With a far-fetched and often silly story, "Lost Honeymoon" is only mildly entertaining, and that mainly because of some decent performances by a mostly good cast. The romantic comedy story itself doesn't work very well.
Franchot Tone stars as a successful American architect who one day is confronted by an Englishwoman with two children, who claims to have married him when he served in England during World War II. The architect doesn't remember anything about it. Both the architect and the woman have secrets of their own, leading to an initially complicated, then rather silly, situation. While at times mildly entertaining, the story gets completely predictable very quickly, and is never very believable.
The only thing that keeps the movie from being a total loss is that the cast does a mostly acceptable job with some ridiculous characters. They do make you care a little bit about the characters, even though they are not very credible. Tone, in particular, does as well as anyone could with his situation. But this movie would only be of any real interest to those who enjoy all romantic comedies regardless of quality.
