Critic Reviews for Forever Amber

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (8)

  • Linda Darnell ... makes a handsome but unexciting Amber. Cornel Wilde, as Amber's steady, Lord Bruce Carlton, uses both of his facial expressions frequently.

  • Here is a $4 million (and claimed to be more) picture that looks its cost.

    October 23, 2007 | Full Review…
  • The film runs for two hours and twenty minutes, which is just about an hour too long considering its repetitious nature and the fact that it is pretty trashy stuff.

    January 28, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Preminger's direction lacks the sophisticated lightness of touch that Mitchell Leisen brought to the in some ways similar Kitty.

    January 26, 2006 | Full Review…
  • It's a lush Fox production, photographed in Technicolor by the great Leon Shamroy and directed by a wholly uninterested Otto Preminger.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • However, the adaptation's studio-mandated propriety keeps it from truly transcending the tired strains of soap opera melodrama.

Audience Reviews for Forever Amber

  • Aug 28, 2008
    A very well done period piece starring the beautiful Linda Darnell.

    Linda is ravishing and the costumes are incredibly sumptous, they had to cut the guts out of the novel but on its own terms a fun ride.
