In post-war Germany, a WAC (Ann Sheridan) and a French Captain (Cary Grant) fight like cats and dogs, quickly marry, and then face endless red tape when he tries to immigrate to the US with his new bride.
Wow, did I hate this movie. It wasn't funny, it was horribly miscast, and it felt like it would never end. Grant inexplicably plays a Frenchman, even though he uses his trademark Cary Grant accent. Since he sounds American, the whole premise doesn't work. His dialogue is inane and I'm sure he was embarrassed to make this movie. Sheridan is as sexy and alluring as Ma Kettle and talks to Cary like his football coach; there's no love or chemistry and they make an off-putting couple. Katharine Hepburn would have been better for this part with perhaps Charles Boyer in Grant's role...someone, anyone, who could convince us he's French.
The endless paperwork required by the Army for an alien husband to enter the U.S. with a WAC sounds believable and this was based on a true story, but the whole thing is tedious, boring, and disappointing.
