...a part that's perfect for Davis, which makes it odd that Now, Voyager feels the need to do so much of the work for her.

Davis' performance anchors [the story], preventing it from flying off into the realm of camp, turning an outlandish story into one painfully human and universal.

the emotional resonance of Charlotte and Tina's surrogate mother-daughter connection is so strong that the film's plot contrivances are easy to forgive

Now, Voyager contains one classic image and one classic line of dialogue. As for the rest? It's soap opera par excellence.

It's one of the better 'women pictures,' though it got too weepie, mushy and full of itself for me.
March 5, 2011
A superlative, juicy mother-daughter melodrama with top notch performance from Bette Davis, at the top of her form, and the rest of the cast.
December 26, 2010
Lots of appeal for highly romantic teens.

If you can resist Bette Davis in fat suit, hideous dress, and monobrow, you're not as gay as you think you are. I guess I kind of liked it.

It's all far more complicated than it needs to be, but then again, what would you cut?
October 18, 2008
Compulsively watchable four-hankie weepie.

Classic to the max, and with Davis, Henried, and those two cigarettes.
June 21, 2005
Now, Voyager remains a highly narcotic, swoon-inducing romance in the Bette Davis canon.
June 10, 2005
...romantic and romanticized, sudsy and sentimental...a throwback to an earlier age in Hollywood when movies didn't have to be loud or vulgar to sell a point.

Consummate Warner Bros. melodrama, with Bette excellent as misfit and even better as reborn glamour-puss.
August 14, 2003
Classic Davis soaper with Henreid doing the double cigarette bit.
