Movie Info

Lovers and Other Strangers became a "sleeper" hit, based on a play by Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna. The story is essentially a series of vignettes and anecdotes, unified by an impending marriage. Father of the bride Hal (Gig Young) has problems with his long-suffering mistress, Cathy (Anne Jackson), who spends much of the film sitting on the toilet, crying her eyes out; Wilma (Anne Meara), the bride's sex-starved sister, can't wrest her husband, Johnny (Harry Guardino), away from the TV; and

It has the tact to hold back, to trust its characters to somehow fumble through to something that's not love, maybe, but will do.

A charming, hilarious film that skillfully balances the many divergent storylines into a fascinating, entertaining whole.

The best element of this Broadway play to the big screen transfer is the acting of the entire ensemble, headed by Richard Castellano, who received a Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.

A witty movie - the success of which Howard never repeated.

Audience Reviews for Lovers and Other Strangers

Great cast but dated episodic comedy. Still its enjoyable to see so many wonderful performers all gathered together and Dishy's apartment is a snapshot of 70's mod decorating.
