USA Today - Claudia Puig
Cantinflas is a nostalgic, occasionally schlocky, look at the Mexican icon. While a substantial number of scenes are heavy-handed, the actor who plays Cantinflas— Óscar Jaenada — is a standout.

Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey
Cantinflas the movie tries to capture the magic of this much-loved legend, and it does so in fits and starts.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service - Roger Moore
A historically interesting story is painted in broad, colorless strokes, alternating as it does between soap opera and slapstick.

The result, I’m afraid, is a big disappointment, a disjointed mess that tries to create a point-counterpoint narrative with these two savvy showmen, which inevitably tips the scales in favoring one of them. The problem is, it’s not the one you think.

Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
This is interesting and fun to watch, but not so much for what it reveals as for what it hints at. Cantinflas just doesn't provide enough for getting a handle on the man, but will have me, at least, doing further reading and watching as it really whets the appetite to know more about this great talent.
