Critic Reviews for Two for the Seesaw
Two for the Seesaw is, quite frankly, one for the cinematic dustbin.
OK drama featuring Mitchum and MacLaine, who work somewhat oddly well together.
Audience Reviews for Two for the Seesaw
Strong performances from the leads, although Shirley's accent is reminiscent of Anne Bancroft who originated the role on Broadway and might have seemed more at home in the part. Well directed by Wise but if interpersonal dramas aren't your thing-steer clear of this.More
