3.5 out of 10 Comedy at its best
Damien from Dublin, 31 May 2011
Classic comedy film that has some laugh out loud moments but mostly just a feel good factor. The plot is fantastic and centres around two old ladies who believe they are making lonely men happy by poisoning them. The laughs get better and better as confirmed anti marriage writer Cary Grant, now a newly wed comes home as does his long lost brother. As the dead bodies stack up the cops get involved but not as you would think.

4.5 out of 10 Arsenic and old Lace
keith from Dublin, 28 Jul 2010
Cary Grant on top form, in this funny thriller romp where an mortimer brewster author of books on not gettiing married gets married, find's out his two spinster aunts are poisoning guests and a psychopath brother who is trying to kill him and another brother who thinks he is teddy rooseveldt. The acting is great it is good fun and wonderfully directed by Frank Capra

Couldn't bring myself to watch this, until the very end. Thought Cary Grant was over acting - it drove me nuts!

What's it about....
Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring’s 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who play lonely geezers with poisoned libations, one sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) –...
