Critic Reviews for Save the Tiger
Only days after seeing the picture do we realize just how much "Save The Tiger" has to say.
Avildsen has a particular talent for recreating lifelike situations. Here, his camera works like a magnet, picking up each squalid detail.
Lemmon is acutely sensitive at earning pity in this exceptional acting achievement. His brain in a vise is yours, for a time.
The only thing that saves "Save the Tiger" is Lemmon's highly believable dramatic performance.
Just a few wry degrees in another direction would have made us scorn Harry and his sentimental self-serving values. But, Lemmon is a great sympathy-bidder and his worst punishment is to feel sad.
Audience Reviews for Save the Tiger
A tour de force for Lemmon. Consider this to be a bridge between the early great comedic work and the really marvelous dramatic work of his later career.
Set fire to the factory. Supply women for the clients. Harry Stoner will do anything to get one more season.
The greatest performance ever given by an actor and Jack Lemmon delivers this in his breathtaking Oscar winning role. One of the top ten best films of 1973.
