    Brilliantly directed by Cukor, and brilliantly acted by the great cast. This movie is hilarious, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.

    Lovely comedy with some sharp observations. Judy is radiant and Jack's debut performance is a gem.

    when i saw jack lemmon was in this i thought he's gonna be the reason to watch it but as doesn't often happen i was wrong. judy holliday totally stole the show as gladys glover. she's up there with katherine hepburn and helena bonham carter in my opinion even though i've only seen her in this. the facial expressions the great prescene. she made this film work. don't get me wrong... jack was his usual great self but just didn't end up being the centerpiece here. very enjoyable feel good romance with some great acting
