Best Friends Reviews

May 8, 2019
So far, this sounds like a series of fairly predictable scenes. But they're redeemed by the writing and acting. The dialogue doesn't sound like reprocessed sitcom, and there are charming moments.

There's little doubt that Best Friends fares best in its compulsively watchable opening stretch...

There are lots of laughs in the script by Valerie Curtin and Barry Levinson, as well as wry insights into modern relationships.

Thin story collapses under the leaden star chemistry; capable supporting players can't save this dud.

Considering the source material (real life of writers Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin, and the caliber of stars, Hawn and Reynolds, this comedy is disappointingly shallow and predictable.

Though engaging and agreeable, the film is never wildly funny.

Honest, touching and funny. An underrated gem that deserves to be rediscovered.

Even when Best Friends isn't working uproariously as a comedy, there's an element of original, offbeat humor that keeps it promising.

Best Friends is such a forgettable film I had no recollection of it ever being made.

The script plods through autobiographical self-indulgence with some warmth but too few laughs.
