"Surprising for something so mean-spirited to have come so early in the Dream Factory's saga of self-loathing, and even more surprising because it seems so heartfelt."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"A wonderful reminder of how great both Tracy and Harlow really were"

"It's all funny and on-target, but most of the satire is -- as you might expect -- not too unkind."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Dated, but Harlow is in her prime."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
