Critic Reviews for Friends

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It is an odd, uneven, but unfailingly generous and winning film.

The music by Elton John and Bernie Taupin for Lewis Gilbert's Friends, on the other hand, is rather better than the picture deserves.

March 17, 2020 | Full Review…

It's so cynical in its manipulation of youth, innocence, sunsets and all the rest that you squirm with embarrassment.

December 11, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The tale is told with every delicacy and one doesn't believe a word.

March 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Filtered through the decades of pop culture, Friends is where D. H. Lawrence's "love ethic" has come to rest.

Friends owes more to shampoo commercials than art.
