Berger) and feels she's ready for her main man. Unfortunately her hubby has already fallen for a younger lady.

Critic Reviews for Ash Wednesday

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

Taylor, fashionably gowned and bejewelled carries the film almost single-handedly. Fonda is excellent in his climatic appearance, an usually superb casting idea.

Top Critic

In what is little more than a homage to Taylor's face, the film spends a good deal of time looking at her reflection in the mirror and endorsing her Martini ad lifestyle up to the hilt.

Time Out
Top Critic

This is not a male chauvinist's conception of a woman, but her hairdresser's, full of envy, awe and superficial compassion.

The whole movie, indeed, feels longer than it is. It's 15 minutes short of two hours, and still it takes forever to be over.

Another in the long string of mediocre films by Taylor.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A dreadful bit of mid-70s soap opera.
