    First half is moderately amusing, with Dan Stevens and Judi Dench putting in entertaining performances . Falls down in the final act diverges hugely from the play by inexplicably casting Mr Condomine as the villain who gets his fatal just desserts at the hands of the ghosts of his ex wives. The preceding acts establish the Condomine genuinely loves both his wives and has some understandable emotional confusion at the sudden manifestation of his deceased first wife Elvira, who we're told willingly collaborated with him to publish 15 books in his name, something quite understandable in a time when female authors were probably not taken as seriously. However in the final act this adaptation decides to paint Condomine as a heartless plagiarist and liar in complete contradiction to his character in the rest of the film, presumably so we should cheers when he meets his untimely end at the hands of his deranged first wife and recently deceased second wife who now also hates him for some reason. A daft ending and not one that captures the spirit of Cowards play at all.

    Bring, unfunny, and boring. Couldn't wait for it to be finished. At least it looked pretty.

    A total waste of a perfect ensemble, minus Mann for lack of script quality.

    Devilishly hard to find on streaming because of the many other same-title versions, this romp has much of the original 'spirit' of Noël Coward's classic comedy play. Dan Stevens, Leslie Mann and Isla Fisher turn in solid performances, only slightly marred by an overly-lush soundtrack that intrudes on the suspension of disbelief needed to enjoy them. Dan Stevens as usual turns out quite an animated performance; even better than his Alexander Lemtov character in 'Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga'.

    Just ok. A remake of a 1930s classic.

    I mostly enjoyed the movie up until the revised ending. It seemed a little Mean Girl Getting Back at the Bad Guy. As a "fresh new Feminist Take" it rather Flopped.

    This was a silly, zanny comedy and I enjoyed it for what it was. This movie had scenes that were almost sexy, yet still silly... in Body Mind and Spirit! It was very well written and while some of the plot was predictable, it was still a funny movie. ** NOT for Children. 8 of 10.

    One of the worst movies since Rotten Tomatoes was played. Slap stick, and not entertaining
