Critic Reviews for Wide Open Faces

All Critics (1)

The result is mostly noise, slapstick, chase sequences, and many many close-ups of Joe E. Brown's wide-open face.

Audience Reviews for Wide Open Faces

Typical Joe E. shenanigans with the bonus of a very young Jane Wyman working her way up. Lyda Roberti's last film, she died shortly after of a heart attack at only 31.

Funny at the start and end, but mostly unfunny.
