Critic Reviews for Moment by Moment

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Moment by Moment is a Grade-A stinker, hatched under Stigwood auspices for the greater mortification of Lily Tomlin and John Travolta, locked in excruciating erotic two-step as a melancholy Beverly Hills housewife and her hopeful lover boy.

Top Critic

Critics are fond of attributing a film's badness to some hypothetical computer: this truly terrible movie might have been made by HAL in his most maudlin "Bicycle-built-for-two" mood, as the plugs were being pulled out.

Audience Reviews for Moment by Moment

I actually liked this movie. I started watching it out of curiosity, to see young John Travolta and Lily Tomlin in a romance together, but kept watching it to see what would happen. I image this is what some romance novels are like. Sweet, sexy, caring young man falls for woman who doesn't feel appreciated. My main complaint would be that the tempo dragged at points. There was plenty of nudity, though not full nudity, the plot was interesting, and it had a happy ending. :)
