Howard Hawks's classic took the screwball cycle started by It Happened One Night to its dizzying, dazzling peak.

The enduring fascination of this 1938 screwball comedy is due to much more than its uproarious gags.

Bringing Up Baby's narrative and thematic directions have much in common with those of Shakespearean comedy.

A perfect example of why directors (and even us brilliant professional critics) can often be completely in the dark about what works.

Grant plays the timid Dr. David Huxley with the proper restraint and tics.

Grant e Hepburn estabelecem uma ótima dinâmica e revelam um impecável timing cômico, mas nem mesmo o ritmo invejável da narrativa consegue ocultar o fato de que algumas de suas principais gags envelheceram mal.

There is little rhyme or reason to most of the action, but it's all highly palatable.

One of the highest high points of the entire screwball comedy genre, with its sharp script and wonderfully balanced leads.

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.

Hard to believe that Hawks' lunatic screwball comedy, with top-notch turns by Grant and Hepburn, was underrated by critics and commercial flop at the time; history proves otherwise.

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.

The great screwball comedies of the 1930s and '40s are polar opposites of today's, which makes revisiting them a joy.
