Time Out says

RKO temporarily parted Fred and Ginger after this musical, which didn't have the flow of earlier efforts. Taking off from an ocean-going romance, in which the outrageous assumption is made that Astaire has got Rogers pregnant, it stops adumbrating Leo McCarey's great Love Affair by getting into a silly will-they-won't-they round, saved only by the Gershwin numbers. These include 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off', which has a rather strained and cumbersome roller-skating sequence with sticky moments on Ginger's part, and the outright winner, 'They Can't Take That Away from Me'.
