Directed by George Cukor
This is an awesome movie. Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy have some of the best chemistry in all of cinema; you can tell they not only love each other but really like each other as well.
You can tell that this is going to be cooky film just by this brief synopsis: two lawyers represent different sides in a murder trial…and they are married!?!?!
This is an outstanding movie for a number of reasons. First of all, the fact that there is a smart female lawyer is pretty progressive, considering all the women in these movies recently have been sexy troublemakers. Did I just say sexy troublemakers? Maybe it is getting a little too late at night to be writing this.
Anyway, the acting is great of course and the dialogue is smart. There is also a great song in it called "Farewell Amanda". Little known fact: I inspired that song. Well, that is actually speculation but I am sure I am right.
One of the best romantic comedies of all time. This review would be a lot more thoughtful if I wasn't already asleep.
Ranked #7 in AFI's top romantic comedies of all time.
Based on real life couple William and Dorothy Whitney.
