No pair of comedic actors can top the pair of Grant and Dunne. Witty, somewhat dry in its humor, with sparkling performances by not only the two leads but a young Ralph Bellamy, this was one of the best of the romantic comedies of the 30s, 40s and 50s, a genre that has died out to be replaced by vapid and predictable chock flicks. The breakup of theri marriage, due to Grant's unreasoning jealousy, the awkward rebound (both choose disastrously) and the wry realization that they can only be happy with each other is filled with humor and absurdity. Wonderful.

My elderly father, who prefers to watch John Wayne westerns, really enjoys this movie. Cary Grant is delightful as always, and Irene Dunne is lovely, talented, and very funny. The supporting cast, including Ralph Bellamy, round out and enhance this humorous farce. The movie is at moments sweet, charming, surprising, and a pure joy to watch from start to finish. The image quality of the movie is quite good, too. It's a fun movie to watch, and I enjoy being able to share it with my Dad.

Wonderful movie, completely misrepresented by Columbia as being digitally mastered and remastered in high definition.
The print is dreadful - wandering back and forth, almost incessantly, from bad to worse.
Avoid this.
Hold the studios accountable.
And wait for someone to release a decent print.

The Awful Truth is one of my all-time favorite movies! It is an absolutely hilarious screwball comedy. Essentially, The Awful Truth is the story of Jerry (Cary Grant) and Lucy (Irene Dunne) Warriner: a rich, elegant couple that decides to get a divorce. The only problem is that they clearly still love each other. As they respectively figure this out, they do their best to sabotage each others' relationships - resulting in incredibly funny scenes.
The Awful Truth has witty dialogue in the classic screwball style, hilarious situations, and great acting. Cary Grant is wonderful as the confident and charming husband - his facial expressions and muttered comments steal scene after scene. This movie is the first one in which Grant established his extraordinary screeen persona: a handsome, intelligent, and debonair man - and still a comedian more than willing to take a few pratfalls. His inspired performance makes the film work! Irene Dunne is equally excellent as his beautiful wife. She is the perfect, cool counterpart to Grant's often frantic behavior. The supporting cast also gets full honors.
Overall, this movie is excellent, and can be watched over and over again. It is witty and hilarious: perfect for the whole family! I don't know how else to recommend this - get this movie, and enjoy a priceless screwball comedy from Hollywood's Golden Age.

screwball comedies are romantic comedies from the thirties and forties. since back then it was not possible to display all the crassness and nudity of today's films the filmmakers had to get around this while still telling a comic love story with the storyline they wanted. the viewer may find the results are more satisfying than the in-your-face approach. The Awful Truth provides very quick dialogs, and a story which remains modern today. A man and a wife who longer trust each other's fidelity decide to go theirn own ways with ridiclous results of course.

Love this movie. It is funny and Cary Grant and Irene Dunne are great. I have seen other movies with Grant Dunne in they seem to work so well with each other. Grant is funny and Irene has her own way of acting. This movie will make you laugh and happy and put you in a good mood if you have had a bad day. I can watch it over and over. If I could it would give it a 100 stars.
