Obviously hampered by the strict censorship that existed at the time of its making, Guest Wife none the less is a cheeky little comedy that boasts fun acting and a safe and solid script.. Tho referred to as a screwball comedy in some quarters, I feel that doesn't quite do the film any favours. Yes the gags are breezy enough, but they are hardly of the whirlwind scattergun variety. The interplay between the wonderful Colbert and the charming Ameche is spot on, even if the heavy cloud of censorship tone downs stops the material from being fully realised into a classic comedy must see. There's an itch about just who we are supposed to root for since Chris is a nice guy and Mary clearly loves him, and of course Joe is a bit of a cad when one considers his deception. Yet we are in the company of Mary and Joe for the most part, which although it be a fake marriage, it's a nice coupling. So either way come the end some viewers will be left disappointed.
Safe and tidy, with the film as a whole more likely to leave you with a smile more than a beaming grin. 6.5/10
around on Don Ameche!!

I love Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche. So for me this was a no brainer. Just a light hearted comedy.Published 17 months ago by Jean A.
This was a movie I found among the Miss Colbert collections. I think she was a superb actress. This movie is an older one of hers but still fun to watch. Read morePublished 20 months ago by LadyGrk
I am a big fan of Claudette Colbert, and I have most of her movies on DVD. This is a screwball comedy, but not one of her best. Read morePublished 20 months ago by N Spivey
