Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Gay Divorcee offers a terrific mix of wit, humor, and, of course, song-and-dance."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, Film and Felt
"As far as musical comedies go, this one wasn't musical enough."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"The second, charming teaming of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, probably his best dancing partner"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Just fast forward to the dance numbers and you'll be in heaven."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Aimed at cheering up a Depression audience--which it does do with animated song and dance numbers."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Not the best Fred and Ginger film, but not far from it. The 17 minute "Continental" is a stunner."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
