Unsuspecting widower Cary Grant marries Gail Patrick, but runs into trouble when wife number one, Irene Dunne, shows up for the honeymoon. Garson Kanin directed this late, trivial screwball comedy (1940), and while it's pleasant enough, the freshness is definitely off the bloom. As always with Kanin, the fun is compromised by the faint sound of heavy breathing coming from somewhere off camera. Leo McCarey produced it and had a hand in the script; it seems safe to say that its more sparkling qualities come from him, passed down from his far superior The Awful Truth (made three years before with much the same cast). 88 min.
