With the egalitarian warmth of Jean Renoir (himself a huge fan of the film), director McCarey spoofs stereotypes while investing them with knowing asides.

Fitting such a democratic film, there's no bad part here...

Slant Magazine

Leo McCarey's masterpiece is a schizo, slack-jawed, preemptive rejoinder to Frank Capra's saintly sober "everyman."

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The film's main asset is the strong comical performance of Charles Laughton as the straitlaced and very proper English butler Marmaduke Ruggles.

Charles Laughton gives a splendid performance as a servant who quickly adopts the American Way of Life in Leo McCarey's savvy political comedy of 1935, a banner year for the Brit thespian in which he was also nominated for Mutiny on the Bounty.

What I can't understand is why this film ... isn't beloved as one of the all-time great comedies.
