    Yoji Yamada was given the Best Director prize at the Mainichi Film Awards for Tora-san's Dream-Come-True and the next entry in the series, Tora-san's Forget Me Not (1973). Stuart Galbraith IV writes that the film is hit-and-miss, with some amusing sequences, but suffers due to the overly clownish professor character. One of the highlights of the film, according to Galbraith, is the performance of the noted actress and director Kinuyo Tanaka. The German-language site molodezhnaja gives Tora-san's Dream-Come-True three out of five stars.
