Critic Reviews for The Marrying Kind
Despite its buoyant tone and comic energy, George Cukor's drama of scenes from a marriage, as viewed in flashback by a couple in divorce court, is a scathing work of New York neorealism.
The acting of Judy Holliday (for which the part was written) and Aldo Ray is good, but what starts as a comedy changes to a melodrama that uncharacteristically of Cukor's work is condescending to the little people.
Immensely charming comedy-drama
Audience Reviews for The Marrying Kind
"The acting of Judy Holliday (for which the part was written) and Aldo Ray is good, but what starts as a comedy changes to a melodrama that uncharacteristically of Cukor's work is condescending to the little people."
An average romantic comedy for the fifties, with a predictable story and ending, it's not all that exciting or interesting except if you're a fan of someone in the cast.
6.5/10 Judy Holliday's outstanding performance is a big plus in this film. It's an odd mix of broad comedy and heavy drama, but for the most part, it works. Well written and directed.
