Critical reception[edit]

Amongst contemporary reviews, the News of the World wrote "Pretty blondes suddenly lose their skirts and pompous aristocrats are deprived of their pants. Such fun!" whereas Variety thought it "completely unsubtle in its approach;"[3] and more recently, TV Guide concluded "Auer's antics provide most of the laughs in this tame effort," and rated it 2/5 stars.[4]
