Critic Reviews

  1. Class Action won't put you to sleep. Yet it vanishes from the memory as fast as anything dreamed in the conventional manner.
  2. Baltimore Sun
    Reviewed by: Stephen Hunter
    The political correctness of Class Action verwhelms its sense of life. It turns into just another movie. [15 Mar 1991]
  3. Chicago Tribune
    Reviewed by: Dave Kehr
    Class Action occupies itself with long passages of family melodrama, most of it as familiar as the courtroom drama but far less entertaining. [15 Mar 1991]
  4. USA Today
    Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    There is cinematic art, and there's a good evening out; this is the latter. [15 Mar 1991]
  5. Gene Hackman is excellent when he isn't overdoing his patented nice-guy routine.
  6. The liberal pieties underlying the script become so simplistic and predominant that they ultimately deprive the characters and the story of the density and edge they might have had.
  7. Reviewed by: Kim Newman
    Class Action, which becomes unbearable whenever the lead characters talk about their relationship, has precisely two and a half things going for it, the half being Mastrantonio's Italian grin.
