Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's really not a good movie, but it had something special about it that defied a rational critique."

"Fields and West, two comic forces collide and both come out on town. A timeless treasure of comedy."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

"Two greats blow it. Both have done far better."
