This movie blazed the trail for the greatest romantic comedies in cinema, including "His Girl Friday," "Annie Hall," "When Harry Met Sally...," and "500 Days of Summer."

The big question raised by this movie is, how does one cross the country on a Greyhound bus and still keep her make-up so perfect?

This 30's classic set the standard for the romantic comedy genre, and few have matched it since. It entertains with smart comedy and delightful performances. The 'opposites-attract' relationship works flawlessly and never once feels 'hokey'.

Still delightful. The guy and the girl get each other no matter what, or because of it.

There are two things that hold this brilliant comedy together - the charisma and charm of Gable and Colbert, and the light-hearted and quick pace with which the film moves. This was an early exploration of screwball comedy and it is witty and never boring.

Romantic comedies today owe so much to this movie. It amazed me that they were able to get away with so much innuendo in the 30s. The Wall of Jericho was perfection.

An actually splendid old style comedy, that is well done and well made. I thought it was thoroughly charming and enjoyable to watch from beginning to end. Yes it has some old movie mannerisms such as it raps up very quickly but it really holds up for the most part.

Amazing, funny, and the first movie that cleaned up at the Academy Awards big-time. Go Frank Capra!

This is one of the old masterpieces that helped me to realize that everything was done before, and better. Refreshing love comedy, with nicest acting and characters and funny and sweet momments. Most comediants of today should have this one on the desk before start to write most of the crap they do.
