Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Yes Nurse, No Nurse is fun -- if you get into its groove."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"Styles range from cabaret to barbershop to toe-tapping bubblegum, and the rainy-day serenade at the start nods Cherbourgward, with a soupçon of Low Countries sass."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"Sweet and innocent to a fault, the wild tangents the movie takes us on ultimately feel strange for the sake of being strange"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"The characters are all directed to play their goofy expressions for the back row, which might have befitted the boards but is offputting in the close-ups of camera. Moreover, the story is slight."
‑ Kim Williamson, Boxoffice Magazine
"A campy, brightly colored musical comedy based on a popular '60s Dutch sitcom that's unlike any other film out there."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"At once corny and precious, its humor seems too heavily ethnic to travel well."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Harmless, colorful fluff with community-theater production values."
‑ , E! Online
"Neither witty nor inventive enough to hold your interest for its belabored 100-minute running time."
‑ Timothy Knight, Reel.com
"This nonsensical Dutch movie musical rides on the dubious assumption that camp and infantilism are the same thing."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"This cranky non-Dutchman came to wish the director had cut a couple of tunes: A little of this goes a long way."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Director Pieter Kramer successfully reproduces the bright colors and cheerful ambiance of musical comedies of the 1950s and '60s."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Perhaps it's all in the translation, but Yes Nurse! No Nurse! makes only a so-so musical...[enhanced by] campy, candy-colored design..."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
