CRITICS OF "The Secret Of My Success"
Chicago Sun-Times

Quintessential 1980s comedy
New York Times

May 20, 2003

The movie builds up a lot of good will early on, which is needed when the time comes to resolve its farcical complications.
Washington Post

January 01, 2000

Obviously, no new ground is being broken here, but director Ross keeps things humming in an endearingly old-fashioned way.
