Remake of McCarey's own Love Affair of 1939, with Grant and Kerr taking over from Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne in this comedy drama about a shipboard romance between a wealthy playboy and an ex-chanteuse. Entertaining enough while the action's still afloat, the plot later gets bogged down in soapy clichés when the characters debark in New York, agreeing to separate and test their love before they marry. Boyer's romantic gravity is much missed in the second half.
