"The Feminine Touch" (1941)

The plot is convoluted and repetitive—two couples jealously mix and mingle— but when you’ve got four leads like Don Ameche, Rosalind Russell, Kay Francis, and Van Heflin delivering the rapid fire dialog and gags with nonchalant ease it’s lighter than air delicious. Director W.S.Van Dyke, who helmed the immensely popular ‘Thin Man’ movies, keeps the laughs coming like soap bubbles that keep popping before your eyes. You admire the sheen and before you know it, POOF!, you’re onto the next funny set-up.
