The Importance of Being Earnest Reviews

Philip Horne
Daily Telegraph

The perfect cast - Michael Redgrave, Michael Denison, Margaret Rutherford - and the perfect director (Anthony Asquith) know just how seriously (not very) to take this amoral satire on society's falsity.

Nick's Flick Picks

For an audience that takes pleasure in the all-too-rare art of faithful adaptations that vivify rather than embalming their sources [...] Asquith's conservative handling is just what the confirmed and secret Bunburyist ordered.

Civilized comedy has never been more civilized -- or as preposterously funny.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A very competent and enjoyable rendition of Oscar Wilde's most witty play from 1895.

Q Network Film Desk

Asquith, an expert in comedy ..., knows just how to let Wilde's drawing-room farce play out to maximum effectiveness with a minimum of intrusion

| Original Score: 3.5/4
