Critic Reviews for Who Was That Lady?

All Critics (2)

Many a promising comedy begins with a good basic idea but squanders itself in frenzied overexertion.

December 3, 2019 | Full Review…

It stretches more comedy than one could expect from such thin material, and passes as a so-so comedy vehicle for the appealing stars.

Audience Reviews for Who Was That Lady?


Thin comedy put over by the stars. Tony comes off best as a basically good guy caught up in a situation that gets out of hand but Janet's character comes across as a borderline idiot and Dino is a pretty much a sexist slime. A space filler for all three, this was between Some Like it Hot and Spartacus for Tony, Rio Bravo and Bells are Ringing for Dean and Janet's next two films were Psycho followed by The Manchurian Candidate so this was easily left behind by all.
