    You might be prepared for a charming screwball romcom, you might even be prepared for some fantastic class politics, but let me tell you, NOTHING will prepare you for Cary Grant doing several somersaults

    Perhaps cinema’s only masterwork.

    I read that Spielberg still considers this his worst film, which shows how badly someone can understand their own work and also would be patently untrue as long as both 1941 and War Horse exist. But this is a great film, and even weird and schmaltzy Spielberg is still better than a hundred other directors’ best. 

    And that score, by god.
