A pleasant film about an old man who rejuvenates himself on a cross-country trek.
Mazursky has escaped Fellini's shadow; when everyone's back from going to 'look for America', he might have something interesting to say.
It's not easy to make comedies that work as drama, too. But Carney's acting is so perceptive that it helps this material succeed.
The muted style robs the picture of the liberating point it's meant to make: that imaginative energy transcends the generations.
You may find much of this, despite the apparent sincerity, too cutesy and self-satisfied for its own good.
Affectionate but contrived odyssey folk tale.
A seventy year old man from New York City travels across the country and discovers the joy, the confusion and the stoutness of the human adventure.
Paul Mazursky's sentimental, upbeat serio-comedy about a widower who takes to the road with his cat after being evicted form his home is lifted above the routine TV Movie of the Week by the solid turn of Art Carney, who won the Best Actor Oscar.
Worth seeing for Carney's performance
A bona finde classic, and a rare road movie that features a cat as the wheel-man.
I remember it being better than I expected, but at the same time, that's all I remember. Pleasant, forgettable.
[A] touching comedy drama ...
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.
