Kramer vs. Kramer Reviews

May 6, 2017
A triumph of partisan pathos, a celebration of father-son bonding that astutely succeeds were tearjerkers like "The Champ" so mawkishly failed.

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.

Kramer vs. Kramer is greatly enriched by its exceptional cast.
February 19, 2013
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.

Kramer Vs. Kramer is a perceptive, touching, intelligent film about one of the raw sores of contemporary America, the dissolution of the family unit.

Benton's direction must first be praised for his choice of actors and his collaboration with them.

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

Kramer vs. Kramer is definitely a movie to watch together -- your kids may well seek shelter under your arm, glad to know their own families enjoy more peace.

Misogynistic claptrap.
June 24, 2006
A high class modern weepie.
October 23, 2004
Kramer vs. Kramer wouldn't be half as good as it is -- half as intriguing and absorbing -- if the movie had taken sides.

[A] fine, witty, moving, most intelligent adaptation of Avery Corman's best-selling novel.
