Mae West turned in a wonderful performance in this one. This movie starts out well but once Cary Grant appears (roughly 1/2 way through) this movie really becomes outstanding. The plot is a simple one that basically boils down to all men in the film chasing after the Mae West character. The courtroom scene toward the end was easily the best scene of the film. Mae West at her absolute best.
