Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The silly bon-bon of romantic travails and mistaken identities by Marc Allegret is an often overbearingly chauvinistic sex comedy that survives solely on Bebe's charms..."

"Its bastard grandchild may be the soft-core film, but this is exploitation of another era and it has an aesthetic. Silly -- ridiculous even -- but not bad."

"typical of the sexy French comedies of the 1950s, silly and slightly erotic, but never pushing any significant boundaries"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
