Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer Colin Higgins makes a good directorial bow."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Director Colin Higgins plays foul with the audience, constructing some of the most dishonest suspense sequences ever filmed."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"The film clumsily and sluggishly mixes humor and suspense and fails at both."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Charming and goofy Hitchcock homage with great performances by Hawn and Chase."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Truly enjoyable thrill comedy in the Hitchcock mode."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Unsatisfactory as a whole, the film is hilarious and tense in bits."
‑ , Time Out
"The comedy/thriller plods on for too long with tasteless and witless physical comedy, though it has a few funny moments."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Ocasionalmente divertido, traz Chase tentando se afirmar como galã de ação e Hawn encantadora como em quase todos os seus filmes da época. Porém, é um filme descartável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Look out for the elf!"
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"This is a finely tuned and fast-paced offering which is chock-full of black comic twists and perfect casting."
‑ , Film4
"Mr. Higgins's penchant for mixing visual elegance with coarse gags is equally ill-advised, especially because it makes him work the gags so hard."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A funny, successful, and very derivative crime-comedy."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Chevy when he was funny, Goldie when she was starting her heyday, and Dudley too. What a deal."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"brainless and silly... not that that's a bad thing"
‑ Christopher Null,
