My Favorite Wife

Nick Arden (Cary Grant):"The moment I saw you I knew..."
Ellen Wagstaff Arden (Irene Dunne):"I bet you say that to all your wives."

Ahhh...saw My Favorite Wife last night and loved it. *sigh* What can I say I love Cary Grant in that romantic comedy lead and I think he has great chemistry with Irene Dunne. Saw them together in The Awful Truth and loved them together so I figured I'd enjoy this movie too! Wasn't disappointed! :) This blurb from pretty much sums it up for me:

"The two stars are so adept at farce, and so effortless in conveying their characters' mutual affection, that the movie triumphs over the whopper of a plot device."

I know I've said it before but all the movies I have seen Cary Grant always seems to have great chemistry with his leading lady -- Ms. Dunne, Kate Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Deborah Kerr, Myrna Loy....Blows my mind. Now I haven't seen all his movies so I'm sure there's gotta be one instance where it didn't work out...but I haven't seen it yet! ;)
