This romantic comedy is so much more than that. It was written for Katherine Hepburn and after playing it on stage she asked Cary Grant (who had starred with her in Bringing Up Baby, Hepburn's last movie that made her box office poison years before) to star with her.

Katherine Hepburn is great in this. She has the character down pat. She's cold and distant even while being hurt and ... read more

"I'm going crazy. I'm standing here solidly on my own two hands and going crazy."

The Philadelphia Story is a classic, enchanting romantic comedy that has gone down in history as one of the much-loved romantic comedies of all time.

" The film's story is charming and entertaining, though not often laugh-out-loud funny. Katherine Hepburn was outstanding, James Stewart had some great moments, but I wouldn't say it's his best. Disappointing ending for me."

" The only thing that really bothered me about the film is that it felt too short and too rushed but a film I'm sure to watch again in the future."

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"One of the funniest opening sequences in film history, the extended, dialogue-less fight between C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant) and Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn) when he grabs and palms her face and forcefully pushes her through the doorway; and the scene of a moonlight rendezvous between tipsy heiress/bride-to-be Tracy and tabloid reporter Mike Connor (James Stewart) - after some unexpected and melodramatic kissing, she exclaims softly: "Golly", then takes a breath and kisses him a second time"
