Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Ultrapassado e machista, este filme seria totalmente descartvel caso no contasse com um senso de humor leve e ingnuo para os padres atuais. Rated: 3/5 Jun 8, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member one of the few '50's movies to have feminist overtones Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Another film from the TCM Cruise: Snappily written dramedy about three men in line for a promotion whose wives will ultimately make the final impression upon which their CEO bases his decision, so we have three all-star couples vying for top dog. Great film, well worth a look. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is pretty good! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member *** (out of four) Entertaining film about the head of a business who is looking to hire his successor. He invites the candidates to New York for the weekend, but his real motives is to rate the wives. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Stylish, ultra glamorous drama with a light touch. As delicious as a box of chocolates without the guilt afterward, Everyone is good but Betty Bacall wraps it up with a sharp edged portrait of a corporate wife who has built a tough exterior to protect herself but still has a good heart. Clifton Webb is an upper crust delight! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
