Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Victor/Victoria is a sparkling, ultra-sophisticated entertainment from Blake Edwards."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Victor/Victoria is so good, so exhilarating, that the only depressing thing about it is the suspicion that Mr. Edwards is going to have a terrible time trying to top it."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A musical boudoir farce, captivating at times, infuriating at others."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"All time classic in writing, Mancini music, and great stars."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Victor/Victoria is an entertaining romantic comedy with an appealing light-heartedness."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Don't miss this one. It sends sparks."
‑ , Time Out
"Blake Edwards's 1982 sex comedy has the most beautiful range of tones of any American film of its period: it is a work of dry wit, high slapstick, black despair, romantic warmth, and penetrating intelligence."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Edwards odd reworking of his orginal German-language film garnered awards at the time but hasn't aged well."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
"Edwards' enjoyable musical farce boasts terrific turns from Julie Andrews as a starving artist playing a man impersonating a woman, Garner as a Chicago gangster, Preston as the flamboyant gay friend, and Lesley Ann Warren as the perpetually horny floozie"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Because Edwards' cast so skillfully convinces us that his tightly controlled environments are loosely thrown together, the energy level of Victor/Victoria rarely flags."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Not only a funny movie, but, unexpectedly, a warm and friendly one."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Robert Preston is marvelous."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"A star vehicle for his wife Julie Andrews, Blake Edwards' Victor/Victoria takes its gender-bending premise to preposterous levels, but results in a sparkling and hugely enjoyable musical comedy."
‑ , Film4
"absolutely wonderful!"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Gorgeous to look at, thoughtful, but marred by star Garner's insistene that he not appear gay"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
