Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Though it's almost impossible, try to sit back sometime and enjoy this 1938 Howard Hawks masterpiece not only for its gags, but for the grace of its construction, the assurance of its style, and the richness of its themes.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Fresh: One of Hollywood's greatest comedies.
- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: The speedy, 102-minute film is a total delight, and the performances are so invigorating that it can withstand many multiple viewings without losing its sparks.

It's a pretty messed up comedy, I must say... but it was a great messed up comedy.

"i caughn't give you anything but looove, baby!" long before i knew anything about androgeny (and i still don't know anything about it), these folks were stretching the boundaries of thought as to just who is it we really are before, and after, somebody else tells us who we really are, and doing it with rapier sharp wit. man, how i wish these filmic creations were real and closefriends of mine!

i must begin by stating that howard hawks is one of my favorite directors of all time and cary grant is growing on me more and more all the time, so while im not a big katherine hepburn fan i had high hopes for this comedy that is still considered among the greats of all time. this was possibly the most headache inducing film i have ever seen. i literally felt pain in my head watching these "zaney" antics that were built on rediculous coincidences and confusing diologues that made me want to stop the film numerous times. the characters were dry and unlikeable and most of the sequences were uncomfortable to watch. it keeps itself from the worst of the worst by reputation and starpower, but one of the most frustrating and disappointing films i have ever seen.
