Fantastically funny duo that set the standard of comedic timing! A must have for all Grant/Dunn fans!

Cary Grant and Irene Dunne made I think about three movies together. My favorite is My Favorite Wife but my second favorite is The Awful Truth and I think it is very amusing and I loved the witty dalogue. Grant and Dunne had great chemistry together!

A light and fluffy way to spend a couple of hours. A combination of wit and slapstick, the film appeals to the funny bone.

If you are a fan of Carey Grant and/or Irene Dunne you should enjoy this movie. They play a married couple who break up and meet and date other people but realize they really want to be together. My favorite part is when Irene crashes a family get together which Carey's snooty girlfriend is having. Irene pretends to be Carey's sister. The high class family is shocked and appalled at Carey's "sister" who is flashy, outspoken and in their view LOW class. She talks non-stop, drinks like a fish and then entertains them with a musical number called "Gone With The Wind". She explains to them that when she does it at the club her dress blows up on the chorus! Meanwhile Carey goes from being upset to trying not to laugh and of course they wind up back together in the end. I have always loved Irene Dunne. She was one of the best actresses of her generation.

Of course, I'm biased, Cary Grant and Irene Dunne are my favorite Hollywood pairing. All that aside, this is one of their best, either together or separate. It retains its ability to make one laugh out loud even after 6 decades.
