The New York Times wrote, "back in 1941, Columbia united Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda in holy matrimony and acrimony as blueprinted in a script by Claude Binyon and a story by Dalton Trumbo labeled, "You Belong to Me." The verdict on this entry was amiable. It was a lightweight lot of fun done by a covey of actors who were happy in their work. Yesterday, the Palace received "Emergency Wedding,"...This remake of a yarn about a millionaire—an insecure gent ludicrously jealous of his doctor-wife—is lightweight without being especially gay or serious. "Emergency Wedding," except for a titter or two and an attempt to diagnose what ails organized medicine, is an unimpressive reproduction."
