This is one of the best screwball comedies ever made and Cary Grant, always at his best in comedic roles, just excels. It also leads to some interesting conversations with others in real life. What would you do? The fact that Grant and Dunne have two children together in the film lends itself to able reasoning as to why they belong together at the end. I've always liked this film. It's old-fashioned, funny and just darned good!
Funny and Romantic
Grant and Dunne are one of my favorite silver screen couples making this one of my very favorite romantic comedies.

For a similar movie, with the sexes reversed, watch "Too Many Husbands" starring Jean Arthur, Fred MacMurray, and Melvyn Douglas. It is a funnier, far wittier film.
Um grande filme. Uma comédia hilariante, divertida que faz vc ficar sentado no sofá assistindo Cary Grant e Irene juntos. Eles tinhas uma química perfeita. E o filme é muito bom. Perfeito para quem gosta de comédias e um dos meus filmes favoritos.
My Favorite Wife (1940)
- James Higgins
100/100. The is one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time, everything comes together perfectly - direction, screenplay, score, cinematography and the cast, and what a terrific cast. Irene Dunne and Cary grant are excellent, the supporting cast is outstanding, especially Gail Patrick, Granville Bates and Donald MacBride. Randolph Scott is well cast. Nominated for three Oscars, original screenplay, original music score and for art direction. There are so many memorable scenes and it is often laugh out loud funny. A great and unforgettable classic.
This has been one of my favorite movies since I was a child - I'll never forget the scene where Nicky (Grant) spots Ellen (Dunne) in the lobby of the lodge as the door to the elevator closes on him -remember, he thinks she's been dead for seven years. It's a classic moment! The story is hilarious and just incredulous enough to be almost believable. The supporting cast is awesome, especially Randolph Scott as the handsome and virile Stephen - and the scene where the judge is trying to sort out the facts of the story is indescribably funny. Anyone who enjoys the classic romantic comedies of the golden age of cinema will love this movie!
This movie opened the doors to my TCM experience. i could watch the movie so many times that It would ware out before im done with it. Love it. Want it!
Quintessential romantic comedy
- Pat huyett
One of the best sophisticated/screwball comedies ever made, this is Cary Grant at his suave best. Dunne is hilarious, gorgeous and at the heighth of her career. The repartee between the two crackles and and is fun to watch. Get a load of Dunne's exquisite sunburst applique dress--they don't make costumes like that anymore. The attempted remake in 1962 would have been Marilyn Monroe's last movie, but the project was never finished, the film shelved.
Hilarious and Endearing
Grant and Dunne are incredible. This is a comedy I think anyone could relate to.
