Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There is little rhyme or reason to most of the action, but it's all highly palatable. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The speedy, 102-minute film is a total delight, and the performances are so invigorating that it can withstand many multiple viewings without losing its sparks. – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The enduring fascination of this 1938 screwball comedy is due to much more than its uproarious gags. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Sep 23, 2013

Fresh: Though it's almost impossible, try to sit back sometime and enjoy this 1938 Howard Hawks masterpiece not only for its gags, but for the grace of its construction, the assurance of its style, and the richness of its themes. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

A rainy day weekend movie

A screw-ball comedy with a lot of laughs. I found it interesting that there was some really edge-y humor in it for it's time! If it's a rainy weekend, make a bowl of popcorn and sit down with this fun film!

They TRULY don't...

....make them like they used to!! This is an enchanting, cleverly scripted, beautifully written and executed film, the likes of which we just don't see nowadays! It is clearly why these actors are considered the pinnacle of the industry, and why everyone should share this movie with their kids and grandkids when they are old enough to appreciate true cinematic quality..... What a delight!

The old movie that made me fall in love with old movies!!

Tired of old retreads? This moive makes me want to dress up, grab an unconventional woman, and take off on an adventure! Refreshing, funny, charming, and unexpected, this is time worth spending! Among my time 5 best loved movies. Let's get the word out 'cause folks don't know what they're missing!!!
