    It starts off not very funny, but it gets better towards the end. One thing I loved: spoiler. One thing I didn't quite understand: did Adam know spoiler? Overall, a decent movie, it shouldn't really offend either sex, and should somewhat please both. 6 years 6 months ago

    I really like the Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy film pairing. It's antagonistic, but wise and playful too. In Adam's Rib, they play a married couple, lawyers both, who get involved in the same case - one on each side - and put their marriage at risk in the process. It also features David Wayne as the smart-ass neighbor I want to slap real hard. Anyway, while the stars have a lot of charm and a believable relationship, I don't know if I entirely believe the court case. Hepburn's defense attorney tries to make it about equal rights for women, but I'm not sure she's helping her client with that line of reasoning. The film has a certain edge because the 1950s had terrible sexual politics (not between the leads, but between the clients), which I see as a feature, not a bug, but its feminist agenda is better sold by Hepburn and Tracy's honesty-in-conflict than it is by the odd legal arguments. 2 months 1 week ago
