This is Cary Grant at his ultimate best. Along with the beautiful and talented Deborah Kerr
That in itself should entice you to watch this wonderful movie.
We find Nickie Ferrante (Grant), an eligible bachelor that the rest of the world watches as he finally decides to settle down with a very rich woman. But on the boat trip back from Europe to New York, he meets Terry Mckay (Kerr)--who incidentally is ALSO engaged---and without knowing what's happened to them, they fall in love. They have some precious moments together that will make you cry, laugh, or smile contentedly. Grant never ceases to be his charming and smooth self. The story follows the hardships and trials they have to go through in order to be together. It is a story that will give you ever range of emotion, and leave you feeling good inside.
My (Audrey) favorite time to watch this movie is Valentine's Day. Ever since I was young, my family would watch it. It's just a wonderful movie that can please those of us who are still searching for our significant other. I introduced Erika to this movie last Valentine's Day, and let's just say she was converted. :) It's one that both husband AND wife can enjoy. Good humor, tender moments, just enough romance, and heart jerking moments.
I give my FULL petition to you to watch this movie. It isn't known as one of the best romance movies of all time for no reason. :)
P.S. I'm not going to give a full summary, because I can't find one that won't give away things that you shouldn't know before you watch it. So...just go watch the movie.
