Critic Reviews for Fifth of July
Now grown up, these would-be reformers use humor, denial, and ultimately honesty to reconcile the world they got with the world they tried to make.
Audience Reviews for Fifth of July
This is clearly a very, very good play. However, not so good a movie adaptation. The editing is awkward, making it seem stilted and choppy, rather than the flowing nature of a theatrical production. The acting is all very good, however. If I ever got an opportunity to see the play, I would certainly take it. But I wouldn't go out of my way to see the movie again.
