Powell and Loy!
The madcap pace and the instant charms of all involved keep the comedy afloat.
Plays as one big mother-in-law joke.
The least of the Powell-Loy teamings.
I'll start by saying seeing William Powell in drag is probably worth the price of admission on its own. Early on, you also have his playful repartee with Myrna Loy, in this the 10th of the 14 movies they made together. In 'Love Crazy', the happily married couple is about to celebrate its 4th anniversary, but get interrupted first by her mother-in-law (Florence Bates), and then by his old flame (Gail Patrick). In a comedy of errors, Loy thinks Powell has cheated on her, seeks a divorce, and then Powell attempts to postpone the proceedings by feigning insanity. It's fun to see Powell in various screwball moments, including getting his head stuck between elevator doors, pretending he's a teapot, and doing things like shoving round blocks into his mouth. Powell had tremendous range and carries the movie; Loy isn't bad herself, but has less to work with. The movie degenerates a bit towards the end, but it was reasonably engaging and fun to watch.
Another fantastic movie teaming Powell and Loy. It's hilarious! A must see.
Utter nonsense put over by the stars.
Not the best of Powell and Loy's team-ups, but it's got some fun moments. Some high points include Loy in her nightgown and Powell in drag. There's also a fun scene where Powell feigns insanity at a society party by impersonating Abraham Lincoln and freeing hats into a pool. Love Crazy won't change your life, but it'll probably make you laugh for an hour and a half.
