Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A delight."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Preston Sturges's imaginative script is one of his best, adroitly mixing his customary satire of capitalism and the class system with some dazzling dialogue and hilarious slapstick."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Preston Sturges wrote this Depression-era (1937) twist on the Cinderella story, and it acquires an airy grace from the direction of Mitchell Leisen."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Terrific screwball comedy."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Chic enchantment"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Sparkling bit of comedy that works on almost every level."
