There is a natural rhythm to the film that makes its own quiet, life-affirming statement.

Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, 2013-02-06

 

When it sometimes seems the whole society has spiritually decamped for Tinseltown, the movie offers the hope that people can come home again-at least for a visit.

Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, 2011-06-07

 

Without question, these are major, meaty roles for Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda, and there could have been little doubt that the two would work superbly together.

Variety Staff, Variety, 2008-02-04

 

Watching the movie, I felt I was witnessing something rare and valuable.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2004-10-23

 

On Golden Pond is a mixed blessing, but it offers one performance of rare quality and three others that are very good. That's not half-bad.

Vincent Canby, New York Times, 2004-08-30

 

Two of Hollywood's best-loved veterans deserved a far better swan song than this sticky confection.

Review, Time Out, 2006-01-26

 

The cinematic equivalent of shrink-wrapping, in which all of the ideas, feelings, characters, and images are neatly separated and hermetically sealed to prevent spoilage, abrasion, or any contact with the natural world.

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, 2000-01-01
