TV Guide wrote that a "good performance by Victor and an intelligent script lift this one above the ranks." The film historians Steve Chibnall and Brian McFarlane agree: "The film is quite neatly structured but, without the coherence which Victor's sympathetic understanding of the central character gives, it would seem much thinner than it does. Its comedy centres on the drabness of an oppressive domestic situation and, in the flowering of George Potter, what may be lost in unthinking conformity to a routine."
