What Husbands and Wives argues is that many "rational" relationships are actually not as durable as they seem, because somewhere inside every person is a child crying me! me! me!

Excellent performances from Pollack and Davis in particular, make this one of Woody's finest of the 90s.

In all respects, this is a full meal, as it deals with the things of life with intelligence, truthful drama and rueful humor.

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

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.

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

One of Allen's most criminally underappreciated films.

Examines the ways the soul of a marriage can be sustained or shattered by change and conflict.

With its relationship angst and Lolita temptations, Husbands and Wives hits embarrassingly close to Allen's home. But it also hits its comic target.

Ten years ago, Husbands and Wives played second fiddle to Woody Allen's all-media split with Mia Farrow.
