Hepburn is so annoying, I too want to punch her.6 years ago
One of the funniest movies ever still holds up after 72 years!7 years ago
Really struggled with this film. I can see the appeal, the manic energy of it and the zaniness of how the story escalates, the amazing outfits, cars, houses and aesthetics, but GOD this is an irritating film. Firstly, why is Cary Grant's character at all appealing? I can see why Grant himself is, especially when he has an implausibly well paying job at which is he is terrible, why these women throw themselves at him is also something I couldn't get behind. Why have the world's most irritating dog bark all through a scene? How is constant yapping anything other than annoying? I get that its illustrating he inanity of everything else in that scene but how about not having that dog at all? Or that scene at all? Everyone in this film is frustrating, it's assumed that we can get on board with their relentless smugness and that the premise of Baby doesn't get old, which it does very quickly. The leading characters' arrogance, wanton waste of money, privilege and time was just too daft to begin with let alone built a story on. So much extraordinary talent was involved with this film, and I'm glad so many people can get something out of it and find it hilarious, but, unlike most screwballs, this was phenomenally irritating from beginning to end.11 months ago
This film was over schedule, over budget, and considered a flop when it was first released. Production was frequently delayed due to uncontrollable laughing fits between Hepburn and Grant. Hepburn struggled with her comedic performance and was coached by her co-star, vaudeville veteran Walter Catlett.9 months ago
Wow, this movie has aged incredibly well. Hysterical from start to finish; love the Major Applegate character. Hepburn is horribly annoying, but her outfits are fantastic! The limits of the audience's suspension of disbelief are challenged in this film where nonsensical arguments and high jinks run amok. I can't say I cared for Cary Grant's character either, but there is some great acting in this film!10 months ago
I saw this a few days ago for the first time in many, many years. I am visiting Belgium, so saw it with on the big screen on a very scratchy old print, with both French and Dutch subtitles! Very witty and lots of laugh-out-loud moments, although Susan is simply infernal with her seemingly-invincible gumption carries on until the moment she becomes a stereotypical whiny/dim/clingy female (yuck). Great fun, nonetheless.11 months ago
