This movie is like a warm hug. A 98 minute warm hug that has really great characters and a ton of heart and wit.
The Shop Around the Corner is one of those good old rom coms. It's just a comfort movie.
What really shines out here I think is the characters. Every one of them just works so well with each other, especially in a comedic aspect. This movie is really funny, and that mostly all comes from the characters. And the strength of the characters come from the wonderful, charming performances all around the clock. James Stewart is a hero.
The only place this film really falters in the rushed ending, but that isn't too much of a glaring issue.
