A Fine Romantic Comedy Dear to My Heart!
27 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Geraldene Page was always one of my favorite actresses. She was exceptionally good as she posessed a broad spectrum of insight into the characters that she portrayed. She was one of the few actresses who could play almost any given part in any genre. Here she is teamed with the very talented Glenn Ford in a light-hearted romantic comedy where they play off of each other brilliantly. The directing is fabulous and so is the story, even though some may find it a bit slow. I think it is worth watching more than once. One of the most hilarious scenes in the film is when Miss Page and Mr. Ford are in one of the hotel hallways deciding exactly what the other guests are like and 'supposedly how they live' as well. I like this movie because it makes me feel good! Angela Lansbury is excellent also, in her 'barely more than a cameo appearance' as she ignites the fire that makes the story work! A definite 10 in my book. Watch this gem!
