Rolling Stone
A lighter-than-air comedy than runs on pure fizz.

The film's bemused but genuine respect for the ingenious obviousness of a bygone cinematic language is quite moving.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A kind of homage to that more simple and elegant time.

New York Daily News
Almost corny enough to be hip.

Entertainment Weekly
A premise masquerading as a movie.

Charming cinematic bauble.

L.A. Weekly
Though the story is often silly to the point of ridiculous, its goofy tone and charming characters, especially Frazier's Johnny, create a lovely idealization of a long-gone era.

Mimics the kind of comedy that doesn't date particularly well to begin with.
40
Village Voice
Good-natured but labored, the film clings to its lone gimmick with increasing desperation.
25
New York Post
Grows tiresome rather quickly.
