- TV Guide called it, " Lunacy and laughs galore, with director Winner's gimmicky style much in evidence."
- Hal Erickson wrote in The New York Times, " Director Michael Winner was still in his "mad mod" period when he lensed the wacky goings-on of You Must be Joking? His Death Wish pictures of the 1970s were in 1965 as remote as another galaxy."
