Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We're still appreciative, but we found too many chestnuts in the dressing."
‑ Frank S. Nugent, New York Times

‑ Steve Crum,
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"This 1939 release is still watchable, though the spirit is now sitcom."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite couple continue to lightly spar and make those cross-cultural jabs, but the end result is decidedly tepid."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Lots of familiar faces are brought in to liven things up. But it's all rather diluted, as though the ice has melted in the dry martini."

"The atmosphere and sets, along with stellar performances by the principals, can't offset a weak story."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The solution seems more convoluted than necessary, and as usual the murderer breaks down and confesses in the end. Still, it's good to see Powell and Loy in action."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Third entry in the series is nearly up to the second."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
