Sex and the Single Girl

An entertaining blast of stale air. There’s one for the front of the DVD!   Look, sex farces are harder to successfully complete than they may appear. Rock Hudson and Doris Day made it appear effortless and charming together (and separately) in films like Pillow Talk, but there’s real hard work underneath that shiny artifice. Cary Grant, the penultimate performer in romantic comedies, coul... read more

Cary Grant, the penultimate performer in romantic comedies, could play any of the male parts in this film with his eyes closed and backwards at any point in his career, but that would belie the tremendous craft and care that went into making it all work.   Sex and the Single Girl has a few gripping moments of breeziness and wit, mostly found in the criminally underutilized Henry Fonda, Lauren Bacall, and Mel Ferrer, but flounders a bit when left in Tony Cur” read more
