Overview

Lovers and Other Strangers became a "sleeper" hit, based on a play by Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna. The story is essentially a series of vignettes and anecdotes, unified by an impending marriage. Father of the bride Hal Gig Young has problems with his long-suffering mistress, Cathy Anne Jackson, who spends much of the film sitting on the toilet, crying her eyes out; Wilma Anne Meara, the bride's sex-starved sister, can't wrest her husband, Johnny Harry Guardino, away from the TV; and Frank Richard S. Castellano, as the groom's father, slips comfortably into Bartlett's Familiar Quotations with his oft-repeated query "So what's the story?" Twelfth-billed Diane Keaton makes her film debut as a garrulous wedding guest.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
This warm, scraggly film indicates the gradual shift in Hollywood depictions of the modern family away from melodramatic, Peyton Place-style storytelling toward a looser, funnier vision of American clans, inspired by the 1960s. A stellar array of character actors and newcomers populate the cast -- including Anne Meara, Cloris Leachman, Richard Castellano, and Diane Keaton, in her first film role -- and director Cy Howard is adroit at cutting among the various incidents leading up to the wedding of naïfs Bonnie Bedelia and Michael Brandon. Though based on a play, Lovers is rarely stagy; screenwriters Joseph Bologna, David Zelag Goodman, and Renée Taylor would be nominated for an Academy Award for their work, as would future Godfather fixture Castellano, for Best Supporting Actor.
