Movie Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 10/10 by Jay Scott Kramer vs. Kramer is, essentially, a television movie that was raised into the feature category by the excellence of the execution.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert Kramer vs. Kramer is a movie of good performances, and it had to be, because the performances can't rest on conventional melodrama.
Denver Post - 10/10 by Michael Booth Kramer vs. Kramer is definitely a movie to watch together -- your kids may well seek shelter under your arm, glad to know their own families enjoy more peace.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Gary Arnold A triumph of partisan pathos, a celebration of father-son bonding that astutely succeeds were tearjerkers like "The Champ" so mawkishly failed.
Spirituality and Practice - 9/10 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Offers a revealing look at child custody battles in the courtroom. It's a dirty business and everybody is hurt in the process.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Peter Rainer It's an interesting movie to look back on for its attitudes: In the guise of being a consciousness-raiser it plumps for male tenderness and demonizes the mother who can't recognize how far her workaholic ex-hubbie has come.
New York Times - 9/10 by Vincent Canby [A] fine, witty, moving, most intelligent adaptation of Avery Corman's best-selling novel.
Kansas City Kansan - 9/10 by Steve Crum More controversial in 1979 than now, but still has some gut pucnhes.
People Magazine - 8/10 by Ralph Novak There is so seldom even one great performance in a movie that three is too much to expect. For that reason alone, this story of a couple battling for custody of their young son is a remarkable achievement.
TIME Magazine - 8/10 by Frank Rich Benton gives his film its depth and complexity by challenging the audience's preconceptions and snap opinions at every turn.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by David Sterritt Even when its emotions run a bit out of control, Kramer vs. Kramer is a strong and positive film. Its performances are first-rate, from Hoffman and streep down to Howard Duff (as a divorce lawyer) and a terrifically talented lad named Justin Henry, who visibly matures in his portrayal of Billy, the contested kid.
Film Threat - 6/10 by Felix Vasquez Jr. This excellent struggle of a dad to keep his son by his side is a pure classic, with Hoffman at his best.
