      Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) A degree of sweetness and innocence is maintained despite some remarkably lewd jokes. Jan 11, 2019 Full Review Variety Staff Variety The production holds enchantment and delight in substantial quantity. Feb 3, 2009 Full Review Don Druker Chicago Reader As Andrew Sarris says, not without its cruelties, but not without its beauties as well. Aug 15, 2007 Full Review Jennifer O’Callaghan PopMatters Love in the Afternoon deserves credit for its artistic merit but also for serving as the beginning of a beautiful affair between Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond. Sep 12, 2022 Full Review George N. Fenin Film Culture Some critics have found a streak of the famous Lubitsch touch in this film. We most heartily disagree! Mar 30, 2022 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Love in the Afternoon relies on buying into Cooper and Hepburn ending up together and that's why this film fails.

      Edoarda P It is a marvellous movie; sentimental but funny at the same time. There is no vulgarity whatsoever. Sweet story of love between a young girl and a middle-aged successful businessman. But the age difference does not spoil the fun of the love story, which is beautiful. Edoarda Paolini Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review X O Wow. What a film. Gary Cooper is really not a great actor, but Audrey Hepburn ... wow. What class. And the ending is truly amazing. Truly. Wow. I have to see more of Bulky Wilder's work. It's a shame there is so little class left in wooing someone, man or woman. Classy stuff. Really nice work. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Clever plot and has some witty moments. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review farah r Not one of Audrey Hepburn's best films, Love in the Afternoon offers a few moments of pleasure but not an overall pleasant experience. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 10% rating. Did not find this film interesting. I was rather bored during this film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Very dated humor in its portrayal of a young girl falling for an older, rich man. The gags are hammy, and Gary Cooper looked old and ill and totally miscast. Also overly long. Only worth watching for Audrey Hepburn's usual magic onscreen.
