Man, I think the whole cast is great! Those were, like, the top-tier supporting actors of the day. (Not to mention, Bergman is a smoke show...)
I can't think of a disparaging thing to say about the movie that wouldn't be nit-picking. (The plot is kind of far-fetched when you pull out the magnifying glass, but honestly, there are so many great things about this movie that nobody cares about - or even notices - the flaws.)

if you read his chapter on the film in his super insightful book Alexander Mackendrick: On Film-making and see the words he used, it sounds like he definitely doesn't like it lol. Corny, shameless, ludicrous, almost preposterous, etc. Pretty sure he used those words.
