  • Elizabeth Taylor and Susannah York both turn in performances that fully capture the excellently conceived characters of Edna O'Brien's original screenplay.

  • One of those follies that everyone involved (especially writer Edna O'Brien) must look back on with cringing embarrassment.

  • The movie in this case is no masterpiece, but audiences are having fun at it because it unzips along at a nice, vulgar clip.

  • Given free rein by the director, Taylor is clearly having fun with the part. The story alone isn't much, but, inflated by the Taylor hurricane, the movie works as an incredible portrait of a marriage on the rocks.

  • With lifeless direction and the acting talent all appearing to have off days, this frivolous nonsense makes for depressing viewing.

    Middling drama that doesn't really take advantage of its trio of stars. Liz is stuck in harridan mode again.
