"So far, I found combination of crime and comedy to be a pleasant movie experience. "It's a Wonderful World" fits into definition... with some smaller issues.

" November 16th I was beginning to question if there remained any Jimmy Stewart gems for me to discover, making this film a pleasant surprise. The exposition at the beginning and end of the film regarding a murder case which had me confused from the very beginning prevents me from giving this movie a higher score, but the chemistry Stewart and Claudette Colbert made the film a joy to watch, with this being the most I've enjoyed a Colbert performance to date."
