[A] mischievous send-up of D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Hardy and assorted other high-toned practitioners of grimly serious rural romances.

Sweet, sprightly made-for-British-TV comedy.
June 24, 2006
Malcolm Bradbury's script and John Schlesinger's direction ... between them coarsen, soften and simply lose much of Gibbons' extraordinarily sophisticated, wonderfully funny humour ...
June 2, 2006
Schelsinger's masterfully directed eccentric satire is based on Stella Gibbons' 1933 book which spoofs the serious, soul-searching, rural-set stories of writers like D.H. Lawrence and Mary Webb.

Good, but somehow not great version of the classic British novel.

August 27, 2002
Skewers the dark romantic novels of rural England and shows how a control freak can find happiness.
February 28, 2002
The film is full of wonderful eccentrics and funny performances.

What could be more welcome than a classic English comedy, bristling with wit and hilarity and crammed with wonderful eccentrics?
January 1, 2000
Mr. Schlesinger draws lively performances out of his cast and surprising variety out of the film's secondary sights, which range from a gala soiree to a heap of steaming dung.
January 1, 2000
Thanks to Schlesinger's exacting direction and Malcolm Bradbury's witty, restrained script, these characters are kept more amusing than horribly pitiable.
January 1, 2000
While the premise sounds more like a Charles Dickens tragedy than a comedy, it becomes a delight in such capable hands.
January 1, 2000
Dickens meets the Beverly Hillbillies.

"Cold Comfort Farm" may be hysterically funny to regular readers of Hardy, Lawrence, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, but it won't ring many bells for the rest of us.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Cold Comfort Farm" when I watched it, but the minute I left the theater I remembered nothing about it.
