Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"lighthearted, nostalgic comedy"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"The rare and wonderful thing about this film...is that it so vividly recreates the sensibilities prevelant during the era it recalls, the mid-1950s."

‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The sets, the cars, the costumes, everything about the production is authentically nostalgic."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
