pleasant and predicable
"Cafe Society" is not a bad film, though it is quite predictable. This isn't 100% bad...as many times you simply want a nice romance and this might do the trick.
In this story, Fred MacMurray plays a reporter. Through some contrived writing, he and a society lady (Madeleine Carroll) get married and they barely know each other...apparently due to a bet. Not surprisingly, things don't work out wonderfully. The husband resents the wife and her worthless rich friends and she thinks he's amazingly judgmental assuming they are all spoiled. Despite the problems, you know by the end of the film they'll somehow work through this.
No major surprises...nothing great either. Just a time-passer featuring a couple good actors.
