Bluebeard's Eighth Wife Reviews

April 1, 2020
An enduring jewel in the history of film comedies. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 9, 2019
Only Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert could have given it its peculiar sparkle, romance and deftly timed comedy.
April 1, 2012
The text (also done as silent), co-scripted by Billy Wilder, seems ideal for the Lubitsch touch, and yet the tone is incongruous and overall the film is disappointing.
November 15, 2009
Lubitsch's classicism gets continually cracked by the unruliness of the screwball genre and by the caustic thrust of the Billy Wilder-Charles Brackett screenplay
August 14, 2007
Wilders and Brackett's screenplay has some laughs, and Lubitsch knows how to get the most out of the least, but this movie was a mistake to make in the first place.

A sporadically funny, somewhat contrived comedy.
March 25, 2006
Although it's not a bad comedy by our current depressed standards, it has the dickens of a time trying to pass off Gary Cooper as a multi-marrying millionaire.

Fluffy, but fun and worth watching for the great Horton as Colbert's financially embarrassed father.
January 1, 2000
Ernst Lubitsch seems to be resting on his cliches in this atypically inelegant 1938 comedy.
