    In a time when our cities are wounded, movies like Grand Canyon can help to heal.

    Grand Canyon successfully recreates the random, haphazard ways in which individual lives intersect, and captures the sense of menace and disintegration that permeate contemporary urban life.
  3. 75
    Grand Canyon is most gripping when Kasdan shows people waking up to the world and finding that they need more than bromides.
  4. Ridiculously ambitious, though often likable and touching in its sincerity.
  5. As sanctimonious as it is sincere, this is a well-meaning picture that is seriously stuck on itself, that can't hide its air of self-satisfaction. [25 Dec 1991]
  6. [Grand Canyon] eventually pulls its punches, taking an unconvincingly beatific look at the problems and dangers that have been so persuasively outlined in what has come before. But until it hits that false note, Mr. Kasdan's film is at least as fascinating as it is amorphous.
  7. The cast is equally strong (especially McDonnell), but the vast subject and the shifting settings force Kasdan all over the map. [10 Jan 1992]
