Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Conceivably the best picture Sam Goldwyn ever produced."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Brando wasn't producer Sam Goldwyn's first choice as Sky (that was Gene Kelly) but he acquits himself outstandingly."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"Classic Sinatra/Brando musical is a whole lot of fun."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A wonderful, lavish adaptation of the hit musical that boasts a score of classic production numbers"
‑ , Film4
"Snappy musical about ne'er-do-well gamblers in Gotham is still an unbeatable hand."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Guys and Dolls is a bangup filmusical in the topdrawer Goldwyn manner."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"A great play but just a good movie."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Too talky."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It is chained to its stage musical origins and at times seems limited by its studio-bound sets and camera angles. Nevertheless, it is a joyful tale, about New York street gamblers who have a run-in with the Salvation Army, and the songs are terrific. Bran"
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"Miscast version of an overpraised show"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A musical fairly glittering with intelligence and invention."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Though assigned to the wrong director (Mankiewicz), the musical movie still maintains some charm, largely due to the performances of Sinatra and Brando"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"No one's cool enough to blow off a movie starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra. Not you, not me...nobody."
‑ Will Harris, Bullz-Eye.com
"Ya gotta love seeing the first glimpse of Don Corleone here. A fun screen adaptation if not musically sound."
‑ Michael Drakulich, Star Newspapers (Chicago, IL)
"Still one of the most thrilling and thoroughly entertaining of all musicals."
‑ Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine
