Had the script writers and the director, George Cukor, entered into the spirit of the thing with as much enthusiasm, lack of self-consciousness and abandon as the star, the result would have been a smash hit.
Garbo's last film, graced by some charming scenes and directed with Cukor's usual flair, but hardly sending her off in a blaze of glory.
I still wouldn't hold it up as a sterling example of American wit, but it has its moments, and Garbo does a hell of a rhumba.
This is a clumsy, lazy film, which reminded me all too painfully of some of our modern-day clumsy, lazy romantic comedies.
Just an average romance comedy that hasn't changed the face of the genre, but isn't the waste of time the reviews deemed it as at the time...
The final film is today still a watchable comedy, but it turns Garbo into something she's not.
This light comedy with Garbo playing twins was considered dismal and blamed for Garbo's retirement; however, there are some minor pleasures.
It's a standard plot and, despite the combined talents of cast and director, this is no more than a standard comedy.
