  1. The Distinguished Gentleman is an easy, breezy romp of a movie, a low comedy of highly entertaining order.

    Murphy shows an easy versatility, going for guffaws one minute and pulling off a grinner the next. [04 Dec 1992]
  3. Murphy's comic brilliance is at the service of the story and he positively shines with a number of diverse and zany impersonations, most enjoyably a Jesse Jackson takeoff.
  4. While the result is inevitably middle of the road, it still manages to be the funniest picture Murphy has made in quite some time. [04 Dec 1992]
  5. With a refreshing absence of earnestness, the movie mainly spins out many variations on a theme: Easy Street begins and ends on Capitol Hill. [03 Dec 1992]
