Richard Dreyfuss is an irresistible young Jewish man in 1948 Montreal. He's driven by an insatiable desire to be a "somebody" and he somehow works his way into our hearts even as he cheats and schemes and connives to buy a large parcel of land. He uses the girl who loves him, he forges checks, he lies... and he is enormously proud of himself because of it. Those around him are tremendously disgusted. We are torn. There's a little bit of Duddy Kravitz in everyone.

'A movie that somehow manages to be breakneck and curiously touching at the same time. It's a story of ambition and greed, with a hero that will stop at almost nothing. And yet we like Duddy, with a kind of exasperation, because we get some notion of the hungers that drive him, and because nobody suffers at his hands more than he does himself.
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
''The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz' is the funny, fantastic and often moving story of Duddy's adventures as he desperately tries to establish himself as a comer. An alternately sad and hilarious movie of dreams rampant.'
—Vincent Canby , The New York Times
