Movie Info

Critic Reviews for Wedding Present

All Critics (3)

A newspaper picture, which to old moviegoers tells most of the story.

...ultimately wears the viewer down with its freneticism.

December 7, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A segunda parceria entre Bennett e Grant no mesmo ano (e a última de suas carreiras) é obviamente superior à primeira (Olhos Castanhos), mas, embora Grant esteja divertidíssimo, Bennett se apaga diante do colega.

Audience Reviews for Wedding Present

Better than their other co-starring film "Big Brown Eyes" but still a minor film it is a shame Cary Grant and Joan Bennett never had a chance to act together again in a more worthy script their chemistry is great. Goofy film plays like a warm up for His Girl Friday.

I loved this romantic comedy, it's got Grant and Bennett, and they're great. A really nice story.
