It's so funny you'll scream.

With a name cast as long as your arm, including plenty of comedy talent, plus a continuity and direction that propel the action at a springy gait, there is something doing all the time, and mixed in with the farce are a couple of romances.

This comedy is uproariously funny but rough, bordering at times on the risque; it is good entertainment for adults who are not squeamish.

Believe you me, Menjou gives a knockout performance.

It is really a travelling salesman's anecdote extended to feature length; which is not to say that it isn't quite often exceedingly funny.

[Convention City] is a very funny film. It is also a very naughty film. We can imagine the censor lads sitting through it with shades over their eyes. The dialogue is bright. The acting is excellent.

Probably the fastest complex comedy of the year and a certain money picture, Warners could not have given the author of this original, Pete Milne, hotter support in a name cast.

Guy Kibbee, Adolph Menjou, Joan Blondell, and a mob of swell small-part actors keep the convention rolling on its belly, on its behind, on its ear. It's a perfect piece of native satire and a riot of entertainment.

Consistently bawdy, frequently accurate, it represents the new film era of farce license. It has some hilarious moments and some surprisingly outspoken ones; its basic attitude is one of flippant and rowdy veracity.
