      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine One of the least memorable of Bernard Shaw's plays has been turned into a handsome but oddly sluggish film under the direction of Anthony Asquith... Dec 2, 2019 Full Review Dwight MacDonald Esquire Magazine The Millionairess is a bit of comic pastry that comes out too rich and soggy. It needed style and a light touch. Jul 12, 2019 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) The stars help, but this should be so much better than it is. Rated: 3/5 Aug 29, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jun 11, 2005 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 23, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Tom M This is a tough movie to rate. Quite frankly, Sophia Loren is very funny through the entire movie and Peter Sellers is really dull. The story is more complex (and maybe a little longer) than it needs to be. But Sophia is as stunning as always. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/26/20 Full Review Audience Member Not so good. Script? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member the world's richest woman finds there is a catch to go with her inheritance Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Loren and Sellers try hard but can't make a mountain out of a mole hill. Loren looks lovely, though. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Should have been so much better! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Ok.. Not so gr8..
