For me, the movie didn't hold up as well as I originally remembered, however it is still a film worth watching in my opinion.

Perhaps the most evocative scene which says themost about our culture is the wedding reception for Brenda's lunkhead brother in which friends and relatives descend upon the banquet table like a plague of locusts devouring everything in sight.

Perfect for when you want an entertaining relaxing film to watch.

I really enjoyed this Comedy/Romance movie, it was surprisingly realistic and thoroughly enjoyable.

Great enjoyable humorous movie .

Neil, meanwhile, is pretentious, aloof and unconsciously a bit of a social-climber.

Very enjoyable and memorable .

"Goodbye, Columbus" is a very enjoyable movie that shows movie making transition from large films that are somewhat formulaic in their approach to telling a story, to a small, quasi-independent film that started tackling issues like the sexual revolution.

What really made me rate this highly (a 9/10) is how well it sticks in my memory and how enjoyable it is to think of afterwards as well as watch.
