When a woman shoots her husband for his infidelity husband and wife lawyers Adam and Amanda Bond (Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn) end up defending their clients on opposite ends of the courtroom in this superb battle of the sexes comedy. Of the nine films that legendary screen couple Tracy and Hepburn made together between 1942 and 1967 Adam's Rib is arguably their best. Sparkling performances, cracking dialogue and the dynamic relationship between the two leads make Adam's Rib an "impeccably crafted and scripted classic".
