Trouble in Paradise Reviews
For romantic comedy no one excelled, and few matched, great director Ernst Lubitsch, who brought a sophisticated European touch to Hollywood movies. Trouble in Paradise is his most typical film and his best: a delightfully witty cinematic confection whose froth conceals a sly underlying cynicism. The story concerns upper-class jewel thieves running a scam against a rich Parisian widow; the cast are uniformly wonderful. See it, you'll like it! Unrated but no particular advisories, despite mildly adult situations: the sexiness is pervasive but artfully concealed. The Criterion DVD transfer is as usual excellent.
It has some great elements, 2 thieves in love & set in the backdrop of Europe & some twists & turns.
I think the problem lay largely in the script which just failed to grab audiences. I can see why it was so popular in its day but it's dated by today's standards.
