Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, as the reincarnated Kerbys, do their assignments with great skill.

Too gentle and leisurely to survive as a solid classic, though there's pleasure to be found in the cast's graceful way with comedy and their smooth ensemble playing.

Boasting strong performances from Cary Grant and Constance Bennett, this sophisticated screwball comedy was so popular that it led to two sequels (without Grant).

A frightfully funny mix of special effects and languid humour which inspired two excellent sequels...

Sophisticated, but a touch too mild, saved by an ebullient cast.
