Claudette Colbert lights up an unorthodox romantic comedy with some wonderful looks and comments, but as none of the characters act anything like real people, it suffers from a lack of the relatable humanity woven into Sturges' best works. He seemingly writes himself into a corner before coming up with a ludicrous twist ending, which is laid out in the opening credits but insufficiently foreshadowed throughout the story to really constitute a satisfying payoff.

Another Preston Sturges comedy with Joel McCrea, not as satisfying as Sullivan but enjoyable. Lots of drunk acting, which is a pet peeve of mine.

Amusing enough, with colorful characters and funny situations; another old comedy I'd call "pleasant" - definitely worth a watch, I was consistently entertained, but it doesn't offer much replay value.

Claudette Colbert was so likable I disliked disliking this movie; edited after rewatch. This was enjoyable this time and I'm not sure why I disliked it before.
