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
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.
This movie addresses a very real problem for many closeted gay men and their families - it was well done and seemes very progressive for when it was made.
