this film tries VERY VERY VERY hard,...
While I am not a huge fan of the films Cary Grant made with his wife at the time, Betsy Drake, this still is a cute little time-passer. It's full of nice little moments but is pretty inconsequential. In other words, its the type of film I wouldn't rush out to buy but if it's coming on TV, I might give it a try. Although I score it a 7, I was really torn between giving it a 6 or a 7. I wish I could give it a 6.5! Ms. Drake certainly has a lot of energy in this film and in many ways its more her film than Cary's. She's pretty good at light comedy but the plot they give her seems a bit contrived and almost like a TV movie instead of a major motion picture. In the film, she's decided it's time to get married and looks for the perfect man. She sees that Cary is good-looking, a successful doctor and a decent guy, so without knowing anything else about him, she's 100% sure he's the one! Cary isn't as sure and has every reason to believe, based on her actions, that she's a total nut! Plus, he has no interest in marrying, so Drake really has her work cut out for her.
It's cute, watchable and that's really about it.
