  1. I love the film and always will, though I will also always resent that Grant’s character did lie about his trip (and perhaps had an affair?) and Dunne’s character never lied or cheated. Typical Hollywood gender double standards, but worth noting.

    • That’s a very good point. Every film, even the good ones, have unfortunate things that we must acknowledge about them. It’s important to note those double standards and problems to get a more realistic picture.
