      Ian Kane Epoch Times "There are also a number of other films that may not specifically be Christmas-y films per se, but evoke a similar spirit of cheer and goodwill." Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 25, 2022 Full Review Andrew Gaudion VultureHound Some fine performances can be found within this screwball, but it is largely dictated by an awkward tone and a testing languorous pace. For Capra completists only. Rated: 2/5 Sep 21, 2020 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine I'm probably in a minority about this one but I found it forced and corny, and far too long for its slender story. Dec 2, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This commercial bomb turned out to be Capra's swan song. Rated: C- May 22, 2009 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jun 28, 2005 Full Review Carol Cling Las Vegas Review-Journal Rated: 2/5 Aug 29, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      AmericasMom L Pleasantly surprised by this movie. Several lines will continue to live rent free in my head. If I'm sober, why am I seeing this? A gem! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Mark B Waste of a top cast. Remake of Lady for a Day. Scenes that should have been short were long. And vise versa. The sentiment feels forced. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Long and corny rags to riches to rags story. Bette Davis is the only reason to watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/04/21 Full Review Audience Member Too long, but so what...A great cast. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review steve d I found it really cute. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved the cast. But not the movie as much . Many good things, but .... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/05/20 Full Review Read all reviews
