New York Times, 04.13.1934 "Irene Dunne does very well by the role of Tony:"
Variety, 04.17.1934 "As a starring vehicle for Irene Dunne the picture is not precisely what a star might order. It would be unfair to state that Miss Dunne is secondary to other characters, but the fact is that the three feminine roles are of about equal importance...Miss Dunne is never negative or passive and she mixes a nice reasonableness with a nice yen for getting even."
