Critic Reviews for The Art of Love

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

The script's few good ideas are soon flogged to death, although it all becomes interestingly tasteless towards the end.

Nobody demands probability from a farce, but this one keeps its hapless actors so busy explaining what is going on that they have no time to stay for laughs.

On the back lot at Universal City, Love creates a cardboard Paris and fills it with evidence that 1965 is a dull year abroad.

Top Critic

Writer Carl Reiner and director Norman Jewison go aground by allowing too many bits to fill their pot.

Complications arise when Van Dyke returns and discovers Garner's scam. He is not impressed. Neither will you be.

May 6, 2013 | Full Review…

Good cast handles the material well but the film is so bloated with lunacy that it is hard to keep up with.
