Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Chatterton character's appetite for sex is large: She cherry-picks the men in her factory and invites them to her spectacular home for business meetings that turn into seductions. When she's ready, she tosses a pillow onto a fur rug on the floor."

"This slick romantic comedy offers 'the before its time sophisticated concept' that a woman can run a large company."

‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
