A prototypical screwball comedy, with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne as the married couple with all the wealth, wit, and charm required of married couples in screwball comedies. They also fight like demons, divorce, have dalliances with dames and dullards, and wind up back together mere seconds before the fadeout. Director Leo McCarey claimed that much of the film was ad-libbed, while Cary Grant complained that too much of the film was ad-libbed, the final result being a product of mere chance. Whatever, it works, and was a key film in establishing Grant's screen persona of sophisticated humor and elegance. ½ - JL
