Warm Flaubertian satire
July 23, 2003
Probably shouldn't be your first stop into the wonderfully weird world of Fellini, but his fans should absolutely find something to savour in this enjoyable little farce.

Such as in La Strada and Nights of Cabiria, in The White Sheik Fellini acknowledges his neo-realist foundation, and displays a capacity for fantasy.

Federico Fellini's first film, a charming caper that follows a pair of tormented honeymooners through their slapstick adventures in Rome, has put to rest my ungrounded fear of Fellini.

April 28, 2003
a delightful comedy that demonstrates Fellini's talent of directing exaggerated actors in madcap scenarios

July 31, 2007
A funny, sardonic, and clever satire on popular heroes and ordinary people's illusions.
February 5, 2012
Fellini's solo directing debut, a charming fable about a newlywed couple, shows themes and characters that will reappear in his future work, not to mention the significance of wife actress Masina.

January 13, 2004
Fellini would make much better films but this isn't a bad debut.
August 29, 2006
Not one of Fellini's masterworks (and uncharacteristically farcical), but it is a must-see for those interested in the director's oeuvre and an entertaining piece on its own.
