Nolte's terrific performance isn't enough to save this sappy, painfully phony piece of psychobabble.

They do make 'em like it any more.
December 25, 1991
The Prince of Tides is a big, messy, go-for-the-throat soap opera, the sort of movie in which every third scene feels like one of those soul-spilling climaxes they use for clips on Oscar night.

Self-indulgent, soap opera nonsense.
February 3, 2012
Directed with loving care by Barbra Streisand, this adaptation of the best-seller also boasts a serious flaw: Streisand herself.

January 1, 2000
An assured and very serious love story that allows neither humor nor romance to get in the way of its deeper and darker subject.

Babs and Noltes at their best

February 3, 2012
Graced with fine performances and commendably biting off more than it can ever hope to chew, The Prince Of Tides is a rare slice of romantic moviemaking for all those grown-ups feeling ignored since Kramer Vs. Kramer last rattled their value systems.

The results may seem overripe and dated in spots, but she coaxes a fine performance out of Nolte, and the other actors (herself included) acquit themselves honorably.
October 18, 2008
A deeply moving exploration of the tangled emotions of a dysfunctional Southern family, this lovingly crafted (though unevenly scripted) film of Pat Conroy's novel centers on Nick Nolte's performance of a lifetime.
January 1, 2000
A big-hearted performance by Nick Nolte puts The Prince of Tides over the top.
May 12, 2001
Streisand hyperbolizes everything, from James Newton Howard's whackingly obtrusive score to Nick Nolte's overripe narration.
