Not sure how this one got labeled a comedy, almost completely lacking in humor and what jokes there are don't fit the tone. It's an "issue" film about equal rights for women, but ends up being quite regressive. Amanda uses pretty suspect logic to defend her client and in the end, is "proven" wrong by Adam after the trial has ended.

Woman's lib theme that's really not too dated considering it was made in 1949. It's really surprising how little has changed in more than 50 years.

Embarrassingly not-dated in a lot of ways. We're still having these discussions 65 years later? Hepburn and Tracy are great, but it goes off the rails a bit the more madcap it gets.

Tracy and Hepburn have really good chemistry together even if Tracy's character is total ass-hat, and it has an awesome feminist message to it, which is still completely relevant in post-Lorena Bobbit world.

Doesn't quite find the right blend of comedy and drama. The material is too tragic to be a successful comedy with moments too silly to be a successful drama and overall not nearly self-conscious enough to be a successful dark comedy. But Hepburn and Tracy are charming as ever.

A funny, entertaining movie and with a script well ahead of its time. Some scenes, mostly due to Katharine Hepburn's character, do get a little over-the-top. But this is a comedic movie and not a lecture in gender studies. It's definitely worth a watch. (post review edit: a review by Icarus caught my attention, besides missing the point of the court case as a vehicle for comedy between the sexes, a demented statement "case of CLEAR guilt" is also used. I recommend you look up "wife battery".)

The sexual politics are more than a little dated now and having this center on an attempted murder where the woman should clearly have been found guilty was a pretty poor plot device. Still, Hepburn and Tracy are always a joy to see on screen together and carry the movie far past the limits of the mediocre narrative.

this one is a romantic comedy that fails at the comedy, but succeeds at the romance. i'm a firm believer that the tracy/hepburn duo could make a lamp shade into a decent movie, hell, this one even got me over my hate of judy holliday. this is still not the best the two made.

It is the case that Cukor did many successful adaptations, so it's nice to be able to point out a few works that were movie originals: Pat and Mike, A Double Life, and Adam's Rib. However, all three of those screenplays were by Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon. This team believed in situation, crisis, comedy, and humanity - but situation above all. They have a gem that foreshadows feminism, women in the workplace, and that crackling battle of the sexes for which Hepburn and Tracy were so suited.

Another Katharine Hepburn movie where I hate Katharine Hepburn's character. She may have good intentions, but there isn't a single thing to like about her. The songwriter character is a jerk, too. Really sympathized with Spencer Tracy here overall. This movie is pleasant enough, but rarely funny. Why was Tom Ewell so cool despite looking like such a geek?
