What a lifeless film. Maybe it's because the whole concept has been done so many times since, maybe it's the script, but this comedy rarely comes alive. The performances don't shine and the jokes fall flat. From the first scene to the last, it's very hard to care whether the bickering couple divorce or get back together.

It starts off weak but it continuously builds on its strengths to provide some solid laughs and sophisticated pathos throughout the middle and a surprisingly sexy denouement at the end. On another note, this film features some of the best costuming I've ever seen in a B&W film, with almost all of Dunne's outfits being absolutely stunning to watch in motion. Solid performances throughout, overall a well-aged screwball comedy.

The Awful Truth was in no way awful, but I didn't fall in love with it. Still a delightful screwball comedy with many clever and embarrassing moments. Cary Grant's impeccable timing is probable the best quality of this comedy. Irene Dunne's playful needs make for the hilarious bits. I enjoyed the cheesy moments with the new lovers best. Ralph Bellamy's dancing and singing skills are unmatched by anyone! Joyce Compton's Marilyn Monroe moment was ace! "Sister" Dunne also had it's crazy moments!

The awful truth about this movie is, IT SUCKS!!! Alright, it doesn't suck but that WAS witty, so I had to go with it. I apologize for disparaging one of the classics of screwball comedy. Cary Grant is fantastic.

When it comes to Truths, i prefer mine Unbelievable to Awful, but this was still cute. Also, possibly the most relentlessly passive-aggressive romantic comedy ever?

Notable as the first appearance, fully formed, of the classic Cary Grant persona; debonair, witty and graceful. Dunne, whose hair and wardrobe seem to morph dizzingly from scene to scene, is a good match for him. Quite good if you can tolerate the creakiness of the screwball comedy plot devices.

It's not exactly laugh-out-loud funny, but it gets a lot of mileage out of it's situational humor. Grant and Dunne have incredible chemistry, and Dunne in general really impressed me here. There's a surprising bit of sex and cynicism sprinkled throughout which plays to both of the actors' strengths. I don't think it's much of a standout comedy, but it is a very pleasant film.
