TV Guide's Movie Guide

This warm and wonderful comedy-drama is a paean to non-conformity.

Robard's performance is loud, playing-to-the-audience brash, and his version of nonconformist behavior is obnoxiously unfunny.

Terrif dialog to match Robards' scenery-chewing create a sock impact.

The humor is still surprising, and Mr. Robards is still full of spice with his clownish wise-cracks and the map of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey stamped all over his face.

I liked the way it started, but by the end I was quite annoyed by it.

Timeless is an adjective that's tossed around too frequently, but A Thousand Clowns more than qualifies.

The mechanics of the Herb Gardner script show through much too clearly for this to qualify as anything other than shrewdly programmed entertainment.
