Time Out says

Given the full swinging London mod movie treatment of the day, Bill Naughton's funny and rather moving play emerges as a terribly dated (and one might add, terribly misogynist) account of a Cockney lecher's selfish seduction and abuse of a series of compliant females. Of course he gets his comeuppance, in an ending that has all the moral weight and sincerity of a DeMille sex'n'sawdust spectacular. Good performances, though.
