Critic Reviews for Paperback Romance

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Despite its wildly improbable plot, its general tone is one of a becalmed hush, full of wondering discovery, highly suitable for romance.

Most screwball comedies play off a mistaken identity. Paperback Romance may be the first to use a mistaken disability.
