Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hellman speaks her mind brilliantly but opens her heart rarely. When the moment requires feeling, she too often offers irony; when the theme invites tragedy, she resorts to melodrama."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"Page was brilliant and Hiller, in a less showy role, was excellent."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide

"Dean Martin is miscast in this adaptation of Lillian Hellman's melodramatic play about a con man and the women in his life."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Screendaily
"Somebody out there in Hollywood has made even more of a wreck of Lillian Hellman's Toys in the Attic than was made of it on the stage. I would say the responsible party is the director, George Roy Hill."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
