Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sátira anti-belicista que envelheceu mal e cuja relevância diz respeito apenas à performance de Sellers como a grã-duquesa de Fenwick."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Even hilarious today; politics haven't changed!"

‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Sellers distinguished himself only in his role in drag."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A welcome return to a more innocent time in geopolitics. Also be sure to catch the mod! fab! DVD preview for Dr. Strangelove."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"Sellers is great. The movie is so-so"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Quirky little cult movie"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"A witty British satire about war, diplomacy and foreign policy."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
