In his updated review for The Hollywood Reporter in 2018, Jean Hoelscher said: "Jon Peters’ first production achieves a high level of quality. Barbra Streisand’s fantastic singing voice shows to the best advantage her incredible talent. The movie falls short of greatness, but it compares more than favorably not only with the usual concert film (good as a few of them are) but also with the current love stories on film."
