Audience Member This is a touching comedy/drama for 1931 when they all were feeling the ropes of this new medium. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member ok early weepie or woman's pic Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny but predictable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Two jilted singles fall into a convenient marriage to keep one another company, but have a child together and then the husband naturally gets another shot with his ex, which was the get out of jail free card that they'd entered the relationship relying on. I wasn't all that blown away, probably wouldn't re-watch. Pass, unless you're a huge fan of Irene Dunne, as she carries most of the screen time. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet film with good performances. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
