Darren Carver-Balsiger’s review published on Letterboxd:
Based on what I've seen, Yasujirō Ozu seems to be a director of middle class problems. For example, one of the two plot lines in this film is that a woman wants her husband to play golf but he doesn't feel like playing golf that day. Yet, somehow, despite the simplicity, mundanity and privilege of these issues, Ozu makes them enjoyable, funny and pleasant to watch. 'What Did the Lady Forget?' is by no means perfect but it was a fine way to spend an hour.
