Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...one of those films that have been so assimilated into the collective unconscious that they feel ubiquitous,to the point that even those who have never seen it probably feel as though they have.

Huston understands the majestic savagery of his surroundings well enough to let it exert some dramatic pressure on what is primarily a buoyant romantic comedy.

Almost painfully entertaining. The textbook definition of "American Movie Classic."

Matt's Movie Reviews

The performances by Humphrey Bogart (who earned his lone Oscar for his troubles) and Katharine Hepburn, along with John Huston's astute direction has produced a high spirited and highly entertaining adventure movie.

One of the very best, both for Bogart and Hepburn.

As a paradigm of why certain actors and filmmakers remain revered several decades after their death or greatest success, The African Queen is more than merely exemplary.

Bogie and Hepburn, a dynamic duo! A love story, adventure story and comedy, all rolled into one rollicking and perilous river ride. You never get tired watching it.

There are not two better actors to tackle these roles, and director Huston keeps their story moving without lulls.

A much ballyhooed film that has been overrated as a classic.

A more unorthodox adventure story and a more unconventional romantic comedy you couldn't imagine.

These are not "pretty" characters, but they are beautiful and their affair is a natural force outside of society and the church.
