Dave Kehr It's possible to prefer other Ernst Lubitsch films for their more serene stylings and more plangent emotions, but this 1932 production is probably the most perfectly representative of his works.
Variety Staff Despite the Lubitsch artistry, much of which is technically apparent, it's not good cinema in toto.
Charles Taylor It's a movie that feels both of its time and ahead of all the times that have followed.
J. Hoberman This comedy of jewel thieves is itself the prize sparkler of Lubitsch's enterprising career.
