The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Laurents' screenplay has a shocking sense of character truth, and The Way We Were says things that no one else has dared to say in a major Hollywood movie.
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
This tear-jerkiest of rom-coms about a couple struggling through fundamental differences will hit you right in the feels.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Essentially just a love story, and not sturdy enough to carry the burden of both radical politics and a bittersweet ending.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
An engrossing, if occasionally ludicrous, hit tearjerker with Pollack, Streisand, and Redford doing a good job of bringing Arthur Laurents' script to the screen.
The A.V. Club - Jesse Hassenger
Redford and Streisand are the whole show, so scenes with various supporting characters drag. But Pollack’s film still manages to function as a glossy rebuke to the Hollywood standard of the unlikely romance.

The Way We Were (1973)

Two desperate people have a wonderful romance, but their political views and convictions drive them apart.
