In DVD Talk, Bill Gibron wrote, "It's almost impossible to embrace this movie as well made and amusing. It is an entertaining antique, but that's about it." In The Spinning Image, Graeme Clark described the film as "something of an improvement on the Hermits' previous movie, Hold On!...The songs are better...what you're left with is an artefact that was not intended to last down the ages, but has anyway."
