Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine More rowdy comedy than you could shake a slapstick at. Jul 19, 2019 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com Stupid when it needs to be smart, obnoxious when it needs to be charming. Rated: 2/5 Aug 20, 2007 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A zany comedy that fails to work, probably because it's so arch, resistible and contrived. Rated: C Jul 29, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member We watched this film last night and We LOAO! I believe all the best character actors were cast in this film. A lot of sight gags at the end and dialogue that was very snappy! Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A slapstick comit from the 1930s is always enjoyable. Though it is not the best of Powell and Loy it's still funny. The one draw back is its all at the end of movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member William Powell is an artistic beatnik of sorts and Myrna Loy a high powered business woman trying to set him up with her sister. Anyone who's ever seen a Powell/Loy film can guess where this screwball comedy is leading. It's not their best film by a long shot and is more slapstick than their usual outings, but Powell and Loy have such great chemistry that it's still worth watching. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Solid Powell and Loy vehicle. Like Ginger Rogers, I can watch Myrna Loy in anything. Fun, goofy fluff. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Screwball comedy. Powell as the artist and Loy as his uptight love interest. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member pairing number 7 for loy/powell in this rom-com Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
