Rival newspaper reporters have stormy romance...
19 May 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

There isn't anything in THERE GOES MY GIRL that hasn't been done before in screwball comedies of the '30s and '40s. This has the feisty ANN SOTHERN playing a game of oneupmanship with would be hubby GENE RAYMOND, both of them cheated out of getting married by their scheming boss RICHARD LANE.

The story is absurd, the plot contrivances are everywhere, and it's just a matter of time before Sothern and Raymond are able to tie the knot by using physical restraint on Lane to keep him from interfering with their nuptial ceremony.

It's old hat stuff given a little too much zest from pert ANN SOTHERN, at her feistiest, and GENE RAYMOND, trying hard to be a comedian but not exactly a master of disguises. His French accent is a disgrace.

Newspaper stories were quite the fad in the '30s and this is just another one of those fast paced comedies that makes absolutely no sense when you stop to think about it. Other stars, like Rosalind Russell, Jean Arthur, Claudette Colbert, Irene Dunne and even Bette Davis, did similar screwball newspaper stories but with much better scripts.
