"A touch of schmaltz worked box-office wonders for the Marx Brothers in A Night at the Opera, so Hal Roach pitched a tubful at this 1938 Laurel and Hardy vehicle. It's one of their worst films."

"One of Laurel and Hardy's less effective outings."

"So the plot has more holes than Emmenthal cheese, but who cares? More troubling are the romantic interludes and outbreaks of syrupy operetta that retard the comedy -- but they're worth sitting through for two of the pair's most sublime routines."

"The film still contains a couple of classic sequences, most notably Stan's attempt to trick a St Bernard dog into letting him at its brandy keg and Ollie singing Let Me Call You Sweetheart to Stan's sousaphone accompaniment."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
