Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What a pack of trashy people these accomplished actors perform!
Fresh: A formaldehyded tabby that sits static while layer after layer of its skin is peeled off, life after life of its nine lives unsentimentally destroyed.
Fresh: An intense, important motion picture.
Fresh: Burl Ives and Judith Anderson are highly entertaining as the nightmare parents, Big Daddy and Big Mama, and Jack Carson has one of his last good roles as Newman's competitive older brother.
This movie is phenomenal !! The acting is great. A must see!!
This is Paul and Elizabeth, both at their most beautiful. Take your time, and enjoy the leisurely pace. The Southern Accents are pretty terrible, but like the other reviewer stated, the last minute of the movie is amazing. Its completely clean, but the hottest, most senual minute in film.
Kept my attention, and the ending was priceless! I can identify with Maggie, her love is strong and she stayed on the roof despite the heat. Loved what she did to one of the no neck monsters in the beginning. Buy this movie. You will laugh, cry and then cheer with excitement. Burl Ives was an awesome Big Daddy. I plan to watch it again.
