Whimsical and charming screwball comedy with a great turn by Joel McCrea and an excellent performance by Veronica Lake. Sweet natured to a fault with not only a great sense of humor but an appreciation for it.

Mildly funny film that is equal parts satire, screwball comedy and melodrama. I didn't find all of these shades to work well together, but I was entertained by the eccentric performances.

A fascinating social commentary on entertainment vs. reality that also manages to be very funny at times, in a madcap, screwball kind of way. In my opinion, this is one of the more dense Sturges films and, if you don't watch it with a meticulous eye, you'll likely miss the point.

Not for me. It tires to be funny, tries to be a drama and it tries to be good. It is below average on all 3 tries. How did this make it into the new AFI top 100? I can think of at least 100 more deserving movies.

This Preston Sturges comedy always felt a bit overrated to me. There are some good lines and McCrea gives a knockout performance as the movie director, but it really doesn't live up to the hype. Final Grade: C+

Unfortunately, I never got into it that much. There are better films by both Prerston Sturges and Veronica Lake.
