Reviews

“This is Capra at his best, very funny and very light.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“Every line of dialogue is calculated bliss, the chemistry between the leads is magnificent, and the backdrop of Depression-era America allows for a prescient and amusing subplot about how well-heeled urbanites are compelled to misbehave when they have no money in their designer pocket. […] very easy to fall in love with.”
– David Jenkins, Time Out (London)
