Storyline

Former millionaire B.J. Nolan is useless with money, having lost most of his fortune on crazy schemes. His son, Kenneth, has the opposite problem thanks to good sense and a large inheritance bequeathed by his mother. In order to raise the cash for a housing project, B.J. enlists the help of young architect Virginia Travis to con the money out of Kenneth. At the same time Kenneth is being pursued by a pair of small-time hucksters and chaos results when they all end up in staying in B.J.'s house. Written by Col Needham <col@imdb.com>

Wanted to like it... didn't.
30 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why this film doesn't work. It has everything I love about screwball comedies in it, and the wonderful Joel McCrea is gorgeous.

Where does it go wrong? I'm not quite as knocked out by Preston Sturges as the rest of the world because I think he's too prone to pointlessly noisy madcap chase scenes, and more often that not his endings suck a lot, but Preston Sturges' screwballs really work (apart from the chases and the endings) and this film doesn't. The difference, then, must be script. Sturges' scripts are superb, glittering things, that you just want to eat with a spoon, and Woman Chases Man is a fairly charming film with a lifeless script.
