    Likeable but dated. William Powell is great as always. Carole Lombard is considered a great comic actress but i didn't see it in this movie.

    To make a story of social struggle a comedy during the depression is brilliant. Powell is perfect ! One of the best supporting casts ever. But ... as I watch this for the 3rd or 4th time , it occurs to me that Lombard's (and I LOVE Lombard) character is not so much 'spoiled rich girl' than perhaps a little 'special needs'? That's why 4.5 instead of 5 stars. Watch it again ... you'll see what I'm saying.

    What a gem of a film! In addition to being a really funny screwball comedy with great lines of dialogue and exquisite B&W photography, it is also a biting satire. I mean how do you do that? It is sophisticated and has resonance in modern times. Highly recommended.

    What a delightfully wonderful comedy and a biting satire of the upper society; memorable performances all around and there's non-stop sequence of memorable scenes too; Carole Lombard and William Powerll make a perfect pairing.

    GREAT MOVIE, "My Man Godfrey"(1936), (my first time seeing it, when it was on my TV starting at 8:10am(CT) on Tuesday March 10, 2020)! (I wrote these comments at 10:41am(CT) Tuesday March 10, 2020.)

    Loved it. Biting social commentary delivered by top flight stars.

    Shallow, misogynist, weak and filled with wailing and fakeness. Unbelievable irritating.
