The tone remains upbeat despite all the dodgy dealings, making this a cheery and entertaining film throughout.
A charming cast, headed by Tracy, Harlow, William Powell and Myrna Loy, elevates this screwball comedy, a typically glossy MGM fare of the Depression era.
Earns its keep simply for the moment when Loy, expecting Powell to describe her eyes in gushing terms, is instead startled when he remarks that they look like "angry marbles."
The actors are game but the hijinks are too stilted and tame by today's standards.
More intriguing for behind-the-scenes gossip than its rather familiar screwball comedy machinations.
All-star cast of MGM regulars William Powell, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy, and Jean Harlow.
Classic screwball farce. Not as funny as it might be, but worthwhile.
Altho billed with Harlow as the star don't t be fooled. Powell and Loy had already struck box office gold 2 years previously with The Thin Man and so this is really their movie, the studio cashing in on their undenible chemistry together. Harlow and Tracy are only second bananas in this poor second cousin to a screwball comedy. Harlow is in fact wasted as a shrew while Tracy fares only a little better as a foil to Powell. Ultimately a disappointment though.
right up there with the classic screwball comedies. no idea why it isn't more well known. scenes between powell and tracy are pure gold
I can't seem to remember much about this movie right now, and reading the synopsis just confused me more. Obviously I gave it four stars, so I enjoyed it, but I'll have to see it again to see why.
Not what I was expecting. Truth be told I found it a bit disapointing. I just felt there could have been more comdey and less drama. And Ik that the drama is what makes this movie so funny, but somehow it just didnt feel right. It was off by about a quarter of an inch. All the leads are great of corse. I didnt really care for Spencer Tracy or his character though. And lets talk about how Jean Harlows Character gets totally ripped off and confused at the end. Sad. :( But all in all for one of those classics, you have to see it.
