Bringing Up Baby

0 Love It
One of the finest screwball comedies ever, with Grant - a dry, nervous, conventional palaeontologist - meeting up with madcap socialite Hepburn and undergoing the destruction of his career, marriage, sanity and sexual identity. The catalyst in the process is Baby, a leopard that causes chaos wherever he goes, and finally awakens Grant to the attractions of irreponsible insanity. Fast, furious and very, very funny.

Tied for the greatest screwball comedy of all time with His Girl Friday. Genius and charming!

I too hated Heburn in this and every minute of the film I pitied Cary Grant for having to put up with her. I was glad when the movie was finally over. I don't know how critics loved this. You can't have a great movie with such as disastrous female lead performance. Her small screechy voice made me want to slap her every time she uttered a word.

Yes, this is a best sample of screwball comedy, yet I didn't like this movie, and didn't laugh once; mainly because I hated Katherine's Hepburn character from the moment she opened her mouth. She looks great, but she has a grating voice that drove me crazy. Katherine's Heburn character BRINGING UP BABY should enter film history as THE MOST UNLIKABABLE FEMALE LEAD IN A COMEDY EVER MADE.
