The critic King thought it was "good cinema and another opportunity to laugh" and Noticias Gráficas considered it a "funny, agile and very well filmed police farce". Film writers Raúl Manrupe and María Alejandra Portela write: "Successful at the time, today it can be seen as an exercise of formal and conceptual arbitrariness. Valued in part by the critics, it retains some effective moments."[2]
