"...a new high in factual distortion."
|With Joan Bennett.|
Wedding Present - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Newspaper work has taken it on the nose from the cinema on more than one occasion this season, but Wedding Present reaches a new high in factual distortion. We do not wish to destroy the 'movie' myth about journalism, but we suggest that the situations of this photo-play are implausible, dissociated, undramatic, preposterous and dreary. The film is not fortunate in its principals. Cary Grant plays the crazy reporter turned editor in a lackadaisical manner, mouthing most of his lines and acting more like a dramatic caricature than a character. If he is not walking through his lines in this production, we never saw that feat accomplished. Joan Bennett, for her part, does little to stay the complete demoralization of the plot."
