Critic Reviews for The Matrimaniac

All Critics (2)

The picture has been adequately produced and while the story is a bit slender it suffices in every way.

It would seen as though Fairbanks never had been quite so entertaining as he is in this new play.

Audience Reviews for The Matrimaniac


Although I love Fairbanks, and he has a good amount of cool stunts in this movie, the story is so predictable and cliched and ridiculous that I almost wanted to hate it. But it kept drawing me back to liking it with the way it handles its ridiculousness and with Fairbanks being the cute and daring fiance. Overall it's pretty good, but it could be better.
