Bob Thomas Associated Press A wonderful combination of whimsy and sentiment. Jul 29, 2019 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine ... a refreshing and different comedy. Oct 9, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Charming light comedy about a kindly old codger who is a small-time counterfeiter passing one dollar bills. Rated: B+ Nov 24, 2013 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Apesar da adorável presença de Edmund Gwenn, o filme se rende ao sentimentalismo barato na péssima seqüência que se passa em um tribunal, arruinando a experiência. Rated: 3/5 Jan 20, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member A gentle comedy with an exceptional underlying story that deals with the rule of law vs the spirit of the law. Edmund Gwenn is a joy to watch in this tale based on a true story. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
