| With a cast like this, I expected much more.
The script for "Bride for Sale" isn't particularly good, and it's a shame as it wastes a decent cast.

When the story begins, a very grouchy boss brings in a retired military guy to whip the office into shape. What he doesn't realize is that the military guy is a gal! Nora (Claudette Colbert) turns out to be fantastic for the company...but the boss (George Brent) is shocked when he learns she's looking to get married and settle into the life of a housewife...and he enlists the help of a friend (Robert Young) to try to change her mind.

This film simply tries too hard at times. The scenes with Colbert, Young and the fish is particularly so. Add a few overdone scenes to the confusing plot and you've got a disappointment for most viewers. Not a terrible film but it sure as heck should have been better...and funnier.
