Husbands and Wives Reviews

In a sense, Woody Allen lets himself off the hook by having his character hold back from adultery, and even seem the victim of Mia Farrow's character. But this is not a smug movie, and much the better for it.

Smart, sensitive and packed with quality performances.

In all respects, this is a full meal, as it deals with the things of life with intelligence, truthful drama and rueful humor.
March 23, 2009
Excellent performances from Pollack and Davis in particular, make this one of Woody's finest of the 90s.

Allen's conception of character is as banal and shallow as ever, but the lively performances of some of his actors and the novelty of the film's style make this more watchable than many of his features.
October 18, 2008
It doesn't suffer from the compulsive tidiness of some of Allen's later movies -- the juices are flowing, the hysteria is closer to the surface -- and in this looser, more volatile atmosphere his extraordinary cast gets to soar.

This last waltz between America's most prestigious film couple has a tone of muted regret, not confession or sensationalism.

Too bad that the Allen-Farrow scandal erupted before this movie for it's one of Allen's best serio comedies with wonderful performances (particularly Judy Davis), but questions of life imitating art or art imitating life are inevitable while watching it

With excellent performances (Davis and Pollack in particular), it's his finest film since Hannah and Her Sisters.

This is one of Woody Allen's best films to date, combining some of his finest serious writing about relationships, in the style of Hannah and her Sisters, with humor that's all the more effective thanks to its dark, edgy context.

Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives is a very fine, sometimes brutal comedy about a small group of contemporary New Yorkers.
