When you cast a nostalgic eye back over the excellent career of Cary Grant, the period in the 1940s where he made inoffensively bland comedies will never the highlight. The fact that he starred in 3 of the very best films made in this decade only serve to make the rest of them look that much less impressive. Every Girl Should Be Married is the epitome of the material he was working with during that time. The film must have been an anachronism almost upon release. It very much picks up the 'women just want to have a family and be a good housewife' baton and runs with it unapologetically down the street for 85-minutes cracking jokes about a man's reluctance to fall in love with a sociopathic stalker who won't take no for an answer.
That said, it's still a fairly entertaining picture despite the lack of laughs, and Cary Grant is always worth watching. Betsy Drake is fairly over the top, trading her chemistry with Grant towards the end (they married in real life the following year) for her questionable talent in an up-and-down forgettable performance.
