For love or money?By a customer from London , 13 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]As you would expect, this is another great performane from Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. When Cary gets engaged while on holiday, little does he realise what he is letting himself in for. Only on their return does he find out the extent of his fiancees fortune and what is now expected of him. Does he give up his own dreams and follow the family business in the name of love...? Of course, nothing in life is ever straight forward as Cary finds out when he meets his fiancee's sister. What follows is great entertainment. A sharp, witty script keeps this moving along quickly as we find out if love really does conquer all.

Still brilliantBy NoIdonthaveanickname (68 reviews) , 18 Feb 2012I had forgotten I had seen this film before, but still enjoyed watching it again. Fabulous comedy spark between Hepburn and Grant that you just do not find these days.
Well worth a Sunday afternoon.
What's not to likeBy LEM (23 reviews) from Edinburgh , 01 Nov 2011Oh yes take me back to the days when everyone knew their place and had plenty of money! Perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Don't know how I missed this beforeBy LMAO (20 reviews) from Leicester , 26 Feb 2010A Grant/Hepburn film I had not heard of, how could I not have a look? Very glad I did, beautifully acted and directed, with a still relevant storyline, and dare I say it (few films make me laugh)? Very, very funny with a quick fire wit well ahead of it's time, this could definitely teach some of the new 'comedies' more than a lesson or two in taste, delivery and timing. Seriously, if you like old films anyway, and especially if you don't, give this a chance.
Only for us oldiesBy a customer from BRISTOL , 17 Mar 2009Those of us with fond memories of Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn will enjoy wallowing in this film. I loved it, but a younger audience will probably find it stilted and unreal. Shame.
