Critic Reviews for Bobby Deerfield (Heaven Has No Favorites)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (7) | DVD (5)

A brilliantly unusual love story, told in a European fashion which makes the Sydney Pollack film at first irritating, then intriguing, finally most rewarding and emotionally satisfying.

Top Critic

A classic example of a Hollywood director being struck down by a lethal 'art' attack as soon as he sets foot in Europe.

Time Out
Top Critic

Bobby Deerfield may turn out to be the year's most cynical movie made by people who know better, including Sydney Pollack, the director, and Alvin Sargent, who wrote the screenplay.

This gorgeously shot film is a trifle long at just over two hours; much of the racing footage could have been dispensed with, along with the sudsiest of the emotions.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A resonant Pacino...though ultimately a misfire, suggests that there are worse things to call a movie than 'a curiosity.' [DVD review]

Groucho Reviews

Pacino is at his best: precise, internal, magnetically cute, and expert at capturing the fear in this man's turtle-like existence and his longing for change.

Slant Magazine

One of Sydney Pollack's worst films, this sechmaltzy romantic drama about the life and loves of a car racer (poorly played by Al Pacino) has no redeeming qualities in either length; Pollack recut the film to 99 minutes for TV.

EmanuelLevy.Com

A turgidly formulaic disease-of-the-week film elevated to cinematic status purely due to the presence of Pacino.

Audience Reviews for Bobby Deerfield (Heaven Has No Favorites)

½

A bizarre misfire from a talented line-up of artists. With such a towering amount of potential, it is peculiar to see Bobby Deerfield as what it is - a mess. Lacking in any sort of distinguishable narrative or character thread, the movie plods off in numerous directions and leaves the audience behind. The most interesting aspect of it is Al Pacino's understated acting in the title role. Pacino has stated that out of all the roles he's played, this one is the closest to himself in reality. It is evident that he has a deep understanding of this character, but his depth and nuance is lost in a chaotically executed picture.
