It was my first screwball comedy when I was a kid and it is a different take on the genre with tackling the theme what happens after 5 years of marriage. I still find the fist half utterly delightful. Claudette Colbert is sparkling. But just as it gets into the love triangle the movie loses its steam and Colbert is once again reduced to chosing the right man for her. I almost hated the ending on the boat this time where she’s crying like a child for her husband. A turn I really didn’t like for her strong minded character that she was supposed to be.
Most of the first two thirds is an elaborate scavenger hunt. Got to point A, boom, find clue, go to point B, repeat. Some of the action scenes were very classy, I'll give it that. And the last part were classic Bond. And we get a glimpse on what a Ralph Fiennes 007 could have been. And yes, please retire Christoph Waltz from those roles. He was the weakest point.
