Bosley Crowther of The New York Times said, "In He's a Cockeyed Wonder, Mickey Rooney misses on all counts. His eyes, registering a sort of painful bewilderment, are perfectly normal and he's far from being a wonder. For the Palace's newcomer, a witless farce dealing with an ineffectual sputterer who wins his lady love, Terry Moore, after inheriting his uncle's magician's tricks and capturing a gang of inept thieves, tries hard to be sprightly and only succeeds in being limp. The sole cockeyed note in the proceedings is the off-screen narrator who describes the California town where all this uninspired business takes place as being "an average place populated by average people."[2]
