TV Guide
One problem with the film is that it does nothing to endear the Catskill social setting to an audience; the inhabitants seem to be competing for awards in obnoxiousness.

I love this movie! Not only is it a gripping love story, it also touches on many socio-political issues that occurred in the US in the 50s and 60s.
