Time Out says

A characteristically slick (if moralising) script by Hecht and fine camerawork from Garmes can't quite prevent tedium setting in as the excellent cast play a group of moral down-and-outs (embezzler, con-man, dancer, disillusioned playwright) who see the light and discover that life is worth living during a night's gambling in a New York café. The problem lies less in the pacing - as one would expect with Hecht, it moves along quickly enough - than in the incursions of uplifting sentiment into the generally downbeat proceedings.
