“A frivolous masterpiece…a mixture of visual and verbal slapstick, and of high artifice and pratfalls. Barbara Stanwyck keeps sticking out a sensational leg, and Henry Fonda keeps tripping over it. She’s a cardsharp, and he’s a millionaire scientist who knows more about snakes than about women; neither performer has ever been funnier. The film…is full of classic moments and classic lines; it represents the dizzy high point of Sturges’s comedy writing. With Charles Coburn, Eugene Pallette, William Demarest, and Eric Blore.” (Pauline Kael)
