THIS MOVIE SUCKS!

this is not a romantic comedy!! if you are struggling with your relationship, don't see this! it's mostly sad, depressing and overwhelming to see the situations in these couple's lives.

Love is a many-splendored thing in Robert Benton's dull romantic fantasy Feast of Love, though none of its splendors rings true. Full Review
The story teeters on the edge of soap opera and emotional manipulation, but director Robert Benton (Kramer vs. Kramer) pulls back in the nick of time. What results is an involving and often poignant examination of love and loss. Full Review
Feast of Love's greatest strength is that it's about people and involves universal emotions. It's not great art but it is enjoyable soap opera. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
What passes for the movie's reality is interlocking episodes of ersatz ecstasy and angst -- a Cupid-governed "Crash" -- plus snippets of wisdom dispensed by Mr. Freeman's character. Full Review
Septuagenarian director Robert Benton brings his characteristically fine touch with actors and appreciation for the female form to this tastefully erotic ensembler, but compassion finally outstrips insight in a drama as soft-headed as it is soft-hearted. Full Review
