Reviews & Summaries
The movie is humorous, though less crazy than Bringing Up Baby, with Grant's character finding himself still in love with Hepburn's although she is scheduled to be married to another man within a couple of days. Add to that a couple of reporters from the a nosey celebrity magazine, and it is not surprising that many things go awry before the date of the wedding.
Grant is humorous, Stewart is hilarious and Hepburn is the heroine, and all together they make for a wonderfully classic movie.
