George Orwell Time and Tide In spite of adequate acting and a good central idea, the sentiment of this film is so palpably false as to make its dénouement almost unbearable. Oct 2, 2023 Full Review Eileen Jones The Jacobin The screwball comedy The Devil and Miss Jones exemplifies how pro-worker Hollywood was just on the eve of McCarthyism. Dec 19, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins It has grand humor, enjoyable characters, and plenty of heart - which helps to overlook the rather swift, clean outcome - as it builds to a warm, hopeful conclusion. Rated: 10/10 Aug 5, 2020 Full Review Aurelio Pego Cine-Mundial I liked it because it constitutes a social satire of the best quality, and because the dialogue is written with sharp ability. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Delightful comedy about low paid employees trying to organize a labor union. Dec 30, 2014 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Rated: 4/5 Jul 15, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

Josh G A comedy of errors, filled with subpar writing and query characters. It is the equivalent of a romcom in the 90's with Hugh grant but it is much silly and doesn't have six pence none the richer on the soundtrack. It is a undercover boss, meets the marx brothers, meets any late judy garland film. It's a passable forgettable film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/22/22 Full Review Audience Member A pretty good film, aged well. I liked the story, the humour still works today. Certainly watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review s r A happy romantic comedy / undercover boss film showing the struggles of the working class through a feel good medium. It was on daily motion. It was a good cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review steve d A blast of a film that has held of beautifully Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A favorite of Blobbo from when so small not yet born. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The best comedy movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
