Critic Reviews for Designing Woman
There's real chemistry between Bacall and Peck, which Minnelli emphasizes in carefully observed intimacies and brusque banter alike.
The uproarious "ravioli scene" is the movie's most famous interlude (Peck tribute shows often would employ it to demonstrate the actor's underrated comic chops), but there are plenty of memorable set-pieces in this effervescent effort.
This mildley entertaining comedy is a reworking of the superior Stevens' 1942 "Woman of the Year," with Gregory Peck in the Spencer Tracy role and Lauren Bacall in Katharine Hepburn's.
Audience Reviews for Designing Woman
This is another silly romantic comedy with nothing new to offer. Peck and Bacall should have passed on this movie.
Rehash of Tracy's and Hepburn's Woman of the Year from 15 years before. Not a bad retelling. There are many funny observations. However, I like the chemistry, frazzled nerves, and rapid dialog of the movie with the classic couple better.
Designing Woman from 1957 starring the beautiful Lauren Bacall and the great leading man Gregory Peck. I have been wanting to see this film and finally watched it recently and loved it. The movie centers on a wealthy and very high scoiety lady (Bacall) and a very man's man (Peck). Both fall in love and marry quickly after meeting. Soon thereafter they find out through funny situations that they are very different but have one major thing in common the love for one another, can it rule all?
