Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This early Woody Allen comedy, basically an aggregate of sketches and gags, lacks the polish and coherence of his later work, but it contains many funny moments and some hilarious and audacious ones."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Really dated, but clever concept."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Its ability to jump around vignette-style allows Allen to generously spread his hilarious schtick to a broad number of subjects without fear of dilution. One of Allen's unsung classics."
‑ Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com
"Too uneven to be good. Too good to ignore"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Sex is comedy"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"This should be a hit-and-miss effort, but it's mostly hits."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Sperm can be fun!"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"One of Woody's slightest efforts, to be sure, but it still delivers a healthy batch of laughs."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"The movie a man named 'Woody' was born to direct!"
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Funny the first time. Multiple viewings offer nothing."
‑ John Esther, Pasadena Weekly
"John Carradine as the mad scientist! Gene Wilder and the ewe! Tasteless, but funny; the sperm sequence is priceless."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
