I figured that this was another movie from the late thirties that's supposed to be a comedy, but it's just kinda "witty" without having any laugh-out-loud scenes. I decided to watch it anyway.
How wrong I was. Not that I have anything against "witty" movies, but this movie put me in hysterics. It was very very funny. Ginger Rogers proves that she can make a good movie without Fred Astaire. The entire cast is excellent. Rent this movie for a lot of laughs.
