Audience Reviews for Harry and Tonto

The pinnacle of Art Carney's later career. We have the story of man forced onto the street with only a beloved cat as companion. Naturally the humanity of the character is brought forth with the change in his circumstances and Carney's interactions with those he meets are memorable.

Paul Mazursky's best film ever! A beautiful story with a freshing screenplay, directing and the acting of Art Carney, Academy Award winner by is role in this movie. Harry and Tonto is touching.

Mazursky has crafted a story populated with humanity and decency, and where the only true villain is father time. Harry and Tonto is sort of a modernized, colorized and Americanized version of Umberto D.. Sad but still heartwarming.

Sweet movie. Funny at times and sad too. Amazing that Art Carney was able to portray this role because he was only known for his goofy character on the honeymooners. The young actors who play his children who eventually go on to big careers are great too.
