Reviews:
“One of the finest screwball comedies ever.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“The speedy, 102-minute film is a total delight, and the performances are so invigorating that it can withstand many multiple viewings without losing its sparks.”
– Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter

“Though it’s almost impossible, try to sit back sometime and enjoy this 1938 Howard Hawks masterpiece not only for its gags, but for the grace of its construction, the assurance of its style, and the richness of its themes.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
