"Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern and Ellen Burstyn that's a hell of a quality lead cast you have right there, and their performances in The King Of Marvin Gardens are certainly great. The film itself is an odd one, slightly rambling, melancholic and a little surreal, perhaps a little too talky for modern audiences too. But overall I enjoyed it, the 70's truly was a golden era of American Cinema and quite frankly it makes a nice change to be treated with a level of intelligence when you watch a movie."

"Jack Nicholson plays the typical Bruce Dern role and Bruce Dern plays the typical Jack Nicholson role in this groovy crime/drama from Bob Rafelson. Ellen Burstyn completes the triangle of cool. "
