Nathanael Hood Nate Hood Reviews A raucously entertaining spitfire of a movie that barely clocks over 70 minutes, the film emulates the bourgeois gentility of classic screwball comedies while channeling the anarchic silliness of 1940s Hollywood comedies. Rated: 7/10 Jul 6, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Inane but enjoyable wartime screwball comedy about newlyweds whose honeymoon is ruined and saved by the groom's lovable scoundrel con artist father. Rated: B- Sep 11, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D some good actors not much else. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Tom M From sly and scheming Menjou to Billie Burke's usual dipsiness (is that a word?) to June Havoc stealing most of the scenes she's in, the movie is fun from start to finish. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/20 Full Review Audience Member This is a hoot and is an early look at cons comedy style. Danny Ocean take notes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member one of Tarantino's top jokes and Pola Negri's performance are the best parts Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member madcap screwball zany sophisticated tongue-in-cheek wacky and v. funny movie - Pola Negri sings Wagner! Bille Burke sings Wagner! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun, light and very entertaining. Great supporting cast, good music and score. Nothing deep, but enjoyable.
