Barbra Streisand critics like to harp on her narcissism, but there's no questioning her overwhelming generosity on this project. The movie completely belongs to Nick Nolte, who delivers a career-best performance.

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.

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.

As director, Streisand shows compassion for Pat Controy's Southern Gothic novel, and the film works better as a study of troubled childhood and male menopause than as romance between psychiatrist (poorly played by Streisand) and Nick Nolte as her patient

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.

Pretty good romantic soap...except for Streisand's talons.

The musical score of the film is somewhat overbearing, but most other production values, such as editing, script-writing and direction are above average.

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

Nolte is so good, if he doesn't win at least an Oscar nomination as best actor, it will be to the Academy's shame.

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