Critic Reviews for The Four Seasons

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

If The Four Seasons was never a play, it should have been, since it's based on the most stagey, dialog-bound original screenplay in memory.

Amusing and worth a look.

The Four Seasons is a fond, generous movie about characters who might have easily lent themselves to satire.

August 30, 2004

Much of the film's first half is sprightly and amusing, but the move toward serious drama later, and then a slapstick finale, is a bit hard to take.

Comedy-drama has stellar cast, ably directed by Alan Alda.

Audience Reviews for The Four Seasons

½

There is something comforting about this movie, no matter how old it is. The cast just gels here and the acting is not half bad. Alan Alda directed this gem and stars with Carol Burnett and Rita Moreno about 4 couples that do everything together. The big piece of this movie is that it shows the trials and tribulations of marriage and how difficult it can be to have friends. The storyline is not the strong part of the movie, it is the acting. I was surprised to see the performances by two of the biggest comedians in the business. Bess Armstrong puts on a good performance as well!
