I love Cary Grant and that's the only reason I kept watching this movie. It felt like it was about four hours long.
While the story itself was pretty solid, the execution was very poor. Grant's accent wasn't consistent at all (it was there, and then gone, then Irish, then English, then gone again, etc.) and neither he nor his wife appeared to age (despite the movie taking place over 20 years). I also felt some of the major characters (like his brother-in-law) were too one dimensional.
I'm a huge classic movie buff (and Cary Grant buff) so I'm glad I watched the movie, but it's not on my list to watch again. Unless I have insomnia.
