Rotten: Although the audible devices worked exceedingly well in most instances, it is questionable whether it would not have been wiser to leave some of the voices to the imagination. – Mordaunt Hall, New York Times, Jan 6, 2014

Rotten: A tedious musical comedy embedded in a routine story like a fly in celluloid. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The Broadway Melody has not stood the test of time in ways that many of its more artistic contemporaries have. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jan 19, 2011
