Aside from Grant's typically charming performance, Kiss and Make-Up has exceedingly little to offer most viewers...

Audience Reviews for Kiss and Make-Up

Rather ridiculous early Cary movie. He's slick, maybe a little too slick but still charismatic even if he hadn't fully settled into his persona yet.

A hilarious and fun movie with Cary Grant and Edward Everett Horton, who are really funny and give great performances. It's essentially a story of being careful of what you wish for.

Interesting train-wreck. Many odd moments, elaborate set designs, corny slapstick, and a song about corned beef and cabbage. One of those movies where you really can't root for the characters to get together. So wrong in many ways that its just about watchable if you like the period. Overall this Screen Legends - Cary Grant set is fulfilling my expectations...really for diehard fans of lesser known 30s movies, than even Cary Grant fans.
