29. Adam's Rib (1949)
Lawyers should never marry other lawyers. This is called in-breeding; from this comes idiot children... and other lawyers.
Quite a bit ahead of its time, this movie grants Katherine Hepburn the platform to lay the smack on anyone who ever doubted a woman. Spencer Tracy and Hepburn play married lawyers who happen to end up on opposite sides of a court case. What makes it even better is that the court case happens to be about a woman who is accused of attempting to murder her lying, cheating, no good husband.
Second late entry.... :( bonus entry in a few minutes to make up for it!
