One of the better Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn comedies -- not so much for the screenplay by Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, which lacks the bite and sophistication of Adam's Rib, as for the relaxed and graceful interplay of the stars. Full Review
One of the season's gayest comedies. Full Review
Rating: A- -- The film doesn't have much plot but the dialogue is bright, and the roles tailor-made for stars Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. Hepburn demonstrates with physical strength what she proved in Adam's Rib with intellect, that women can be equal to men Full Review
There are far too many shots featuring real-life sports stars, but the sparring leads, and Ray's dim boxer, work superbly together under Cukor's deceptively effortless, always elegant direction. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Hepburn and Tracy at their romantic-antagonistic best!
Martha's Vineyard Times (Massachusetts)
The familiarity the two stars communicate goes far beyond the script.
Rating: 4/5 -- Another fine teaming, with great support from Aldo Ray
