Time Out says

Cromwell, who played the doddery priest in Altman's A Wedding, had a lengthy career as a director particularly adept with women leads; and certainly the entirely wonderful Katharine Hepburn constitutes the main interest in this otherwise plain sentimental comedy of backwoods superstition confronting civilisation in the form of a dam construction company. Not remotely dismayed by the role of hillbilly, nor by having to mouth down-home Christian cracker mottoes, she cuts an acidic path through the general coyness, and runs counter to the formulary script by suggesting that finally she remains a shrew.
