The film earlier has one of the very best Tracy-Hepburn love scenes, full of the sense of private shelter that they uniquely purvey.

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.

It starts strong, but bogs in a muddled slapstick finale.
| Original Score: 4/5
Christopher Null

This is the first of many Tracy & Hepburn movies, and the chemistry's not quite there yet in this one. Some impressively funny scenes and a hilarious ending redeem the long stretches of predictability.
| Original Score: 4/5

The Oscar-winning screenplay provides plenty of smart lines along the way as art anticipates life.

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...

Brilliant except for the odd part about the adopted child and awkward ending.

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.

Woman of the Year, with its troubled and ambivalent mood, holds up much better than the flag-waving films that followed it after everybody in Hollywood became fashionably antifascist...
