"In the age of free love, everything has a price."
A tear-jerky, pseudo-feminist melodrama about "ordinary people" (i.e. bored rich socialites in Liberty City) having cowardly affairs, doing coke in disco boots, getting divorced and fighting for custody of their over-privileged, one-dimensional children in the 1970s. "An American Divorce" won lots of awards because it captured the zeitgeist of a decade that completely threw in the towel on moral responsibility and musical taste. After an hour and a half of watching upper-middleclass white people with enormous afros weep in Algonquin cafes and spurting mawkish dialogue like "But my kids are my life!" and "It's time I did something for myself!", the inevitable happy ending can't come fast enough. We won't ruin it for you, but everyone dies, thank God.
- flirtythirty17 (2/10): This actually seemed longer and more boring than my own divorce.
- wymanhater (4/10): How the hell did this win best screenplay?
- catshagger (7/10): Nobody does over-sentimentality like Solomon Richards.
- givegoodfoot (2/10): I've seen Mexican telenovelas less sappy than this.
- happyspin9 (9/10): The best divorce movie of all time. And I've seen them all.
- noonoo67 (8/10): This was the movie that made divorce cool. Look what happened in the 80s and 90s. Everyone started doing it.
- lopoffthetip (6/10): What an amazing twist at the end! They share custody of the kids and return to their lives!
