That Uncertain Feeling (1941)



Reviews and Comments

This battle of the sexes comedy tends to get lost and forgotten amongst the surrounding titles in Ernst Lubitsch's filmography: Ninotchka, The Shop Around the Corner, and To Be Or Not To Be are all wonderful, whereas this one is a whisper by comparison. But taken on its own terms, That Uncertain Feeling has plenty to offer. It has all the earmarks of the famed Lubitsch touch, the remarkable way that heavy matters of the heart are dealt with in such a light and breezy manner. It's amusing throughout, though just one scene achieves hilarity -- and boy is it a beauty of writing, editing, and comic timing.
