The Philadelphia Story is a terribly witty and charming classic romantic comedy directed by George Cukor has a mass of memorable and clever lines, excellent costume design and saved Katherine Hepburn's career.
She, James Stewart, and Cary Grant, along with everyone else in this film are flawless. This is the kind of movie that they are talking about when they say “they just don't make them like they used to”. I can scarcly imagine a romantic comedy today with dialogue this sparkling … just look at what Ebert had to say of one of our most recent romantic comedies Failure to Launch:
“Oh, what stupid people these are. Stupid to do what they do, say what they say, think what they think, and get bitten by a chipmunk, a dolphin, a lizard and a mockingbird.”
Instead of wating your time in the new release section, pick up this timeless gem. It will not dissapoint.
