Dated and absurd soap opera that surprisingly still works mainly because of the good chemistry between co-stars James Stewart and Carole Lombard.

Stewart is touching as a man who feels completely powerless to provide for his wife or to improve his standing.

Audience Reviews for Made for Each Other

It's realistic and the actors are good, but the story isn't exciting, it's a boring drama, more like watching real life than a movie, at least the ending was okay, but overall it's pretty boring.

If you see this for the 1st time now, you'd probably think "How derivative is THIS!?!?" And it seems to be...a man and woman get married, they have problems with money and whatnot, she gets preggers, the baby gets sick and there's a rush against the clock to get the meds before said baby cashes in. Only you'd be dead wrong. It's the OTHER million films you've seen this in since this one was released that are derivative. And this one is just about the best of the lot, made during that magical year of 1939 like it was. What movie WASN'T good that was released in 1939? I'll expect the answers to that question typed, double-spaced and turned in on my desk first thing in the morning. ;)

It's sad seeing good actors wasted in such a mediocre film. Not to mention the ludicrous american family, middle-class ideological core that lies behind the bad script.
