      Meyer Levin (Patterson Murphy) Esquire Magazine The surprise performance is by Melvyn Douglas, who turns out to be quite a funny drunk. May 4, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine Not a new idea, but Claudette Colbert's expert comedy makes it seem fresh and funny. Jul 22, 2019 Full Review Helen Brown Norden Vanity Fair The picture has a great deal of the easy, good-humored charm of It Happened One Night -- although it doesn't measure up to that classic -- and you will find it highly entertaining.

Croce CinePassion Business and marriage together 'sound like an incorporation,' with a deft hand Gregory La Cava dismantles both Jan 8, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D With this cast it has no right to be so bad. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Audience Member just dreadful. how could such a great cast, premise and production go so wrong? probably because preston sturges wasn't available. the best part of the movie is the drunk butler, but who then drives around nyc in a blackout. i guess we're supposed to find that hilarious, but not so much today. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Claudette Colbert makes this film watchable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Cute with some very dated attitudes and a too abrupt ending. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Claudette Colbert was Perfect, only the ending was kinda anticlimax :I Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Snappy dialogue makes this cute (though sexist) comedy a pleasure to watch.
