All Critics (23) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (3)

  • It is a vivid, almost sensually rancid slice of 1970s cinema, a movie in which you can almost taste the sweat in the air.

    June 15, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • What emerges is a profound, unsentimental portrait of male friendship-and of its ultimate impossibility.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • [Director Elaine] May's film is a nuclear attack on toxic masculinity, and among the more challenging films I've ever watched... It's necessary. Seeing is believing.

    May 5, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The finale gives all that came before a greater sense of dread as we realize that Nicky's mounting paranoia might have been the only thing protecting him from the start.

    March 12, 2021 | Full Review…
  • An excellent recuperation of what may have been Elaine May's most accomplished achievement, Mikey and Nicky is a sublimely sad, shockingly grim portrait of friendship, toxic masculinity and the dismal realities of duplicity.

    August 14, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A meticulously constructed character study with all the verve and energy of improvisation.

    Elaine May pulls no punches here. She allows Falk and Cassavetes to wallow in their character's most toxic tendencies and yet you still see their humanity.

    a black comedy w/o jokes, and like a Cassavettes movie w/o excess, every action goes the real way not the movie way; it hurts

    Cassavettes and Falk together for two hours...need I say more?

    Not a typical mob movie, they are more of a side story. The real story is basically shot like a case study of two friends. It was a good movie and it was nice to see Peter Falk in a different type role, since this was the Columbo era. It shows a friend pushing his other to the breaking point through deceit and selfishness. It had very good acting and you could believe the bond between Falk and Casavetes. The end has a nice build up with a sudden but warranted end.
