Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Tatum O’Neal creates a character out of thin air, makes us watch her every moment and literally makes the movie work.
The A.V. Club - Noel Murray
Snappy patter reigns again, but by letting the story develop in open spaces rather than through tight edits, Bogdanovich fosters an atmosphere of freedom and promise.
Chicago Reader - Dave Kehr
Ryan O'Neal is a con man and Tatum O'Neal is the foundling who may or may not be his daughter. Though their relationship is conventionally drawn, it has a heart that Bogdanovich hasn't been able to recapture.
Time Out - Unnamed
Modern cynicism and efficient acting hold the potential mushiness at bay, and the pair's picaresque odyssey through the Kansas dustbowl, during which they vie for control over their increasingly bizarre partnership, is admirably served by Laszlo Kovacs' marvellous monochrome camerawork.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Bogdanovich's warmest film, featuring charming performances from real-life father and daughter Ryan and Tatum O'Neal.
