Few Alfred Hitchcock movies are more fun to watch than To Catch a Thief. [15 Jun 2007, p.C7]

Conceived as froth with an edge and a smash on both counts. [11 May 2007, p.4D]

Hitchcock makes it come off with a pair of beauties named Cary Grant and The French Riviera. [09 Nov 1955, p.6]

The Observer (UK)Philip French
An engaging comedy thriller, one of the Master's rare straightforward whodunnits, producing real cinematic chemistry between Grace Kelly (her third and last Hitchcock film) and Cary Grant (his third and penultimate Hitchcock picture). [19 Oct 2014, p.48]

Chicago Sun-TimesBruce Dancis
All that beauty, Hitchcock's panache and a certain amount of cleverly suggestive, double entendre-filled banter between Grant and Kelly may be enough to keep To Catch a Thief entertaining for modern viewers, but it clearly falls short of the director's best work.

Very light-hearted and glamorous. [09 Nov 2002, p.R24]

There are few thrills in this romantic comedy-thriller--it's no more than a pleasant minor diversion, but it does have a zingy air of sophistication.
