Misogynistic claptrap.
February 26, 2007
Another in a long list of those overrated Oscar winners for Best Picture.

Set up to make Hoffman seem like the good guy, and it's so confident that we'll root for him that it gets sloppy.

It's an interesting movie to look back on for its attitudes: In the guise of being a consciousness-raiser it plumps for male tenderness and demonizes the mother who can't recognize how far her workaholic ex-hubbie has come.
February 20, 2008
Hugely popular on its initial release, this looks, in retrospect, like nothing much more than a glossy soap passed off as serious drama.

Kramer vs. Kramer is greatly enriched by its exceptional cast.

What Benton achieved with his screenplay he intensified with his direction. Each performance is a minor miracle of perfection - not only Hoffman's and Streep's, which dominate the picture, but each of the supporting roles as well.

Hoffman excels at being an Everyman, a modern professional whose life is rearranged by a child, a movie cliché that he pulls off without a trace of melodrama.

Benton gives his film its depth and complexity by challenging the audience's preconceptions and snap opinions at every turn.
