A sparkling and effervescing piece of entertainment.
Despite a belated drift towards sentimentality, this remains a refreshingly intimate movie.
As warm and refreshing a ray of sunshine as we've had in a very late Spring.
Stevens moves things along a lot more briskly than is usual for him.
A gossamer-weight, charming film about how very awful it is to have the war fill every minute of your waking world - I don't know how that alchemy works, but it's sublime.
Hilarious screwball comedy.
George Stevens' charming romantic comedy, about wartime housing conditions, benefits immensely from the chemistry between Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea.
Black and white, vaudevillian-style hilarity ensues.
A delightful and effervescent comedy marked with terrific performances.
Charming wartime comedy that only veers towards the end into sentimentality.
Hilarious wartime comedy with Charles Coburn stealing the show.
The film is best at the beginning.
George Stevens' comic war-at-home tale about the housing and man shortage in Washington D.C. that works principally because of the chemistry of its cast, particularly Charles Coburn as a businessman turned Cupid. Joel McCrea is the standard stalwart male lead, and Jean Arthur is wonderful as the woman whose friendship is more important than how she looks. Some nice screwball bits in here.
Although there were a couple of movies with this same story, I enjoyed this one. The actors are good and the movie is very funny.
starts off screwball and ends somewhat sappily. it's easy to see the template for every lame romantic comedy in these old films. the cast is delightful: hilarious charles coburn who won an oscar for this role, the underrated joel mccrea and always charming jean arthur; 43 (!) and still adorable
Great screwball comedy! The map and schedule bit near the beginning is one of the best bits of comedy business I've seen. Jean Arthur is lovely but a little bit of a wallflower too. Joel McCrea is tall, dark, and mysterious. Charles Coburn is so wacky with his repeated catchphrases, "eight girls to every fella," and "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead." Gaines as Pendergast is as square as they come complete with awful hair piece. The movie seems a little rough around the edges as if it was under-rehearsed. Especially Jean Arthur, who seems to be stumbling with quite a few of her lines. But it works for this movie, as the action looks more live theatre and spur of the moment, and Jean Arthur's character appears more real. Some of the best situation comedy and verbal jabs in the screwball genre!
