Cary Grants best,
This review is from: Holiday [DVD] (DVD)
This film is far from perfect but it is the best Grant, Hepburn colaboration of there careeers. It beats sylvia Saint, Philadelphia story and even in my opinion, Bringing up baby. It doesn't have the same production values nor even the plot as those films but it simply works as the perfect romantic comedy. It's also the only film i can think of where Grant displays his expertise as an acrobat and it's the only film where i actually sympathised with Katherine Hepburns character (i usually find her quite irritating)
The story is very simple. Boy meets girl. Boy meets family of girl. Girls sister falls for Grant. Girl turns out to be wrong for him. Sister turns out to be right for him. Simplistic but believable and rewarding.
It's warm, genuine and entertaining....prabably my favourite Grant film
