  • Critic Reviews of "Ball Of Fire"

    Village Voice
    December 22, 2015

    Ball of Fire came out five days before Pearl Harbor. You can imagine Americans listening to its flood of slang and knowing exactly what they were fighting for.

    TIME Magazine
    February 04, 2009

    Actor Cooper plays his Mr. Deeds role with the authority of long familiarity, and Miss Stanwyck (once Ruby Stevens, of Brooklyn) is equally at home in hers.

    August 14, 2007

    Casting is meticulously perfect to make every character a caricature of itself.

    Chicago Reader
    August 14, 2007

    A delight.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    Pure joy.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    Mr. Cooper may be a little loose-tooth in spots, but he gives a homespun performance such as only he can give. Miss Stanwyck is plenty yum-yum (meaning scorchy) in her worldly temptress role.

    Antagony & Ecstasy

    Great, deep, humane, well-built comedy. But throw in Barbara Stanwyck's unbelievable act of character creation, and that's when Ball of Fire becomes its best self.

    Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
    February 18, 2011

    'I've gone goofy, completely goofy,' Cooper says, as the chaos of slang overwhelms his orderly vocabulary: 'Bim-buggy, slap-happy.' Watching 'Ball of Fire,' you feel similarly liberated.

    Classic Film and Television
    July 07, 2010

    One of the best screwball comedies.

    June 24, 2007

    As the timid professor and burlesque stripper, Cooper and Stanwyck are at the top of their form in Hawks' delectable screwball comedy, based on a witty script from Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett.

    Slant Magazine
    May 24, 2007

    After the rush of His Girl Friday, Ball of Fire is a more sedate ride, full of such marvelous passages as the conga line Stanwyck's delectable Sugarpuss teaches the professors.

    Does a fine job subverting the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs children's story.
