pretty safe to say..the best story the two leads ever did together.
- Michael Whitty
An intelligent and funny look at a husband and wife lawyer situation and this time they are representing different sides in court. Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn made several films together but this one had more bite to it. The humor and the charm are there from these pros whether in court opposing each other and then at home. These two great actors made the most of this one and George Cukor put them through their paces well.
Tracy and Hepburn were robbed by the Academy
Despite their multiple nominations and wins, Tracy and Hepburn were robbed that year. Cannot for the life of me understand how the Academy overlooked their wonderful performances that year.
- Dashiell Barnes
The best film pairing of Hepburn & Tracy. As usual their chemistry shines through every scene, Holliday is outstanding in her debut. The Oscar-nominated screenplay is humurous & romantic, creating the original battle of the sexes movie, albeit with a few dull moments. The last great romantic-comedy of the 40's. I give it a 4.5/5.
Adam's Rib (1949)
- Jay Higgins
The chemistry between Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy is absolutely remarkable and their pairings are among the best ever on the screen. And Adam's Rib is one of their best. The supporting cast is stellar. Jean Hagen and Judy Holliday are incredibly good. Extremely well written, witty dialogue, expertly directed by George Cukor. A true classic.
love between the sprockets
Hepburn and Tracy's off screen affections inform this entire project with a chemistry that has only been matched occasionally on screen. A great comedy, forward looking at its time. Supporting players are uniformly topnotch. Judy Holiday is always a pleasure to watch. Original in body language and voicings, see anything she did in her short career for a primer in comedy performance.If you haven't seen this film, do yourself a favor. If you have, relish it again.
classy movie and FUNNY!
- Caren Christensen
One of Hepburn and Tracy's best! The chemistry and play between them in court or at home is priceless! I have seen this movie several times and never get bored. Tom Ewell and Judy Holliday are just as entertaining. The scene in the beginning with Judy and how to "handle" the gun is also hilarious. I laugh until I cry every time I see it. It is quite entertaining watching the loving touches between Hepburn and Tracy under the table in the courtroom and then the sparring between them at home. I highly recommend this movie. Great, great filmmaking! Caren C.
