It has the tact to hold back, to trust its characters to somehow fumble through to something that's not love, maybe, but will do.

A charming, hilarious film that skillfully balances the many divergent storylines into a fascinating, entertaining whole.

April 11, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The best element of this Broadway play to the big screen transfer is the acting of the entire ensemble, headed by Richard Castellano, who received a Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.

A witty movie - the success of which Howard never repeated.

Audience Reviews for Lovers and Other Strangers

Great cast but dated episodic comedy. Still its enjoyable to see so many wonderful performers all gathered together and Dishy's apartment is a snapshot of 70's mod decorating.
