"This is the greatest film about Hollywood ever put on celluloid by Hollywood."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Remains the best drama ever made about the movies because it sees through the illusions, even if Norma doesn't."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"No other motion picture about Hollywood comes near Billy Wilder's searing, uncompromising and utterly fascinating portrait of the film community."
- TV Guide Magazine
"While all the acting is memorable, one always thinks first and mostly of Miss Swanson, of her manifestation of consuming pride, her forlorn despair and a truly magnificent impersonation of Charlie Chaplin."
- Thomas M. Pryor, New York Times
