Pauline Kael New Yorker Joseph L. Mankiewicz's bad taste, exhibited with verve, is more fun than careful, mousy, dehydrated good taste. His nonsense about "theatre" is saved by one performance that is the real thing: Bette Davis is at her most instinctive and assured. Jul 28, 2022 Full Review Richard L. Coe Washington Post You'll want to see All Abut Eve a couple of times. Jul 26, 2022 Full Review Times (UK) Staff Times (UK) The script is well capable of carrying out the film's intentions -- it is, indeed, an admirable piece of work and not lacking in wit. Feb 17, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand The barbed dialogue is witty and wonderful, delivered with tart insolence by Bette Davis as ... an aging Broadway lioness who watches ruthless cub Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter) pull out her claws as she purrs and insinuates herself into stardom. Aug 19, 2023 Full Review Mark Johnson Awards Daily A penetrating anecdote on the viciousness of narcissism, cynicism, deceit, and celebrity, All About Eve is one of the most revolutionary and sharp-edged screenplays ever written. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies All About Eve proved to Hollywood that Bette Davis wasn't ready to quit and it remains one of the greatest films ever made. Rated: 5/5 Mar 26, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Pamela A Betty Davis is the only reason I could watch this stupid movie Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/30/24 Full Review alan g Great acting and a great script. Bette Davis at her bitchy best. Anne Baxter and Celeste Holm are fantastic. Even Marilyn Monroe gives a look at what is to come. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/28/24 Full Review Yash B "All About Eve" is one of those classic movies that feels timeless because of the lessons and commentary presented. I feel like it is not trapped by the era it is from and can really be enjoyed for the rest of time. The performances are all first rate and the script is exceptional. The dialogue moves a mile a minute and every bit of it is designed to move the plot forward and tell us more about these characters. I do feel story wise it can get maybe a tad bit repetitive, but I still think it is charming and enjoyable, and also very sharp. Overall, it is a good classic movie that shines bright in the already populated 1950s era of Hollywood. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review John S It's not a perfect movie but the performances are very entertaining. It's one part vampy chess game and one part cautionary tale. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Domenick Tremendous craftsmanship, but not as moving and indelible as some other movies in "the canon." Everyone knows its a meditation on the fleeting nature of stardom and apparent ubiquity of petty jealousy and associated betrayals but it seems almost no one can remember plot specifics more than a week or two after seeing it. The towering reputation is inextricably tied to the cult of Betty Davis - and this is arguably her greatest role (apparently Ebert agrees). Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Merick H One of the greatest films ever made. The writing is excellent and the performances are superb. It is a gripping picture. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review Read all reviews
