What we think

If the aim is to switch new viewers onto the genius of Coward, it's going to take a lot more spirit than this.

What others think

The impish Leslie Mann is well cast as his dead wife, Elvira, who provides a jolt of creative inspiration. Judi Dench’s screechy caricature of psychic Madame Arcati is less winning.
Simran Hans The Guardian
[Edward Hall's] remake plays fast and loose with Coward’s comedy, retaining little of the playwright’s original dialogue. While this frees the drama from the mannered straitjacket of 40s sophisticated comedy, it doesn’t always feel like a good thing.
Philip Kemp Sight & Sound
Ultimately, this fleshed-out fantasy is neither as funny, as fierce nor as fearsome as the source material.
