Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry and Lucy Warriner both do their best to ruin each other's plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Molly Lamont, she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson. Among their strategies: Jerry's court-decreed visitation rights with Mr. Smith, their pet fox terrier, and Lucy's flamboyant impersonation of Jerry's brassy "sister" before his prospective bride's scandalized family.

TCM’s Essentials Vol 2: Another 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“The first of three movies that Cary Grant and Irene Dunne made together. Few people have ever worked so well, and with such superior results, as Cary and Irene. It’s witty, infectious, and hilarious – all about a subject that isn’t. There’s nothing funny about divorce, but this may be the one exception…. It may be the best screwball comedy of them all.” - Robert Osbourne "

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"The 'Screwball Comedy' was a hugely popular movie genre of the 30s and 40s, based around the premise of warring couples who spend much of the film's runtime apparently despising each other only to inevitably reconcile in time for the final fadeout. There are several examples of Screwball Comedy that are often sited as the greatest of the genre but for me the greatest and all-out funniest of the lot is undoubtedly Leo McCarey's 'The Awful Truth', a comparatively lesser known film that is neverthe"
