I found this very entertaining. These two fight for custody of their dog when they decide to get a divorce. Quick witted and fun to watch Cary Grant and Irene Dunne go at each other.

I loved this romantic comedy with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. They have a good marriage but suddenly fail to trust each other. Divorce allows them new partners but each thwarts the others relationship. Fun from an old classic.
