Goofs

When Charles and Ruth are in the kitchen (in the scene where Ruth burns her hand on the scorched casserole dish, which she had just removed from the oven), feeling a bit amorous, Ruth suggests they move their davenport beds back together. This was a moot suggestion. In a previous scene, the twin beds are already pushed back together. See more »

Not great, but still worth watching
16 March 2021 | by Oeuvre_KlikaSee all my reviews

I have never seen the original play or movie, so I'm not making a comparison. I think the main problem of this movie is that it lacks in rhythm. It felt too long despite being only an hour and a half. However, I still had a good time watching it. There are some true laugh-out-loud moments and everyone gives a good comedic performance. Also, the costumes and sets are gorgeous. Apparently, there have been a lot of changes from the original story, but I thought this story was good. My rhythm issue came more from some of the dialogue and the editing, I think. You won't be wasting your time watching it, but don't expect a masterpiece.
