Inherit the Wind
CRITICS OF "Inherit the Wind"
Apollo Guide

February 11, 2002

A most worthwhile film, if for no other reason, because it provides a great opportunity to watch Tracy and March go at it in a most entertaining fashion.
Time Out

February 09, 2006

Tolerably gripping in its old-fashioned way, thanks chiefly to old pro performances from Tracy and March as the rival lawyers and ideologists.
Q Network Film Desk

January 01, 2002

Producer-director Stanley Kramer ably handles the incendiary material visually, making good use of deep focus and careful compositions
TV Guide

August 13, 2007

Absorbing, if long-winded courtroom drama bolstered by two fine central performances from Tracy and March.
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

April 04, 2003

Extraordinarly vivid, rich, and wise about the core questions of how we know and who we are.
Atlantic City Weekly

April 20, 2007

An all time classic
Chicago Reader

August 13, 2007

Spencer Tracy does his cuddly curmudgeon turn as Clarence Darrow; it's a lazy, vague performance, but its wit provides the only crack of light in the film's somber, gray overcast.

March 18, 2008

Director Stanley Kramer can't overcome the trepidations of a verbose courtroom drama, so he lets his two actors, Spencer Tracy and Fredric March dominate and go at each other, pretending it's a deep play of ideas.
F5 (Wichita, KS)

March 10, 2004

Director Kramer at his most unbearably high-minded and ostentatious
Common Sense Media

January 01, 2011

Knock-out courtroom drama has deft comic touches.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

April 01, 2007

Tracy and March turn in superlative performances, each trying to upstage the other.

February 24, 2008

Stagey yes, but powerful Tracy and March acting + subject matter make this a must see.
