Critic Reviews for Frankie and Johnny Are Married
Most entertaining is Alan Rosenberg's wicked spoof of actorly neuroses.
We get, basically, a love note from one to the other. But what we don't get is an absorbing movie.
A chronicle of embarrassment that gratifyingly, if narrowly, avoids embarrassing itself.
There's little that's particularly dramatic or funny for the outsider in this autobiographical vanity project.
Audience Reviews for Frankie and Johnny Are Married
I didn't expect much, but it turned out a decent low-key comedy. Very funny at times and great storytelling.
