Audience Reviews for Best Friends

  • Jan 05, 2011
    An okay realistic family drama movie about marriage. If you ask me, it's too realistic, so much so that it's boring. Overall it's okay, though.

    It wasn't a comedy, and it wasn't quite a drama. It was more like one large depression spiral of how two people can ultimately make each other unhappy no matter what they do. The music, which was Oscar nominated, was so sappy and 80's tinted that it drove me bananas, and Burt Reynolds was not his usual self confident self, but some tame invalid. Overall, it was very disappointing.
