Critic Reviews for Dear Heart

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

[Dear Heart] is a stale, dull and humorless pretension at what its producers dare to describe as "gay, sophisticated comedy," and it makes almost scandalous misuse of the recognized talents of Geraldine Page.

...a slow-moving drama that's been suffused with a whole host of ineffective, time-wasting attributes...

February 19, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a kind of middle-class Marty, a less melancholy Summertime, and, for an hour-and-a-half out of two, touching and pleasant to watch.

Geraldine Page is clearly a most desirable woman, so they have given her the handicap of a poisonous personality, and most men in the audience may wonder why on earth Glenn Ford, of all people, wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

A pleasant offbeat romantic comedy about middle-aged opposites making a love connection against all odds.

Audience Reviews for Dear Heart


Sweet, gentle comedy-drama of two lonely souls slowly realizing they are meant for each other. Great supporting cast, where else will you see both Gladys Kravitz together in the same movie? Geraldine Page has never been more endearing. Great theme song, a charmer.
