| A Timeless message
"You're wrecking your life with logic," says Claudette Colbert's father William Collier in the romantic comedy The Bride Comes Home. If you agree with that sentiment, you'll like this movie. If, like me, that statement gets under your skin and makes you never want to be friends with whoever said it, you won't like this movie.

The beautiful Claudette has an admirer in Robert Young, but because he's too nice, supportive, and faithful, she doesn't return his feelings. He gives her a job even though she's wholly unqualified, and when her new boss Fred MacMurray criticizes her and tries to make her working environment so awful she'll quit, she falls for him. The movie is not unique, as you can find the same message in The Ugly Truth, made 75 years later. If someone drives you crazy and you argue with him constantly and you have nothing in common, but you're physically attracted to him, pick him over everyone else. Fred and Claudette are obviously unsuited, and Bob is a dream. He promises never to argue with her, and when he keeps his word, she whines and says, "Why won't you argue? Why won't you do anything besides grin and sing?"
