Critic Reviews for Making Love
This is a three-handkerchief movie, all right, but for the nose. It stinks.
This movie has some of the worst dialogue one can imagine: She: 'What about passion?' He: 'What about support?' She: 'What about betrayal?'
Once the cat is out of the bag, the movie turns rip-roaring awful in an entirely enjoyable way.
Unfortunately, Hiller doesn't command the intensity of feeling that might have made it emotionally valid, and he doesn't have the awareness of the cultural forces at work in his film that might have made it intellectually respectable.
On its own baby-step terms, and despite its moneyed vanilla-himbo vision of gay masculinity and desire, Making Love plays now as a bemusing anachronism but not an insulting or self-inflating one.
Audience Reviews for Making Love
Beautiful love story about a married couple whose marriage is jeapordised when the husband discovers that he is attracted to other men. Michael Ontkean, Harry Hamlin and Kate Jackson all turn in excellent performances. The ending will leave you in tears.
Making Love (1982) -- [6.0] -- It's mawkish, awkward, and in need of a subtlety injection, but I like "Making Love" anyway. As one of the earliest big studio mainstream films to feature openly gay characters who are neither serial killers nor flaming queens, I have to give the flick some cred. Plus, we get to see Harry Hamlin (LA Law, Clash of the Titans) get it on with Michael Ontkean (Sheriff Truman from Twin Peaks). Charlie's Angel Kate Jackson completes the love triangle and has a few nice moments in the film to herself. I dig the way Jackson and Hamlin's characters talk directly to the camera between vignettes. Leonard Rosenman's simple piano-driven score is also a nice touch.
Dated but well intentioned and at the time ground breaking drama. The male leads are good but best of all is Kate Jackson, its a shame she didn't make it in features. Wendy Hiller offers a lovely performance in a small role.
