4 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie didn't do it for me. I expected much more after reading the reviews. I can't say too many positive things about it. I found the movie boring, particularly in the beginning. I also didn't like the subject matter and found most of the characters shallow. The only good thing I can say is that Carole Lombard played her role well. Along with the fact that the title did fit the lead. But I didn't find most of the characters to be likable. I also feel the male leads real romance didn't have the time to build the relationship. It was not believable. I hardly made it through the entire movie because it didn't grab my attention and I didn't find anything appealing. I hope you won't waste your time.
