Hilarious! Can't be beat.
The DVD is an improvement on the VHS version, which had the audio out of synch with the film the whole time. Even some TV broadcasts have this problem.
Not so with the DVD. Big improvement.

Sticky Bits of Paper
Kelly K. Coyle | Michigan | 11/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a wonderful movie. Who could ask for more, with a cast including Cary Grant and Robert Mitchum? Not to mention a duel, a missing mink coat, mushrooms, British manors and fishing? A wonderful romance, that shows how fate and middle age can come together and create havoc on the seemingly happy, if not a bit dull, life of a settled English couple, whose large country estate doubles as a tourist atrraction to support itself. (with lots of American tourists who leave apple cores and sticky bits of paper all over the grounds!)
To make ends meet, the wife also happens to run a thriving mushroom growing business in the cellar! (phew that was a long sentence!)
Robert Mitchum is one of these camera toting tourist who "mistakenly" wanders into the private portion of the house, finding Lady Rile and the sparks fly!
It's a charming old-fashioned adult romantic farce, that's not too far fetched."
Do you like Dundee cake?

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't even know what Dundee cake is, but I like this movie. Cary Grant as the befuddled, cool, supercilious, angry, calm, loving, clever, wronged, vengeful, forgiving Lord Rhyall does indeed excel. Deborah Kerr as the lady of the house who falls for Robert Mitchum, quite good. Mitchum's not bad at playing the cad. Jean Simmons as the bibulous, gossipy friend Hattie -- priceless.

But the dialogue, the verbal joustings, the rapid-fire wit: a marvel. As it turns out, there's jousting of a non-verbal variety, too. There's a weekend spent fishing. There are mysteries solved. There are lies covered and uncovered. There are knowing glances. There are panicky schemes and "friendly" phone calls. And most of the time, for the happy viewer, there is laughter. And admiration of this very elegant, very witty, funny and serious film."
Excellent movie, Good DVD copy, but NOT Closed-Captioned
D. Drane | Silverton, OR USA | 03/12/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The movie is delightful, the DVD copy is very satisfactory. Its letterbox format is perfect for this movie, much better than an ananorphic format would have been.My only complaint is that although the DVD is advertised as "Closed-Captioned" - it has the "CC" logo on the case - the DVD has NO captioning. This is quite disappointing for those who need captions.Still, this DVD is the best way to see "The Grass Is Greener" outside of a movie theater."
