The overall result is one of the most violently funny comedies, one of the most original, vigorous and cheerfully outrageous moving pictures that ever came out of Hollywood.
December 15, 2010
Hilarious WWII comedy flirts with taboos.

September 1, 2009
Six decades before Diablo Cody and Juno, Preston Sturges carried unplanned comedy to term.
November 13, 2007
Done in the satirical Sturges vein, and directed with that same touch, the story makes much of characterization and somewhat wacky comedy, plus some slapstick, with excellent photography figuring throughout.
November 13, 2007
Caustic and chaotic in the arch Sturges manner, it's probably his funniest and most smilingly malicious film.
November 19, 2006
One of Sturges' master works, this comedy turns upside down Hollywood's conventions of small-town life with original vision and crackling dialogue.

June 24, 2006
Great verbal gags and non-sequiturs, fast-paced action, and a thorough irreverence for all things deemed respectable -- politicians, policemen and magistrates included -- make it a lasting delight.
December 17, 2005
One of Preston Sturges' zanier films, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek begs the question: how did he get away with this?

September 5, 2005
Stands out for its sheer audacity of subject matter and its sustained emotional-roller-coaster effect: it's quite possibly the most high-strung movie ever made.

Sturges lets it all hang out, never passes over a joke and somehow manages to sustain the pace and quality.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Sturges as author and director, is thoroughly up to his stinging style in this film.

March 10, 2003
This is the master of subversion's most subversive work.
August 22, 2002
Depends a little too much on the viewer's tolerance for Eddie Bracken and Betty Hutton trying to out-mug and out-frenzy each other to be everyone's cup of tea.
