They are told individually that due to a technicality – an unresolved municipal and state jurisdictional issue at the time of their supposed marriage – their wedding was not legal, and as such they are not really married. Despite David saying earlier in the day that if he had to do his life all over again that he would not have married her (even though he loves her), it is Ann that decides not to marry David this second time around due to an action, or in reality inaction, by David in reaction to the news of their marriage being invalid. While Ann goes about her life as a supposedly single woman (which includes calling herself Ann Krausheimer), David does whatever he can to win Ann back. But winning Ann’s hand may be difficult as part of Ann’s new life is dating other men. One of those other men and the most serious is David’s best friend and business partner, Jefferson Custer. Ann and Jeff’s relationship quickly gets to the point where Jeff introduces her to his visiting parents, with whom Ann and Jeff are going on a skiing vacation to Lake Placid. David hopes to exploit that vacation in order to win Ann back.
Plot: Happily married for three years, Ann and David Smith live in New York. One morning Ann asks David if he had to do it over again, would he marry her? To her shock, he answers, “No”. Later that day, they separately discover that, due to a legal complication, they are not legally married.

Some golden moments but just doesn’t work as a film
Even the talents of Lombard, Montgomery and Raymond can’t really save this Hitchcock screwball comedy-curio. Some scenes are priceless – the scene in the Florida Bar where Robert Montgomery tries to make Carole Lombard jealous, and the scene where Carole Lombard gets Gene Raymond drunk are of the first rank – but more often than not the comedy falls flat. Whilst the plot of a comedy shouldn’t have to bear too much scrutiny it should have its basis in truth, and unfortunately, here the characters fail to convince; in fact they become rather irritating and dislike-able. With Hitchcock directing and such a stunning ensemble of actors on show this has all the feel of a missed opportunity – its sum never fulfilling the promise of its parts. Shame. Though maybe worth watching just to see Lombard et al, strut their stuff.
Enjoyable fluff from Hitch
Mr. Surif was wrong when he calls this Hitch’s only venture into comedy, for “The Trouble With Harry” falls into that category as well. Not having seen all of Hitch’s films, there could be others, for all I know.
Unlike “Harry”, in which the peripatetic corpse gives the otherwise bucolic goings-on a zanily ghoulish air, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” is an exercise in pure romantic comedy. Montgomery and Lombard work beautifully against each other, and the script is elegantly and effervescently witty. The opening scene, in which Hitchcock suggests the aftermath of a protracted and clearly energetic sexual romp, is surprisingly risque for its time, and far more erotically suggestive than some of the blatant stuff we see nowadays.
My only quibble is what I feel to be a rather unsatisfactory and hasty conclusion.
