A really fantastic cast manages to producer a really okay movie. DAS is not with out it's moments, but it pales in comparison to the Italian original.

A good cast, but you can tell from the title and plot that this is supposed to be the American take on the film Divorce Italian Style, which was a much better movie. This movie isn't all that funny, but it has a good cast.

Pretty racey for a Dick Van Dyke/Debbie Reynolds 60's movie. Quirky, original movie which dramatizes and plays with divorce and what happens to families in the wake of it. Great cast, enjoyable story.

Divorce should be No Laughing Matter, but with Debbie Reynolds & Dick Van Dyke as the couple in Comedic Marital Turmoil, it certainly is!!! The film amplifies the little things that annoy spouses about one another in such a hilarious way, then the Process & Irony of Divorce , that it really gives Chuckle to how silly it all is & that it'd be Cheaper to Keep Her.
One of my favorite Scenes in Cinema is in this: Barbara(Debbie) goes under hypnosis in a Cabaret Act on Stage with the New Boyfriend(Van Johnson) & Soon to be Ex(Van Dyke) at the stroke of midnight, watching as she gets Camp, Vamp, & quite Burlesque Tramp, it's Hysterical. Only Debbie Reynolds could be Sexy & Funny at the same time & go above & beyond what the Script intended.Magic, Mayhem, Marriage, American Style.

A rather biting comic satire, very well written and fine stylish direction. All the performances are fine, one of Debbie Reynolds and Van Johnson's best performances. Nice camerawork. Very well done in all areas.

Very funny Dick Van Dyke/Debbie Reynolds comedy about two people in love who can't stand each other. Enjoyable.

Debbie doing drama is interesting, basically because after proving so deft at the adorable girl-next-door/Tammy kind of roles, she really proves her worth with an edgier film like this. It's not a great movie and actually kind of drags, but certainly not because of her - she's grade A fab as usual.

Great to see so many post-marital situations get covered here. Several excellent actors/actresses combined with good direction and editing get all these loose threads to flow relatively smoothly through-out. Moral: Advice from friends is really just their revealing fantasies - so judge them by their words but don't do it yourself!

It says that it is a comedy but I didn't even want to finish it when I was watching it today because I think it's a boring movie. Boring boring boring!

Divorce American Style is a surprisingly intelligent film. Dick van Dyke and Debbie Reynolds worked well together. The movie was smartly directed by Bud Yorkin. Norman Lear did a good job co-writing this script. This biting satire died at the box office at the time of release but was well-made. The film was quite a revealing comedy about the ins and outs of marriage and divorce. Divorce American Style is a must see if you're a fan of comedies.

This is movie swerves like an out-of-control car... but it still has a little bit of a plot, so I will keep it at 6.
