  • Some 97 minutes of well-farced escapism is offered in Susan Slept Here.

  • On the whole, "Susan Slept Here" remains as familiar as a summer breeze, but not nearly as refreshing.

  • This started life as a Broadway comedy and remains very theatrical, despite Tashlin's efforts to goose it into life ...

  • Some of the gags about 50s Hollywood are priceless (among them a parody of Gene Kelly's dream ballets).

  • Hollywood pictures, I still doggedly maintain, are slowly improving on the average, but I couldn't clinch the argument by citing the present specimen. It's a coy, leering and overdrawn comedy.

    December 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a surprisingly bad outing considering all the talent involved.

Audience Reviews for Susan Slept Here

  • Apr 04, 2007
    Cotton candy confection with Debbie bright and chipper. Something from a much more innocent time with for that time a slightly risque story, although the fact that Debbie was actually 22 and looks it not the 17 the script indicates removing much of the ick factor. Skillfully played by all with Glenda Farrell very amusing in support and Anne Francis a knockout in an eyepoppingly elegant wardrobe.
