An enjoyable little screwball comedy.
20 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Woman Chases Man" is a very pleasant little comedy starring Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea. It begins when Virginia (Hopkins) approaches B.J. Nolan (Charles Winninger) for a job as an architect. He is VERY impressed with her designs but cannot help her--his son, Kenneth (McCrea) controls the family fortune and won't let him have much at all since he's known for throwing away money. So, Virginia comes up with a screwy idea--that B.J. should hide and they'll pretend that he's in Chicago on some big business deal and she'll entertain Kenneth when he arrives with his friends. However, things don't go well at all at first, as the friends Virginia has hired to pretend to be servants are idiots. Why did she hire them? Because B.J. has squandered the money Kenneth allotted him. It sounds very complicated--but turns out to be a decent little romantic screwball comedy. While I am not a huge fan of Hopkins, in this sort of film she seemed to be in her element. Cute and worth seeing. My only two complaints are small: sometimes the actors talk too fast and I HATE the fainting woman cliché--and this film uses it several times.
