This is supposed to be snappy material, and it comes across gloomy.

The gin rummy game with Griffith and Goodman instead of Holliday and Crawford is enough to ruin a night out.
June 24, 2006
Where Holliday was always too sophisticated a butterfly right from the off, Griffith's copycat performance starts dumb -- but then never takes wing.

There's no sense of screwball mayhem in the picture, no topsy-turvy brightness.

To the growing list of unnecessary movies, add this remake of the Garson Kanin comedy.

Griffith almost makes it watchable. She is as charismatic a camera presence as ever, but her magic is mostly muted in this flat retread.
