Garbo, Lubitsch, and the screwball comedy come together in this film in a most astonishing result: the closest thing to a convincing socialist heroine the English-speaking cinema has yet produced. It’s a nice payoff to the screwball tradition: that it had the freedom to offer even this surprise. (James Harvey, Romantic Comedy)
