Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"No director ever matched Preston Sturges's way of blending low slapstick and literate dialogue comedy."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"one of Preston Sturges' best films, and perhaps his most undersung."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Not vintage Preston Sturges, but the finale is a scream."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"It is too bad that Preston Sturges is not compelled by law to turn out at least one movie -- maybe two -- a year. For nobody makes films as he does."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"It's a brilliantly accomplished work offering a mixture of bitter comedy and outright despair."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The last of Sturges's Hollywood films, and one of his finest."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Not much liked at the time, but a small masterpiece just the same in its skilful blending of moods, genuinely moving and quite beautifully played by Harrison and Darnell."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"It's as close as you're likely to get to a perfect movie."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Unfaithfully Yours (1948) is a wonderful, brilliant and stylish comedy by Preston Sturges - it was the last of his Hollywood films."
‑ Tim Dirks, Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films
