Critic Reviews for Every Girl Should Be Married

All Critics (1)

A cutesy lightweight romantic comedy with a crass sitcom premise that should make one cringe.

Audience Reviews for Every Girl Should Be Married


Cute comedy would have been much better without the annoying Betsy Blair in the lead. Her over eager delivery and puerile ways are hard to take. Diana Lynn, who should have had the lead, is wasted as Betsy's best friend.

A girl schemes to get Grant to marry her, if only love were so simple. Anyway, I enjoyed this movie, it was funny, and I love Grant too.
