Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: This is Capra at his best, very funny and very light, with a minimum of populist posturing.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Tuesday, December 12, 2006
Fresh: This charming romantic comedy, while grounded in the context of the Depression, offered light fare that's uncharacteristic of Capra. It might have been the first true sleeper since no one involved anticipated such critical and commercial success.

This charming classic may be the very first screwball comedy in Cinema, a funny, amusing and optimistic film with a deliciously sharp dialogue and wonderful performances from both Gable and Colbert - who have a great onscreen chemistry together.

A classic movie that's the trumpet that tore down the walls of Jericho for me. "It Happened One Night" has it all: genuine tension, laughs, and character development to make even the most critical movie critic giggle with glee. Pure movie-making magic here. With a very slim narrative but extremely potent character development, "It Happened One Night" is a film that immerses audiences deeply into the relationships. You know that same formula every romantic film runs through? "It Happened One Night" is the definitive film that started it all, and it did so in spectacular fashion.
