    It Happened to Jane

    Doris Day said down with the 1%!

    Rousing fluff chock full of cute moments but it doesn't ever quite lift off, however there are worse ways to spend your time. In the words of my friend Andrew, "this may have been partially funded by the Committee for Trains Are Cool". The train was 10/10.

    It's a pity this rests so much on the charm (actually smarm) of the leading dude - who looks uncannily like Jeremy Renner - instead of it's sterling pair of leading ladies, Harlow and Young. Capra brings lots of sparkle, with a supporting cast amping it all the way up ("I putter"), and it looks gorgeous. Pity that there's a lot of wizened old sexism behind the central class-based conflict, because that aside a lot of this could be timeless…

    You know you're in your 30s when you watch this and lust over the apartment, not the sex.

    A movie that's mostly a young woman cooking food, eating food, cuddling a puppy and wearing a duffle coat is an automatic four stars and has probably lowered my blood pressure to almost-healthy levels.
