The film in which Brackett and Wilder supposedly perfected the Hollywood ploy of 'meeting cute' with a Riviera department store scene where Coop wants to buy pyjama tops and Colbert the bottoms. Otherwise a sporadically funny, somewhat contrived comedy, with Lubitsch softening the script's acidity (thereby giving the wrong sort of discomfort to the closing scenes in a lunatic asylum), and Cooper miscast as a playboy millionaire who has divorced seven wives and has a comeuppance coming up from the eighth.
