This may be the sexiest Colbert ever...
USA Today
Feb 4, 2005
Rating: 3.5/4 -- It's about as breezy, carefree, and anarchic as romantic comedies get. Full of absurd comedic digressions and bookends that still don't quite make sense, this eccentric road trip comedy would likely never get made in today's Hollywood climate. Full Review

Rudy Vallee turns in his best performance as a gentle, puny millionaire named Hackensacker in this brilliant, simultaneously tender and scalding 1942 screwball comedy by Preston Sturges. Full Review

This Prestton Sturges production is packed with delightful absurdities. Full Review
Variety
Nov 13, 2007
Rating: 4/4 -- This might not be the funniest film of Sturges' brilliant '40s heyday ("The Miracle of Morgan's Creek"), or the most subversively romantic ("The Lady Eve"), or the best made ("Sullivan's Travels"), but it's definitely a censor-baiting treat. Full Review
New York Post
Apr 11, 2015
Rating: 4.5/5 -- Even as Colbert and McCrea trade fast-paced dialogue and fall into each others' arms, they sell their characters' marriage as one whose fire desperately needs tending. Full Review

Sturges' dialogue pops like firecrackers...
