My Favorite Wife ★★★★½

Nick: “The moment I saw you I knew....”
Ellen: “I bet you say that to all your wives.”

It’s official...Irene Dunne and Cary Grant never made a bad film together. I’ve now seen all three of their films! They both have such impeccable comedic timing on their own, but when you bring them together....*chef’s kiss*. When Irene gives him a “sisterly” kiss and then slaps him, I lost it 🤣🤣 And Cary has this confused look on his face throughout the film and it’s just so adorable. And the ending is absolutely priceless!! I’d say that my favorite Dunne+Grant films in order are Penny Serenade, My Favorite Wife, and The Awful Truth, but they are all throughly enjoyable and true classics.
