Critic Reviews for Topaze

All Critics (2)

It might have grandly worked back in the day, but its comedy is inert and its presentation is stagy for modern tastes.

Audience Reviews for Topaze

If it weren't for the too-cute-for-words quality of Myrna Loy I really wouldn't have bothered. John Barrymore was great, but it started off kind of boring and even a little annoying. The dragginess of it eventually gave way to some minor fun and I in no way regretted seeing Topaze. It's no Thin Man, but it beats the hell out of Brett Ratner...
