George Stevens's plodding, straitlaced direction takes much of the edge off this 1941 Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy vehicle. The premise is promising: Tracy is a rumpled sportswriter, Hepburn is a world-famous political columnist, and the opposites duly attract. But Stevens lacks the courage to make much of the conflict; the film ends with an embarrassing sequence in which Hepburn is tamed and installed in the kitchen. Very much below George Cukor's work with the Tracy-Hepburn mythos in Adam's Rib; Ring Lardner Jr. and Michael Kanin wrote the Oscar-winning script. 112 min.
