One of the best comedies of the 30s. A luminescent Irene Dunn whose comic timing could not be better. A suave and bemused Cary Grant. Ralph Bellamy at his clueless-est.

A hilarious comedy from the golden age gets the Criterion treatment. Irene Dunne and Cary Grant play a married couple whose marriage ends up on the rocks in this light-hearted tale that finds the pair not quite sure about going through with a divorce or not, and going out of their way to sabotage each other's attempted relationships. The actors seem to have a ball playing off each other, and the film is a treat. They don't make them like this anymore.

a very enjoyable Grant/Dunn comedy from the 1930s
the special features explain how Grant came to be the amusing debonair pratfall artist that we can enjoy in so many films over his lifetime

Five Stars... My favorite movie! Cary and Irene are great, as is Mr. Smith the wire fox terrier. Hysterical, love it!

This movie is a bit dated but that's to be expected. But, who doesn't love Cary Grant!

Cary Grant never disappoints me. Just watch Father Goose the fourth time.

The script is a little too stupid for me. Doesn't work the way "His Girl Friday" does.

One of the best comedies of the 30s. A luminescent Irene Dunn whose comic timing could not be better. A suave and bemused Cary Grant. Ralph Bellamy at his clueless-est. Grant and Dunn seem truly to enjoy playing off of each other (I bet the outtakes were hilarious.) So many perfectly realized scenes -- too many to call out BUT...watch especially for the one in the night club, both at the table, during the entertainment and especially on the dance floor AND the one in which Dunn morphs from the sophisticated Lucy into the rather racier Lola. I'll leave you with a question: Who, if anyone, was unfaithful?

Superb. Not quite as good as His Girl Friday, but what is.

VERY GOOD 1937 comedy which was a bit slow taking off - I almost bailed after first half hour - but it picked up and I rather enjoyed it's broad comedic style and got a few laughs.
Cary Grant provided rather smooth acting - as did Mr. Smith (the dog).

I had three or four (drinks) before I came, but they're starting to wear off, and you know how THAT is.

I guess it's easier for her to change her name, than her whole family to change theirs.

That's the trouble with modern marriage. People IMAGINING things.
