Critic Reviews for Theodora Goes Wild

All Critics (2)

Theodora goes silly rather than wild in this outdated look at how they made comedies back then.

Great screwball comedy about the transformation of a plain and repressed girl (splendidly played by Irene Dunne) into an eccentric and loving woman.

Audience Reviews for Theodora Goes Wild

A cute film about the impact of the writing of racy novel on a small town and the town's reaction to the surprising author. Little more than cute though.
