Slant Magazine

More intriguing for behind-the-scenes gossip than its rather familiar screwball comedy machinations.

Reno Gazette-Journal

The actors are game but the hijinks are too stilted and tame by today's standards.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Classic screwball farce. Not as funny as it might be, but worthwhile.

| Original Score: 4/5

Creative Loafing

Earns its keep simply for the moment when Loy, expecting Powell to describe her eyes in gushing terms, is instead startled when he remarks that they look like "angry marbles."

A charming cast, headed by Tracy, Harlow, William Powell and Myrna Loy, elevates this screwball comedy, a typically glossy MGM fare of the Depression era.
