An inspired piece of casting brought Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn together. This is a comedy, a love story, and a tale of adventure, and it is one of the most charming and entertaining movies ever made.
A slick job of movie hoodwinking with a thoroughly implausible romance, set in a frame of wild adventure that is as whopping as its tale of off-beat love. And the main tone and character of it are in the area of the well-disguised spoof...Mr. Huston merits credit for putting this fantastic tale on a level of sly, polite kidding and generally keeping it there, while going about the happy business of engineering excitement and visual thrills.
So much fun. Inspired casting of Bogart and Hepburn, super funny comedy, thrilling adventure, heart tugging romance, eye filling photography all add up to total wow. I've seen this **** dozens of times, never fails to entertain. Good times.
Maybe this movie was a great one in the 50s, but today so many things are outdated. The story is a bit unrealistic, some dialogues were too long, some scenes looks very cheap, the humour didnt catch me. The acting was good
