This critically-acclaimed comedy by Woody Allen is a hilarious game of marital musical chairs, as two New York couples re-examine their marriages...and find themselves wanting more. Allen stars with Mia Farrow as a long-married couple whose relationship starts to crumble when their best friends, played by Sydney Pollack and Judy Davis, announce they're separating. They immediately pair up with younger, sexier paramours and enjoy again the pleasures of fresh passion. But smoldering resentments and unexpected jealousies soon rise to the surface, erupting in savage humor and hilariously unpredictable reunions. A directorial tour-de-force, Husbands And Wives is a comic valentine from an American Master.

"Fiercely funny! A groundbreaking film.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Mature, penetrating... excellent cast...  VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever
"Smart and funny.  Larry Frascella, US Magazine

Editor's Note
Gabe and Judy Roth (Woody Allen and Mia Farrow), a long-married couple, find their relationship starting to crumble when their best friends, Jack and Sally (Sydney Pollack and Judy Davis), announce that they are separating. Allen's use of a hand-held camera and jump-cuts adds immediacy to a brilliant display of ensemble acting. Pollack delivers an Oscar-worthy performance.

Memorable Quotes

"But we would be most remiss as film connoisseurs and auteur buffs if we did not underscore the disturbing similarities between the events depicted in LOLITA and the events that have actually transpired in the Allen--Farrow contretemps. And we would be even more remiss if we did not wonder aloud how it was possible for an individual as steeped in cinematic lore as Mr. Allen to ignore the moral warnings signs that had been planted firmly in his path by a film such as LOLITA and others of this ilk----black--and--white pictures that regularly played at the Bleecker Steet Cinema, the Carnegie Hall Cinema, the Thalia, the Regency, and all the other arty Greenwich Village film houses where Allen spent his formative years."---- Joe Queenan, Movieline, 1/1993

New York Times
"...A very fine, sometimes brutal comedy....Acted to loopy perfection by a remarkable cast..." 09/18/1992 p.C1

Los Angeles Times
"...A remarkably self-revealing film..." 09/18/1992 p.F1

Chicago Sun-Times
