A funny Claudette Colbert comedy
14 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie once on TV and have not forgotten it. It was entertaining with the strained relationship of Colbert and Fred McMurray and the back and forth snipping that the old comedies were so famous for. Let's face it, these two just have great chemistry together and are masters at that kind of domestic comedy. The honeymoon with the kids at the Grand Canyon is everyone's nightmare and you have to laugh at their plight with the honeymoon sabotaged by those out of control kids. What I loved so much were the views of the Lodge at the South Rim and just the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon from a time lost forever. Some of the shots are amazing. If this one ever came out on DVD I would buy it because it is fun light hearted entertainment done only as these two know how to do it.
