Critic Reviews for Woman of the Year
The film earlier has one of the very best Tracy-Hepburn love scenes, full of the sense of private shelter that they uniquely purvey.
Woman of the Year is an entertaining film with superb work by Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
Tracy and Hepburn were a great team, and this, their first outing together, set the seal on the pattern to follow into the next decade.
For the first time in months, this critical spectator feels like tossing his old hat into the air and weaving a joyous snake dance over the typewriter keys in celebration of Metro's triumphant Woman of the Year...
The premise is promising...But Stevens lacks the courage to make much of the conflict; the film ends with an embarrassing sequence in which Hepburn is tamed and installed in the kitchen.
Audience Reviews for Woman of the Year
I do like Hepburn and Tracy, and they give good performances, but the story is too predictable and boring.
Another great Tracy/Hepburn pairing. This is the closest of their films to show their actual relationship behind the scenes.
this is how to do romantic comedy. amazing chemistry and sharp dialogue
