Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice ★★★★

Terrific! I love (almost) any movie that feels like it should just be a stage play. I've seen this type of sex comedy done so many times where they just have the loveless couple and the freaky "funny" couple without any other personality, so it was refreshing to see them treat them like two distinct couples with stories that needed to be told! And it's earnestly funny in a way a lot of modern sex comedies aren't, because it isn't just relying on "sex is weird and being horny is cuckoo" to be its only jokes. Everyone's great, but Elliot Gould and Dylan Cannon are soooo good. Cannon's reaction faces alone carry the movie so far. Also, Natalie Wood is absolutely gorgeous? Every time I see her it feels like I'm seeing her for the first time. Good lord. Wonder if she's single...
