"An all-star team on both sides of the camera helps bring to life Evelyn Waugh's acidic satire of death, American style. Robert Morse stars as an aimless British poet-wannabe who stumbles into the funeral business following his uncle's death. Director Tony Richardson places Waugh's gothic satire somewhere between Dr. Strangelove and Lord Love A Duck in its savagely surreal exploration of American greed reaching far beyond the limits of morality and mortality alike. In The Loved One, even the grave is subject to capitalism's savage demands."
- Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club

"sarcastic and in deliciously poor taste, and terribly funny"
- Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

PLUS, on the same double feature:

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING
1966, USA, 126 minutes, 35mm, Park Circus/MGM
Directed by Norman Jewison
Screenplay by William Rose
Based on Nathaniel Benchley's novel ("The Off-Islanders") Starring Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint, Alan Arkin,
Brian Keith, Jonathan Winters, Paul Ford, Theodore Bikel, Tessie O'Shea, John Phillip Law
Sun: 5:30 pm; Mon: 9:50 pm

"Alan Arkin gives a sterling performance, one of the sweetest and most appealing comedic portraits of the decade. His timing is impeccable, and his humanity is crucial to the film's success. Carl Reiner's playwright, the other sane voice in the town, is also wonderfully realized, and he makes the sequence in which he is tied to Tessie O'Shea one of the film's highlights. Although Eva Marie Saint is rather wasted, Brian Keith, Theodore Bikel, and Jonathan Winters all shine. If Russians is not a masterpiece, it's still an excellent opportunity to experience some very fine comedic acting."
- Craig Butler, Allmovie.com
