The Philadelphia Story

You almost do not know who to root for in this amazing and hysterical classic. Katharine Hepburn is about to be married when her ex-husband (Cary Grant) and a pair of reporters (including Jimmy Stewart) come to crash the party. Seeing these three actors in the same picture is a unique experience. The moment when Stewart and Grant size each other up gives you tingles. Each character is humorous and lovable in his/her own way. Ruth Hussey is also very impressive in the film as Jimmy Stewart's partner. She completely keeps up with the wit of the other characters. You will absolutely fall in love with this film.
