I have discovered, I like screwball comedy! 🙂 I didn’t really know the exact definition of screwball comedy, so I googled it. I knew they were fast-paced, hilarious, rambunctious, always seemed to involve unwanted romance and said comedies had a happily, though hilarious, ever after ending.
According to google screwball comedy is ~
” a movie, a Hollywood comedy of the 1930’s, featuring the amusing antics of appealing characters in a glamorous world.”
Wiki tells us ~
“a female that dominates the relationship with the male central character, whose masculinity is challenged.” Mmm.
“fast paced repartee”
“plot lines involving courtship and marriage”
One of my favorite screwball comedies is ~ “Bringing Up Baby.” Oh yes, Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant star in this crazy comedy. They meet on a golf course, of all places! Cary Grant is engaged to another woman and Katherine Hepburn wants to marry Cary Grant. A merry chase is the result of said meeting!
Recently, I watched for the first time, “My Man Godfrey.” Oh! My! Word! If that isn’t a merry chase . . .
Wiki has a list of screwballs that I have not seen! Nice. I look forward to viewing them.
Have you seen any screwball comedies? If you have, which are your favorites?
