Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Had the script writers and the director, George Cukor, entered into the spirit of the thing with as much enthusiasm, lack of self-consciousness and abandon as the star, the result would have been a smash hit."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"This is a clumsy, lazy film, which reminded me all too painfully of some of our modern-day clumsy, lazy romantic comedies."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"This light comedy with Garbo playing twins was considered dismal and blamed for Garbo's retirement; however, there are some minor pleasures."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Garbo's last film, graced by some charming scenes and directed with Cukor's usual flair, but hardly sending her off in a blaze of glory."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Just an average romance comedy that hasn't changed the face of the genre, but isn't the waste of time the reviews deemed it as at the time..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's a standard plot and, despite the combined talents of cast and director, this is no more than a standard comedy."
‑ , Film4
"I still wouldn't hold it up as a sterling example of American wit, but it has its moments, and Garbo does a hell of a rhumba."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"The final film is today still a watchable comedy, but it turns Garbo into something she's not."
