"Comédia romântica que se torna fascinante graças à sua galeria de personagens insanos, ao desempenho dos protagonistas e à curiosa mensagem sobre a busca da felicidade através do não-conformismo às convenções da sociedade."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Madness may, indeed, make giants of us all."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"For dark-edged whimsy and charm, few films are better."

‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, Apollo Guide
