I don't think this is something I'll like but I'll watch it anyway.

Faultless comedy. 8\10



If it's "faultless" shouldn't it be a 10/10? 8)

This actually wasn't bad, it was pretty entertaining, especially for such an old movie. A solid effort form the then 30 years old George Stevens, with a very cute Barbara Stanwyck giving her best, and also a solid supporting cast. The story is fragmented too much (a fairly standard movie-fault at the time), but the humor is decently witty and dry and not overblown as they started doing later (the initial 15 minutes or so are top-notch).


(somewhere slightly above a) 7/10

Today.

And why?

Because it's on the telly. If not I'd feel bad later.

It may be faultless as a comedy and not as a movie.

You'd feel bad because you'd lose a movie I gave a 8\10?

Well, sorta...

... but mostly because I've never seen it before (and don't own a copy). ;)

Good point.
