What an amazingly delightful film. I'm so glad to have finally seen it.

I loved Cary Grant, and Rosalind Russel in this. That being said, the comedy in this movie was extremely dated and hardly ever landed. I was really entertained throughout this movie. But as I previously mentioned the majority of the diolouge has not held up well over the years.

This is one of the few movies that only showcases actresses throughout the whole movie. It's like watching "A Letter To Three Wives" and not showing Addie Ross.
