Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie builds up a lot of good will early on, which is needed when the time comes to resolve its farcical complications."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"[A] belabored charade of mistaken identities..."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Quintessential 1980s comedy"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Obviously, no new ground is being broken here, but director Ross keeps things humming in an endearingly old-fashioned way."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"The 1980s were not a particularly inspired era, so it's appropriate that a middling romantic comedy like this one would earn the title of quintessential movie of the decade."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Does the fun ever start?"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Does the movie really believe anyone is as stupid as these characters? Does it care?"
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"enjoyable fluff"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Surprisingly sharp comedy."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
