    I get tired of old Hollywood movies about male scoundrels redeemed by the love of a good women when there are so few where a female scoundrel is redeemed by the love of a good man. This would have been better off keeping the cynical tone of its beginning--something like Divorce: Italian Style. 6 years 6 months ago

    Divorce Italian style is much funnier.. But I like this traditional and baroque aurea of Ernst Lubitsch movies. It's a cliche story but much better than in most Hollywood movies. 6 years 2 months ago

    It seems comical to think now that a man considers himself fit for hell for spending his life lusting after beautiful women... how far we've fallen since 1943... but Henry Van Cleve is never so bad, thanks to Don Ameche's charming performance. The hell's waiting room bookends are delightful and first hour is pacey but the latter half of the movie begins to drag as Henry becomes older and better behaved, the roster of excellent supporting characters gradually die off, and the witty script gives way to a sentimental earnestness. It was fun to discover that Henry and I share a birthday though. 6 years 1 month ago
