    Rick GroenThe Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Joe Pytka does display an occasional nice touch with mood and atmosphere - at its infrequent best, the humor here is almost wry. But his editing is as jumpy as a mare in heat. [19 Aug 1989]

    Mick LaSalleSan Francisco Chronicle

    Let It Ride has atmosphere, plus a good setting, appealing actors - and a bad script. [19 Aug 1989]

    Chicago Tribune

    Let It Ride looks like it was vastly overshot and overwritten, then whittled down to something which resembles a movie but is really a long commercial for the joys of the racetrack. [22 Aug 1989]
