Audience Reviews for The Seduction of Joe Tynan

  • Apr 01, 2007
    Strong drama of morals and ambition. Alda does very well in the lead providing a strong center to the picture and he's aided by two superior actresses, one on the way up Meryl Streep and the other Barbara Harris always under appreciated. Meryl is vulnerable and appealing but Barbara Harris is the treasure, giving the film's best performance and providing the heart that would be missing with her contribution. Also notable is Melvyn Douglas giving another of the marvelous supporting performances that were a staple of the twilight of his career.
