I read the book ages ago and as per the usual from what I remember I enjoyed the book more, but I love this movie. The performances are great. I'm not a fan of Nick Nolte but I love him in the title role. Melinda Dillon is very sweet as his sister Savanah and Blythe Danner is great as his wife. The chemistry between Nick and Barbara is amazing and although the ending of the movie is realistic, I wish it had gone in a different direction. That being said the movie is amazing and well acted. I do recommend the book by Pat Conroy as well.

VERY GOOD 1991 film starring and produced by Barbra Stanwyck - fab performance by Nick Nolte, fine by Barbra and others. The dysfunctional family aspects were a bit hard on me - especially all the cursing, screaming hate speech - but there were enough positive aspects that I'm glad I watched it.
Fun to see mature Barbra at almost 50. and demonstrating her advances in film production, etc. - she's much more than just a singer.

I liked the movie. I loved the book. I would recommend reading the book before seeing the movie.

Is there anything worse than belonging to a dysfunctional family? Maybe. The film sometimes seems like it is a masterpiece and at others times it seems just very very good.

This is a good lesson for non-family oriented people. It leaves a message to the society that family value matters. Every people has problem in their life but never give up. I loved the character of tom and it's fully understandable the way why he is. The name perfectly suites "The prince of tides"

Definitely an empowering film would recommend reading the book first.

Meet ritzy-schmitzy, Park Avenue psychiatrist, Dr. Susan Loenstein, played by none other than "bum-note" Barbra Streisand, herself._____ One day when the emotionally disturbed Tom Wingo shows up at her swank office seeking help, what does this supposedly professional, highly ethical and married woman do as a means of therapy for Tom?_____ Well, this low-down, sleazy, two-timing bitch initiates sex with him! That's right._____ And if that wasn't distasteful enough - Literally half of this film's running time is then given over to an utterly shitty "love affair" that immediately transpires between these two major arse-holes, Tom & Sue._____ We watch Tom & Sue eating cotton-candy. We watch Tom & Sue laughing so joyfully. We watch Tom & Sue skipping together along the beach. (Tra-la-la-la!) We watch so much of frickin' Tom & Sue that it makes me want to puke my guts out._____ You know, it really figures that it was "America's Treasure", Barbra Streisand, who's the one to be held responsible for directing this detestable crap._____ This movie is pure garbage! I don't believe for a minute that its story is supposed to be a statement, protesting against the sexual abuse of children.

This is one of the very best movies I have ever seen...Nick Nolte was great! Very moving.
