Critic Reviews of "The Miracle of Morgans Creek"TIME MagazineDecember 10, 2014
The overall result is one of the most violently funny comedies, one of the most original, vigorous and cheerfully outrageous moving pictures that ever came out of Hollywood.VarietyNovember 13, 2007
Done in the satirical Sturges vein, and directed with that same touch, the story makes much of characterization and somewhat wacky comedy, plus some slapstick, with excellent photography figuring throughout.Chicago ReaderNovember 13, 2007
Caustic and chaotic in the arch Sturges manner, it's probably his funniest and most smilingly malicious film.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Great verbal gags and non-sequiturs, fast-paced action, and a thorough irreverence for all things deemed respectable -- politicians, policemen and magistrates included -- make it a lasting delight.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Sturges as author and director, is thoroughly up to his stinging style in this film.Empire MagazineDecember 10, 2014
Sturges' no-holds-barred comic cristicism of American Forces abroad is still challenging and funny.Radio TimesDecember 10, 2014
Writer/director Preston Sturges was one of Hollywood's greatest satirists and this blistering comedy is one of his best films.The NationAugust 30, 2012
I suspect that Sturges feels that conscience and comedy are incompatible. It would be hard for a man of talent to make a more self-destructive mistake.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Hilarious WWII comedy flirts with taboos.Three Movie BuffsJune 17, 2010
The controversy surrounding it has long since faded away, but the humor is timeless.minnpost.comSeptember 01, 2009
Six decades before Diablo Cody and Juno, Preston Sturges carried unplanned comedy to term.EmanuelLevy.ComNovember 19, 2006
One of Sturges' master works, this comedy turns upside down Hollywood's conventions of small-town life with original vision and crackling dialogue.
