Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Exemplifies its own themes of honest diligence and warm-hearted communalism, making it much more memorable than some grander, fussier productions of the same period."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Good acting goes a long way in covering up many of the film's plot holes."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
