AllMusic said the 1972 film "contains some definitive Minnelli performances, particularly her rendition of the title song". The Guardian described it as "the hardest scene in the show, so shopworn as to have long ago collapsed into kitsch". Broadway World wrote Michelle Williams' "version of the title song has a wrenching, dead-eyed quality that hauntingly undercuts its light lyrics." It has been described as "stirring", "devastating", and "jaunty".
