a highly satirical piece, poking fun at Hollywood itself and showing how out of touch it can be

It is, quite simply, a dazzling piece of filmmaking.

Not remotely a defense of junk, but it does respect comedy as a force for escapism.

Sturges' dialog is trenchant, has drive, possesses crispness and gets the laughs where that is desired.

A dubious proposition, but in Sturges's hands a charming one, filled out by his unparalleled sense of eccentric character.

Sullivan's Travels is a gem, an almost serious comedy not taken entirely seriously, with wonderful dialogue, eccentric characterisations, and superlative performances throughout.

Forgotten for years along with its maker, writer/director Preston Sturges, Sullivan's Travels has only recently enjoyed a comeback and induction into classic status.

Its message drags it from the front guard of Sturges's work, but it shines nonetheless.

Decent Films Guide

The genius of this classic opening scene is that Sullivan's Travels is both screwball comedy and socially conscious melodrama — as well as a satire of socially conscious melodrama, and a serious apologetic for crowd-pleasing comedy.
