Audience Reviews for Eternally Yours

This was one of my very favorite movies when I was a kid. Let's just say... I kind of wish I hadn't watched it again. It's not a bad movie at all. It's just not great, and rewatching it at 23 really ruined the magic I felt watching it at 12. The earlier scenes are good, when Niven and Young are married and doing their magic act together. But once they split and it becomes a remarriage comedy, it majorly falters, especially when held up against brilliant remarriage comedies like Hitchcock's Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Sturges' The Lady Eve.

Minor but entertaining fluff, the stars are good and the score is memorable. (It was nominated for best score in a very competitive year). David Niven gives a natural performance, Loretta Young comes off a little stiff though.
