[George Roy] Hill's "Garp" is a dense, rich, textured work, a sequence of scenes ultimately creating a complex, complicated life, one that is at once funny, horrifying and heartbreaking. Full Review

If the tragedy of this movie is its subliminal sexism, perhaps its hope lies in a sequel: The World According to Jenny. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Something has to be wrong with a film that can take material as intractable as Garp and make it palatable. Full Review

True to the spirit of the novel, the film compels us to consider the ambiguities of love, death, sex, and violence that characterize modern life.Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Conceived in a hospital room by the independent, strong-willed Jenny Fields (who makes sure to choose a father who can never interfere with her decisions), T.S. Garp grows up in the placid academic atmosphere of the exclusive New England boy's school where Jenny works. As Garp becomes a man, the film shifts between the events that shape his world and those that shape his mother's. While Garp follows a "normal" path -- marrying, becoming a father, and establishing himself as an author and teacher -- Jenny continues to make extraordinary decisions and allies herself with a very strange group of characters. And through it all, Jenny remains a powerful, inescapable influence on her son.
