Critic Reviews for Every Day's a Holiday

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

There is substantial comedy relief supplied by Charles Winninger, as the blustering chairman of the reformers; Charles Butterworth, his butler and political adviser; Walter Catlett, play producer; and Lloyd Nolan, the crooked boss.

As with so many West films, the reason to see "Holiday" is to watch her, with her famous walk, purring interjections and lascivious glances. She is never anything less than beguiling.

For the last two or three pictures, Mae West fans have had to fight losing battles in her defense. But now that's all over, for Every Day's a Holiday is one of the funniest pictures of the year.

Mae is still head overseer, and as long as she is present the male supporters (Charles Winninger, Charles Butterworth, Edmund Lowe) are just water boys.

The last film Mae West made for Paramount, the studio she saved from bankruptcy with her previous hits.
