celluloid wit

This is probably the best screwball comedy ever! The laughs are real, almost disguising its analyses of 1930s-style gender expectations, sex and marriage.

My favorite scene is when Cary Grant wears a feathery feminine bathrobe; this scene contains one of the first popular appearances of the word “gay” being used to mean something other than “extremely happy”; and it is truly... read more

A classic

Since this movie had a really solid reputation, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be one of those typical screwball comedies from the 30's but, to be honest, I have never been a huge fan of the genre. Indeed, even though the plot was supposed to be ridiculous and shouldn't be taken too seriously, I still had a hard time to care about what was going on. On t... read more

Screwball Comedy on Steroids

7 years ago at Oct 13 0:13
I make it no secret that screwball comedy is my favourite genre of film. I can never get tired of these films; to me, this is the most un-boring genre ever. Whenever I’m watching a great screwball comedy I’m on cloud 9 and when it’s over I’m always left wanting more. Sometimes I wish my life was a screwball comedy. Bringing Up Baby is the quintessential daffy dame/stuffy gentleman movie (... read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2020: May (46 movies items)

"First viewing - May 20th While I generally enjoy screwball comedies as well as both Hepburn and Grant, I couldn't quite find my way into this one. I found the characters grating at times and eventually started to wish it'd wrap it up already. Unsure whether I just wasn't in the mood for it or it's just not to my taste. Perhaps I'll try again down the road, but I'm not too enthusiastic about doing so."

gypsyflair posted a review 2 years, 3 months ago

“In his glorious Bringing Up Baby, Howard Hawks ratchets screwball comedy up to its tautest and springiest level. In clumsier hands, screwball all too often gallops into the frenetic, fraying the nerves; Hawks maintains a presto pace, but never lets the mixups and misunderstandings grow implausible he just glides serenely to something else. (And he makes it look easy, which it isn't.)” read more
