      Variety Staff Variety This amusing comedy affair whiles away a pleasant 98 minutes of screen time. Sassy dialogue and situations predominate and make for sly fun. Sep 13, 2022 Full Review P.S. Harrison Harrison's Reports Consistently amusing entertainment is provided in this somewhat "whacky" comedy of errors. Sep 13, 2022 Full Review Janet Graves Photoplay Tom Ewell’s irresistible clowning and Sheree North’s amiable charms lend a bit of bounce to a comedy that isn’t quite as deft as its stars. Rated: 3/4 Sep 13, 2022 Full Review Jean-Luc Godard Cahiers du Cinéma [Director Frank Tashlin] is an original, a diamond cut diamond who indulges the luxury of overtaking that sucker [Billy] Wilder just as Fangio overtakes Porfirio Rubirosa. Apr 6, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The plot is a formula job but much of the movie is amusing stuff in spite of that. Nov 13, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
