Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is short on plot and doesn't have enough musical numbers to recover from the pathetic comedy routines."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Vintage zany musical is Eddie Cantor showcase."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Possibly Cantor's best film. Certainly his most creatively directed and raciest."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
