Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As usual, it's more clever than meaningful, but this 1948 film is one of his most satisfactory in wit and pace."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"A stinging satirical look at black marketeering in post WW II Berlin."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This may not be Wilder at his best -- the story develops along fairly predictable lines, with Arthur switching her starchy uniform for a glistening evening gown -- but there are some precious set pieces."
‑ , Time Out
"Despite its predictable story line makes for a somewhat enjoyable satire."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A dandy entertainment which has some shrewd and realistic things to say."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Lesser Billy Wilder with great actresses and a weak leading man."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
