Cary Grant gets wildly jealous when he finds out his wife (Irene Dunne) spent the night with her handsome piano teacher. Dunne thinks he ought to trust her. The two impulsively divorce, meet other people, and (in true screwball comedy fashion) go to great lengths to sabotage the other’s romance. Like any great screwball comedy, the outlandishness and zany behavior requires perfect comedic timing and a lightness that will likely always be underrated when it comes to acting. Grant is the best at what he does, and Dunne is fantastic. Watching the two one up each other until they come to the inevitable conclusion, that they’re really still in love, is movie bliss.
