Reel Film Reviews

...an appealing premise that's employed to watchable (if entirely uneven) effect by filmmaker Stanley Kramer...

...rather tame and superficial by today's standards: a gentle, sentimental comedy on the subject of interracial marriage.

Civil rights, love, and family stress.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Tracy looks tired in this draggy production; he died soon afterward, and it's infuriating to watch him sweat to inject fire into such pap.

There are wonderful performances here, as you'd expect from Hepburn and Tracy, and there's no question that the film is well intentioned. Yet it's also hamfisted and self-congratulatory in the most galling way.

A disaster on all counts -- its time, if it ever had one, has definitely passed.

Billed in 1967 as Hollywood's first serious film about interracial marriage, this theatrical movie begs one question: What mother in her right mind will object to Sidney Poitier as a fiance to her daughter--he's handsome, renowned pro, and gentleman

A wishy-washy, sanctimonious plea for tolerance, directed with Kramer's customary verbosity and stodginess.

If you guessed, 'a wheezy social problem drama,' you're right.

It would be easy to tear the plot to shreds and catch Kramer in the act of copping out. But why? On its own terms, this film is a joy to see, an evening of superb entertainment.

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

An earnest liberal outing that today seems passive, tame and condescending, but still watchable because of the performances of Tracy, Hepburn and Poitier.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Well-meaning and generally effective.

As an opus on race relations, Dinner certainly seems a bit daring, but it's just not standing the test of time terribly well.
