No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
We're still appreciative, but we found too many chestnuts in the dressing.
The atmosphere and sets, along with stellar performances by the principals, can't offset a weak story.
One of string of above average Wiliam Powell-Myrna Loy crime-comedies...and a joy.
Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite couple continue to lightly spar and make those cross-cultural jabs, but the end result is decidedly tepid.
The solution seems more convoluted than necessary, and as usual the murderer breaks down and confesses in the end. Still, it's good to see Powell and Loy in action.
Lots of familiar faces are brought in to liven things up. But it's all rather diluted, as though the ice has melted in the dry martini.
Third entry in the series is nearly up to the second.
