Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sunny view of artistic self-awareness slicing past gaiety"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"There wasn't much to chew on or laugh about in this stilted comedy."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Bright comedy, but nothing great"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Comedy full of Minnelli's creative visual style."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Slick but dated sophisticated, romantic comedy"

"Narrado por quatro de seus personagens, o filme é divertido, conta com ótimas atuações de todos (Peck, em especial) e tem uma seqüência de luta hilária no final."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
