Rogers on Her Way Up
15 August 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Mildly amusing little pre-Code comedy. The premise is promising—a guy (Foster) and a girl (Rogers) share an upstairs flat at different times of day, and so they never meet, at least as co-tenants. But they do meet casually without knowing the other person is the one sharing the flat. The thing is that as co-tenants they've developed a dislike for one another, but as acquaintances, they're becoming romantically involved. So what will happen when each finds out who the other person really is. Sounds complicated, but the premise does set up a lot of clever comedic possibilities, especially when the archly befuddled Robert Benchley is added to the mix.

The movie has its amusing parts, yet doesn't rise to a memorable level. The trouble is that Foster (Jack) has neither the charisma nor the comedic talent needed to match the scintillating Rogers (Mary). At the same time, director Seiter fails to provide the bounce a good comedy needs. And in a supporting role the middle-age Crews (Elise) unfortunately over-acts in theatrically unfunny fashion. Thus it's left to the incomparable Rogers to carry the movie, which she does while making the entire package worth watching. All in all, the result amounts to an okay programmer, but one that unfortunately doesn't live up to potential.
