January 26, 2021
It's a well-paced, light weight comedy with a facility for changing scene and mood that is thoroughly engaging throughout.

Pat and Mike may not be as memorable as their other pairings but the romantic sports comedy stands up on its own against their other films.

Its chief trouble is that it is packed with such long-drawn- out scenes as golfers lining up for crucial putts and carefully tapping a ball that is predestined by the script either to drop in or not to.

Coming hot on the heels of Adam's Rib (1949), one of their most successful comedies, Pat and Mike feels a bit tired, and its lackadaisical pacing feeds into the general sense of ennui.

The one that contains the classic line utilized in countless Tracy & Hepburn tribute pieces: "Not much meat on her, but what's there is cherce."

Pat and Mike, even though it was made almost 70 years ago, offers something much more interesting-a view of a man and a woman who find their way to equal partnership, each making the other better in the process.

Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin here wrote an engaging screenplay about emotion-without-display for their rare uncut diamonds.
August 8, 2008
Original comedy, with a rich look at women's sports - and gender roles.
August 4, 2008
The familiarity the two stars communicate goes far beyond the script.
August 4, 2008
One of the season's gayest comedies.
August 4, 2008
Tracy is given some choice lines in the script and makes much of them in an easy, throwaway style that lifts the comedy punch.
August 4, 2008
One of the better Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn comedies -- not so much for the screenplay by Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, which lacks the bite and sophistication of Adam's Rib, as for the relaxed and graceful interplay of the stars.
August 4, 2008
The best of the Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn cycle.
April 5, 2007
Slight sports comedy.
October 7, 2006
The film doesn't have much plot but the dialogue is bright, and the roles tailor-made for stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Hepburn demonstrates with physical strength what she proved in Adam's Rib with intellect, that women can be equal to men

There are far too many shots featuring real-life sports stars, but the sparring leads, and Ray's dim boxer, work superbly together under Cukor's deceptively effortless, always elegant direction.
March 25, 2006
Let's not be too analytic about the likelihood of the yarn or the tightness of the script Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin have written for this romp.

Another fine teaming, with great support from Aldo Ray

Hepburn and Tracy at their romantic-antagonistic best!
