Essentially an uninspiring remake of My Favorite Wife with Irene Dunne and Cary Grant. Garner's ok, but if you've seen the original, there's no way you're able to forget Grant's charisma. Garner just doesn't compare, although he and Day are well suited together. If the pace had been a bit more energetic and more screwball-ish, I probably would have liked this more.
