I wanted so badly to enjoy this picture, but saccharine, hamfisted Capra was there to thwart me at every turn. Way too broad, almost none of the jokes land well. Only saving graces were occasional moments of darkness from the spinsters and Cary Grant's physical comedy.
Classic Capra comedy that has lost little of its power to entertain and tickle. A wonderful script with just the right mix of the macabre and comedy sets the bar high but the performers excel and improve it. Massey steals the show but the aunts, Teddy and Grant are all excellent. ' ...insanity doesn't just run in my family..it gallops..." Classic.
