This third version of the 1928 smash play is only mildly entertaining; Billy Wilder has no new take on the text and his stars may be too old.

Full of wonderful comedic business, throw-away lines and some effortless ensemble set pieces, The Front Page bristles with its collection of talents on both sides of the camera.... It's that Billy Wilder touch of hurtful grains of truth inside every com

This slick remake of the ebullient original falls short of being the film it could have been, despite the presence of master filmmaker Wilder and his engaging costars.

It relies too much on foul language, inappropriate slapstick, and superficial cynicism.

Matthau and Lemmon put in their usual faultless turns, but cannot lift a pervading air of pointlessness.

It bombed then. It looks better now, but it's still a distant third in films of the play

Not the finest adaptation of the oft-visited source material, but hey, it's Wilder, Lemmon, and Matthau!

Even though the mechanics and demands of movie-making slow what should be the furious tempo, this Front Page displays a giddy bitterness that is rare in any films except those of Mr. Wilder. It is also, much of the time, extremely funny.
