Audience Reviews for Tender Is the Night

Ponderous, overlong adaptation of Fitzgerald's final published novel. Jones is completely wrong in the lead, at least a decade and a half too old and of the wrong temperament, Robards is a great actor but similarly miscast. Jill St. John looks great but doesn't get under the skin of her character. A botched enterprise that looks beautiful but is empty.
