May 24, 2003
A turgidly formulaic disease-of-the-week film elevated to cinematic status purely due to the presence of Pacino.

Sydney Pollack here doesn't go beyond the vulgar soap opera. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 9, 2008
A resonant Pacino...though ultimately a misfire, suggests that there are worse things to call a movie than 'a curiosity.' [DVD review]

Those who feel that Al Pacino did no wrong during the 1970s obviously never saw Bobby Deerfield.

Bobby Deerfield may turn out to be the year's most cynical movie made by people who know better, including Sydney Pollack, the director, and Alvin Sargent, who wrote the screenplay.

March 1, 2008
One of Sydney Pollack's worst films, this sechmaltzy romantic drama about the life and loves of a car racer (poorly played by Al Pacino) has no redeeming qualities in either length; Pollack recut the film to 99 minutes for TV.

A classic example of a Hollywood director being struck down by a lethal 'art' attack as soon as he sets foot in Europe.
May 26, 2008
This gorgeously shot film is a trifle long at just over two hours; much of the racing footage could have been dispensed with, along with the sudsiest of the emotions.

Sydney Pollack, who once took the unlikely materials that made up The Way We Were and pulled them together to come sailing triumphantly home, has done it again in Bobby Deerfield.
July 2, 2018
Bobby Deerfield is a big, slick melodrama that knows exactly what it wants to accomplish and does so with great craft.

Pacino is at his best: precise, internal, magnetically cute, and expert at capturing the fear in this man's turtle-like existence and his longing for change.

A brilliantly unusual love story, told in a European fashion which makes the Sydney Pollack film at first irritating, then intriguing, finally most rewarding and emotionally satisfying.
