Winning, sweet-natured '80s romcom has profanity.

Field relaxes into a sunny and seductive performance. She and Garner play off each other beautifully.
February 29, 2016
Martin Ritt directs the screenplay by Harriet Frank Jr. and Irving Ravetch, who cross the country wisdom of Tennessee Ernie Ford with the stale wit of the Johnny Carson joke team.
February 29, 2016
The picture just lumbers along, lightly propelled by a series of contrived conflicts ... and anecdotal observations that don't add up to much.
February 29, 2016
Director Martin Ritt and screenwriters Harriet Frank, Jr., and Irving Ravetch rely too heavily on little vignette sequences to move the narrative, a technique that quickly becomes tedious and predictable.

January 23, 2013
Mildly engaging but well acted romantic melodrama, especially by James Garner, who received his first and only Best Actor Oscar nomination for playing a small-town pharmacist.

March 26, 2009
Unfortunately, this sweet and homey picture which casts two very decent actors (Sally Field and James Garner) in two very decent roles, falls far short of compelling filmmaking.
February 9, 2006
A depressing barometer of contemporary Hollywood.
June 3, 2004
A quirky May-December romancer that's subtle and low key in its sweetness. Garner and Field make for an unlikely romantic tandem
| Original Score: 4/5
March 24, 2004
Despite Field's full-on personality, which dominates the screen most of the time, Garner's laid-back charm is allowed to shine through.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Garner and Miss Field are able comic actors, but they can't be much better than the corny material, the occasional one-liners and an overall sunniness that refuses to set.
July 25, 2002
Amiable light rom-com.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 15, 2002
A delightful romantic comedy about a widower and a single parent who learn to listen once again to the promptings of the hearts when love surprises them.
January 1, 2000
"Murphy's Romance" takes a whole movie to arrive at the conclusion that takes us two minutes, but that doesn't mean this is a predictable movie.
