Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The script's few good ideas are soon flogged to death, although it all becomes interestingly tasteless towards the end."
‑ , Time Out
"Writer Carl Reiner and director Norman Jewison go aground by allowing too many bits to fill their pot."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety

‑ Eugene Archer, New York Times

‑ , TIME Magazine
"Good cast handles the material well but the film is so bloated with lunacy that it is hard to keep up with."
