Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ernst Lubitsch's last completed film, from 1946, looks back to the prewar year of 1938 to take stock of the postwar world and to show how it got that way."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Whammo entertainment."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Sprightly enough, but scores nothing like the wit and verve of Ninotchka or To Be Or Not To Be."
‑ , Total Film
"An outdated, slight, and genial satire on British manners."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Lubitsch's last film and one of his most engaging comedies."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"This late, delicious comedy of manners by Ernst Lubitsch is a notch below his best, but the character acting is so good one hardly notices."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"This somewhat outmoded satirical soufflé on British upper-class mores is nonetheless diverting."
‑ Robin Karney, Radio Times
"What is the famed "Lubitsch touch" if not the quiet thrill of being in on the joke?"
‑ Matthew Connolly, Slant Magazine
"Let is be noted at the outset that Ernst Lubitsch has come up with a delectable and sprightly lampoon in Cluny Brown."
‑ A.H. Weiler, New York Times
"Sadly, the comedy his last proper film (That Lady in Ermine was completed by Preminger), hardly bites, but it certainly barks."
‑ , Film4
"The last film with the fabled "Lubitsch touch" contains moments of satire that raise it to classic status, as Lubitsch, Hoffenstein and Reinhardt take shots at upper-class England with deadly aim."
