"For the first few minutes [it] gives every forced sign of being one more gag-stuffed, landbound contraption. Then... for three-quarters of an hour it is sparingly, achingly funny. Then it settles back down... and bumps along more or less predictably. But the glow of startled gratitude last for quite a while."
(Richard Eder, New York Times)
"It's all fast, bright, surface stuff, almost obsessively intent on never letting a laugh get away, misfiring, backfiring, skidding and crashing gears all the way, often quite as thrilling, if not always as ludicrous, as some of trhe films it mocks."
(Alan Brien, Sunday Times)
