“Adapted by William Goldman from his own novel, which he says was inspired by a book he read as a child, but cheerfully transformed by his wicked adult imagination. It is filled with good-hearted fun, with performances by actors who seem to be smacking their lips and by a certain true innocence that survives all of Reiner's satire.”

– Roger Ebert
