Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Preston Sturges plays his script [based on a story by Earl Felton] with frantic slapstick, stressing raw, bawdy comedy rather than genuine humor, to get the laughs."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Not so much a lament for the end of the West but for the end of the 1940s"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"This musical western burlesque looks slightly better today, but its still more energetic than funny."
‑ , Film4
"To paraphrase the theme song, it looks pretty well shot in the end."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Shoots itself in the arse once too many times for its prolonged spoof to work smoothly."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Fast-moving and witty spoof of Western conventions from one of Hollywood's finest writer/directors of comedy."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Even a fair-to-middling Preston Sturges production is better than most comedies by other writer/directors."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
