Rating: B+ -- A charming cast, headed by Tracy, Harlow, William Powell and Myrna Loy, elevates this screwball comedy, a typically glossy MGM fare of the Depression era. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- The tone remains upbeat despite all the dodgy dealings, making this a cheery and entertaining film throughout. Full Review
Eye for Film
Rating: 2/4 -- More intriguing for behind-the-scenes gossip than its rather familiar screwball comedy machinations. Full Review
Rating: A- -- All-star cast of MGM regulars William Powell, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy, and Jean Harlow. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Four bright stars (Myrna Loy, William Powell, Jean Harlow, Spencer Tracy) in a picture that gives them lots of chance to shine. Full Review
Rating: B- -- The actors are game but the hijinks are too stilted and tame by today's standards.
Rating: 4/5 -- Classic screwball farce. Not as funny as it might be, but worthwhile.
