Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Just a little too ungainly, too jumbled at the end, for me to recommend, but it has heart, and I feel a lot of affection for it."

‑ Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune
"The Scoundrel's Wife looks great and Pitre fills the film with solid performances all around."
‑ Merle Bertrand, Film Threat
