Director: Preston Sturges
Original Release: 1941
Choice: My Wife's
My Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5
The narration of the trailer is a bit, um, dated. You'll see what I mean if you watch. Fans of the sitcom My Three Sons will recognize William Demarest, aka Uncle Charley.
The movie defies many of the conventions of Hollywood romantic comedies. The two principals are rarely if ever on equal footing, with Jean nearly always in control. The script pushes the limit of the Hays film code in place at the time and was, in fact, initially rejected by the censors before revisions. It's a fun movie and certainly well worth your time if you're in the mood for a clever romp.
