Robert Montgomery and Norma Shearer sure are sweet together. And they bicker and fight even sweeter! Got to love their (ex)-spousal abuse in this one! Reginald Denny and Una Merkel as replacement spouses are okay too in the end even if Denny lacked the charm as the rest of the cast. A comical look at love with swift dialog and equally timed reactions. Just a joy to watch this heaven and hell romance.

Shearer and Montgomery deliver a captivating performance, and the electricity between them is intoxicating.

Shearer and Montgomery have chemistry, but their performances are much too stagy and exaggerated for the movies--and this is, after all, the movies. They project a certain brittle elegance, but lack the true sophistication that this the play demands. Besides, this is a very British play, and I don't really think it works--or could work--with a couple of Americans.

Probably worked better as a play. A little too hectic at times.
