Critic Reviews for One Hour With You

Pure movie gold of the most sophisticated kind.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

A dapper case for matrimonial elasticity, argued in sleighs and insinuations

Full Review… | March 14, 2010

Co-directed by Lubitsch and George Cukor, ultimately this Oscar-nominated film bears the signature of the former, or what is known as the Lubitsch touch.

Full Review… | March 3, 2008

It amiably follows along the tracks of the usual Lubitsch frothy boudoir operetta.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Enjoyable at the beginning and at the end, but the middle portion had my mind wandering.

Audience Reviews for One Hour With You


Sparkling Lubitsch musical comedy ('assisted by George Cukor') with Chevalier and MacDonald in fine form.

Chevalier films are corny and often don't have a level of sophistication to them but they somehow end up terribly charming. This is another golden oldie that gives you a good chuckle.

I think the main problem for me is I'm not warming up to Maurice Chevalier; he's so stereotypically "French" that he's one stripe in his hair away from Pepi Le Pew. Just kind of annoying. Jeanette MacDonald is very lovely, but doesn't get nearly as much to do unfortunately.
