La Nación commented on the film stating: "It is not inspired by the environment we know but by that of those frothy American films which so frivolously take us to a world of millionaires... borne on the wings of Frank Capra." In his biography of Amadori in the collection "Los directores del cine argentino" (Argentine Cinema Directors), Claudio España comments: "A modern comedy with a predictable ending and an old theme but with much narrative freshness." For their part, Manrupe and Portela write: "A good Sandrini from the early days when he knew what he could do best, enhanced by the director when they first worked together."[2]
