“A film of such wit and comic invention that it belongs among the great American comedies”
– The Village Voice

“Reveals the essence of marital love more brutally than many confrontational melodramas.”
– Richard Brody

“One of the funniest movies of our unfunny age.”
– Roger Ebert

SUCH GOOD FRIENDS

Starring Dyan Cannon

(1971) Black comedy ensues as ex-oppressed wife Dyan Cannon finds dying husband’s extramarital scorecard, then starts one of her own. Pseudonymous script by Elaine May, with Burgess Meredith’s (“My last chance for a nude scene”) book/jock-strapped dance a bizarre highlight. DCP. Approx. 101 min.

– Roger Ebert
