Movie Reviews

An Underrated Classic!
A. Scott | Minneapolis, MN USA | 04/03/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a brilliant example of what life was like in late 1960s New York. Coming right after their big hit films, Hoffman (MIDNIGHT COWBOY) and Farrow (ROSEMARY'S BABY) show a completely different, intimate side to their acting. While the film is somewhat fragmented, stick with it: you will find ultimate satisfaction in the story of two rather confused people trying to be as "urbanized" as their surroundings. One highlight is the "egg scene," in which the two engage in a discussion of organic foods. There are also many terrific appearances in character roles: Tyne Daly (CAGNEY AND LACEY) as one of Farrow's roommates and Marian Mercer (who had just won a Tony Award for PROMISES, PROMISES) as a self-absorbed fashion photographer stand out. All in all, a really gratifying cinematic experience."
60s Nostalgia...
Laurel-Rain Snow "Rain" | Fresno, California | 12/16/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"John & Mary is typical of the era which is featured in this tale of two singles, beaten down by the dating game, who meet at a local club in Manhattan and spend a twenty-four hour period together.

Viewed from each character's eyes, we see the cynicism that cloaks their vulnerability, as each one looks at his/her life through flashbacks.

Mia Farrow and Dustin Hoffman portray the characters very well -- the four stars are due to the somewhat tired story of singles life in the sixties."
