A New Leaf ★★★★½

Men will literally scheme to have a whirlwind courtship with a socially awkward woman with a massive fortune to maintain their lavish lifestyle instead of going to therapy, amirite folks?!?

A hilarious delight throughout, laughing at pretty much every line of Matthau’s exchange with his attorney about his being broke, every reaction shot of his butler. Rarely is the out of touch rich person hitting their first struggle written this sharply, and part is never treating him as anything other than a ridiculous space alien forced to actually do things for once. Gotta find some like this one, but maybe it’s the rarity that makes you crave 10 more you can’t find
