The talents of everyone connected with it are unmistakable, including those of Mr. Newman... It's just that the basic material calls for a kind of second-rate bravura performance from everyone, from the production designer to the actors.

Sentimental without really being tender, naturalistic without being real.

Newman and Woodward's daughter Potts steals the movie, but what makes it so watchable is Newman's reluctance to sentimentalise.

Producer-director Paul Newman has made his finest behind-the-camera film to date in the screen version of Paul Zindel's play.

Joanne Woodward's high-decibel output comes across like a distaff version of Jon Lovitz' Master Thespian.
