Time Out says

It's a shame that Grant, one of the finest actors ever to grace a cinema screen, should have logged this sentimental claptrap as his penultimate film. He plays an irascible South Pacific beachcomber who becomes a military observer for the island during World War II, and finds his independence softened by a French schoolmarm and her seven cloyingly sweet girl pupils. Admittedly, Grant frequently looks as if he really didn't want to be there, wading lost in a sludge of turgid drama and pallid comedy.
