"One of George Cukor's last (and least impressive) pictures, this version of Graham Greene's eccentric comedy is thematically similar to Auntie Mame but suffers from Maggie Smith's overly stylized turn and lack of rapport with Alec McCowen as her nephew."

‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Agressive whimsey eventually wears out its welcome."
