      M e Super heartfelt. I loved this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/24/23 Full Review Michael T At an hour and 34 minutes it still took a long time getting where it was going, with a lot of filler music and ethnic scenes that didn't do much to carry the story along. Amy Irving got more gorgeous as the story went on. Sam Riegert, as the unlikely suitor, rose to the occasion as well. It all came together with romantic tension in the last 20 minutes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review Lisa R Absolutely charming. The grandmother is just a gem. Watch this when you need a lift, which is all too often these days. Note, you'll have to explain some things to your kids, like phones, no computers, and no Uber or Lyft. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/12/22 Full Review Audience Member The little details elevate this thing (the old lady self defense class, the woman singing "Some Enchanted Evening", everything with the marriage broker, etc.) beyond the conventions of the genre. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a very memorable movie. I've seen it a couple of times, but there are better movies out there with the same plot. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Long, boring, gives Jewish women a bad name… Should I go on? The grandma and the matchmaker are the only good parts of the movie. And the pickle man. The quintessential Jewish guy looking to get married… He's OK. But amy Irving is horrible. Boring, ugly inside and out, and clearly in over her head with this role.

      Sheila Benson Los Angeles Times From its first romantic encounter, as two pairs of eyes lock across a crowded room, to its last tremulous one, Crossing Delancey is unqualified pleasure, bound on every side by love. May 16, 2023 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times Miss Irving, who's in virtually every scene, gives Izzy a refreshing worldliness, a hint of disappointment and a hard-won wisdom that banish any trace of ingenuousness from the role. May 16, 2023 Full Review Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer Vulpine Riegert, a terrific under-player in such films as Local Hero and Animal House, is a phenomenon. It's in Riegert's careful modulations of tone, his knack for making understatements emphatic, that he gives dignity and intelligence to Sam. Rated: 3/4 May 16, 2023 Full Review Molly Haskell Vogue The implausible and the irresistible come joyfully together. May 16, 2023 Full Review Marshall Fine Journal News (Westchester, NY) Crossing Delancey is a small, unexpected treasure. It's a feel-good movie that lifts you up without insulting your intelligence or pandering to your soft side. Rated: 3.5/4 May 16, 2023 Full Review Dennis King Tulsa World Silver is a filmmaker with a wonderful capacity for creating fully realized characters on screen, characters that are worthy of an audience's affection.
