"John & Mary" is a 1969 American
romantic dramafilm directed by Peter Yates. It stars Mia Farrowas Mary, and Dustin Hoffmanas John, directly on the heels of " Rosemary's Baby" and " Midnight Cowboy", respectively (as well as " Bullit" for Yates). The screenplaywas adapted by John Mortimerfrom Mervyn Jones' novel.
It was released theatrically in
North Americaon December 14, 1969. [ [http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=johnandmary.htm Box Office Mojo.] ] It received an R rating upon its original release, [ [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064513/ Ratings @ IMDb.] ] which was later downgraded to a PG rating.
"John & Mary" begins the morning after John and Mary meet in a bar, during a conversation about
Jean-Luc Godard's " Week End", and go home with each other. The story unfolds during the day as they belatedly get to know each other over breakfast, lunch and dinner. Flashbacks of their previous bad relationships are interspersed throughout when something in their conversation brings the thought up.
Roger Ebertof the Chicago Sun-Timessays, "John and Mary" is supposed to be a contemporary movie, I guess, and yet it's curiously out of touch. John and Mary shadow box uneasily with the American language, trying to sound like all people their age without sounding too much like any particular person." [ [http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19691223/REVIEWS/912230301/1023 Roger Ebert @ RogerEbert.com.] ] John Thompson of the Orlando Weeklycalls it "a delectable New Wave–inspired dish for thoughtful viewers tired of the same old menu." [ [http://www.orlandoweekly.com/film/review.asp?rid=12335 John Thompson @ Orlando Weekly.] ] Vincent Canbyof the New York Timesconcludes, "There is nothing wrong with the idea of John and Mary, just with its execution."
