A problem with a seemingly easy solution...and a couple easy to dislike.
3 January 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Maybe It's Love" is a strange little Depression-era film...one that was later remade as "Saturday's Children". It's strange because it seems to say that poverty will destroy marriages...but during the Depression nearly everyone was poor and they somehow managed to muddle through and live their lives.

Bobby and Rims (Rims???) have been dating for some time and seem to love each other. But when their boss brings his ne'er do well son into the company, he pays a lot of attention to Bobby (it's s SHE) and Rims gets jealous. In fact, again and again, they argue and they settled all this by getting married. Not the smartest reason to marry, I know. Well, after marrying Rims insists (insanely) that she stay home and not work...which might have made sense if they had any kids...though they didn't. Pressures besiege them and the marriage falls apart.

I felt very lukewarm about this film....mostly because the couple's problems didn't seem that difficult to overcome. Had the wife simply gone back to work (at least until they had kids) so many of their problems wouldn't have existed. And, it also is difficult to love the film when BOTH Bobby and Rim were easy to dislike. Overall, a mildly interesting film that could have easily been better....same with the later remake.
