There is many a witty remark in this harum-scarum adventure.
The movie is a veritable concerto for their remarkable talents, put across by Hawks with maximal energy and voltage.
A weird look at an actress with a love-hate relation with her outrageous, dominating director.
[Howard Hawks'] mix of frantic pacing, whiplash shifts in tone and devil-may-care direction of glamorous stars in wacky parts launched the defining comedy genre of the thirties.
One of the sharpest ever comedy film scripts is turned in by Charles MacArthur and Ben Hecht.
Often credited as the first screwball comedy… an acerbic satire of show-business ego and superficiality.
Classic screwball romance between overbearing Broadway producer and his gorgeous but empty headed protege
A shining example of moviemaking magnificence.
Funny, but it gets too repetitious in the last act and slowly crumbles into the relatively obscure minor work it has become today.
Less a backstage farce than prototypical screwball, Howard Hawks' brilliantly funny Twentieth Century set the stage for the subgenre that most consider the peak of American screen humor.
Casually reverses and undermines its frumpy thesis by validating the effortlessly supple benefits of the seventh art.
...far from the classic it's often made out to be.
John Barrymore and Carole Lombard ham it up as thespians who are each other's best audience ... and maybe the only audience the other cares for. The one liners zing like hail in a storm.
A pretty funny comedy, but very predictable.
great early screwball comedy with a hilarious performance by john barrymore as a hammy broadway producer and carole lombard as his adorable diva. hawks soon perfected his rapid-fire style with bringing up baby and his girl friday
