Newt's movie review

It's terrifically funny and deserves a look. Both Hepburn and Grant pull out all the stops in their use of physical humour as well their truly amazing comedic talent and sense of timing. Hepburn is stunning, as always, and should be commended for her ability to talk over absolutely everyone else. The movie itself isn't all that great, but the individual elements are, such as Hawks' excellent directing.
