Bringing Up Baby review

Starts of strong then dwindles towards mediocrity towards the unbelievable conclusion. A stressed paleontologist David Huxley (Cary Grant) is worried about building a skeleton of a Brontosaurus and getting married the next day. he accidentally bumps into a fun talkative Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) at a golf course. So many questionable acts despite a few comedic scenes such as: whatever happened to his fiance? Does one day make you forget marriage and fall for a girl who gives you excitement? As mentioned in previous reviews, it shows its dated and the conclusion just flabbergasting. The animals seems to be the real stars instead of the screenplay and direction despite the wonderful efforts of its talented leads. Bringing Up Baby maybe be an old film rather than a "classic" H...

"Bringing Up Baby" by Yojimbo

An eccentric heiress takes a shine to a stuffy paleontologist and then inadvertently reduces his life to chaos in her attempt to keep him from marrying another woman.

It's really just a lot of falling over, running around and walking in and out of rooms while various onlookers are frightened by the big cat and no-one ever believing the unlikely explanations proffered for the various ridiculous situations. Cary Grant once more shows hi...

Bringing Up Baby

I don't like Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, or screwball comedies. So...I guess I should have seen this one coming. This movie is on right now. There are about 20 minutes left. I don't need to finish it before I write the review, I already hate it. I watched it because it's on all the lists, and three people I trust have told me how much I need to see it. Not until the Netflix actually arrived did Jonathan say, "I think you aren't going to like this movie." He was right.

Everyone is so annoying! EVERYTHING is so annoying. I want to kill all the characters, except Baby the Leopard. This is the opposite of my sense of humor. I'd rather watch Laurel and Hardy carry a piano up some stairs.

This movie would have been better with Audrey Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart, by the way. I believe C...
