"A great many funny things happen... maneuvered, to some extent, by Mr. Smith."
|With Ralph Bellamy and Irene Dunne.|
The Awful Truth - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"The Awful Truth is one of those mile-a-minute comedies which never makes sense but which makes you giggle outrageously. At the beginning Irene Dunne and Cary Grant are a young married couple on the verge of divorce; but they soon prove to be a couple of cut-ups who delight in bedeviling each other. A great many funny things happen, most of which are maneuvered, to some extent, by Mr. Smith. He is the biggest bone of contention. Mr. Smith is a Scottish terrier.
The dialogue is snappy, the action fast, and often furious, and Irene Dunne proves herself better as a comedienne than as the beautiful-but-dignified star she once was.
