The film feels surprisingly gloomy and dull for a comedy. The still camera and long-ish takes make it seem a lot longer and duller than a comedy should be. Most of the jokes fall flat, some are amusing for a couple seconds, but then they drag on too long and are repeated too often that it becomes boring. A predictable story, many contrived scenes and an unbelievable romance don't help. It's not really a bad film, just not a very good one. It passes the time ok, but is forgettable.

A fun romcom with some very good gags, and no terrible ones that I can recall. There's some great little moments, some of them toying with the production code, and the movie manages to generate quite a lot of heat for the time. My only complaint is that it feels a bit long. The last few scenes should be a madcap flurry of activity, instead they seem to drag on sluggishly. It's not a dealbreaker though, and overall it's a charming and enjoyable experience thanks to Arthur, McCrea and Coburn.

As artificial as usual for these old Hollywood romcoms, but less garish and cuter than most of them.

Original Pecado estreava há 80 anos nos EUA. Me surpreende esse filme não ser mais famoso do que é, todo mundo sabe que o Stevens é brilhante, mas aqui ele se superou com todos os artifícios possíveis para driblar o código Hays, as cenas da escada e depois da cama em split screen são magnificentes. Nossa, se tornou uma das minhas comédias favoritas dos anos 40. RARBG.

Cute as a button and damn funny too. Jean Arthur is great but the whole goes to another level when Joel McCrea enters the picture. Only fault is that the ending is a little contrived but it's all good enough that it hardly matters.
