I'm amazed at the difference of opinion on this one. I watched it and thought it so good that I checked Yahoo to get more info and was plain flabbergasted to see one star. It's better than Adams Rib as far as I am concerned. The comedic timing is letter perfect and Shearer, Taylor and Sanders are nothing short of brilliant and in that order. The lines are witty and the insanity of love is well and tartly limned and it knew exactly when to end and how to. Cukor knew how to handle this wonderful material and kudos for him. Now I have to find out who is responsible for the clever script. Less Shakespeare (Taming of the Shew or a Midsummer Nights Dream) it's the best light comedy I can remember seeing in a while.
