The Prince of Tides Reviews

February 3, 2012
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.

The Prince of Tides marks Ms. Streisand's triumphantly good job of locating that story's salient elements and making them come alive on the screen.

Streisand hyperbolizes everything, from James Newton Howard's whackingly obtrusive score to Nick Nolte's overripe narration.
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.

When her good sense doesn't yield to hubris, Streisand shows the polish of a veteran director in handling this complicated form.

A big-hearted performance by Nick Nolte puts The Prince of Tides over the top.
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.
