Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The fact that [it] isn't very funny and, like its 80-year-old heroic, long outlives its necessary life, is less important than the fact that the characters frequently react gently or like credible human beings to the script's impossible notions.
Fresh: It is most successful when it keeps to the tone of an insane fairystory set up at the beginning of the movie.
Fresh: They remain among cinema's most disconcerting odd couples.
Love the Jag/Hearse!
One of the greats! Fantastic characters... You have to admire Harold's determination.
This was my yardstick to determine if my friends should be my friend. If I showed Harold and Maude and they did not enjoy , understand, see the sheer beauty in the film and its meaning. I did not think we could be friends. I think and wish we were all as enthusiastic abt life and Maude. I try and be Maude every day. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the movie. And the music is perfect. It's a 11 in my book
Harold and Maude is an incredible dark-comedy with a great cast and an interesting story.
