Elena de la Torre Cine-Mundial The comedy in its first half is of a delightful freshness and originality. In the second it weighs a little and becomes boring. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 17, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A well-acted but predictable romantic comedy. Rated: B- Aug 18, 2016 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Jimmy Stewart stars with Hedy Lamarr in this sporadically charming comedy, the last he made before going into WWII.

Frances H Very disappointednting, since Jimmy Stewart and Hedy Lamar are usually better actors, but the script let them down. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Steve D Cute with well matched stars. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Hedy Lamarr is a beautiful Viennese refugee who's about to be deported, but then marries American James Stewart so she can legally stay in the country, and romance and comedy ensue. It's a lightweight bit of fluff, but it's awfully charming, mostly thanks for Lamarr and Stewart. Quite enjoyable! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review dan u Such a lighthearted movie. :) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member "i bet it never happen to fireflies" owww watta sweet heart ^^ Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member james stewart and hedy lamarr have fantastic chemistry and the scenes they are together are the strongest of the "come live with me". however, the film never tries anything original and is rather formulaic all through out. though it's not without a handful of genuinely sweet and funny moments. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
