Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At 40, [Day] should maybe stop trying to play Goldilocks."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"It is a beautiful farce situation, and Julius Epstein has written it, from a play by Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore, with nimble inventiveness and style."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times

‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews

‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"Probably the best of the Doris Day/Rock Hudson vehicles."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Hudson-Day sex farce (that is, in 1964) is fun relic today."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Pretty good romantic comedy that's a bit too cute."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
