Rating of

An intelligent and observant screenplay, a fine cast led by William Powell as the patriach and sensitive direction by Michael Curtiz result in a very entertaining comedy.

Rating of

A cute bit of fluff apart from how it's about how women are both hopelessly scatterbrained and incorrigibly manipulative of their husbands, whichever of the two will best aid them in the purchase of today's frippery. The sound on my copy was terrible - often I couldn't decode what was being said at all.
