News & Interviews for After the Thin Man
Critic Reviews for After the Thin Man
Surprisingly successful sequel to the delightful, Dashiell Hammett-based comedy-mystery, The Thin Man, with Powell and Loy as charmingly witty as ever.
If After the Thin Man is not quite the delight The Thin Man was, it is, at the very least, one of the most urbane comedies of the season.
The mystery elements amount to much less than Powell and Loy's effervescent interplay as the movies' most happily married couple.
The script is tight, the direction is swift and arresting, and the cast is tops -- MGM surrounded its two quipping stars with the best character actors on the lot.
Audience Reviews for After the Thin Man
A great sequel to The Thin Man, I recommend seeing the whole series they're all so good. This one has a very surprising performance from James Stewart.
The sequel to The Thin Man finds Nick and Norah Charles on their way home to California after solving the east coast case (as seen in the first film). Nick thinks he's in for a restful respite after his New York adventure, but upon arriving home, Norah's cousin calls for help, desperate to find her missing husband. He is out running around with other women, and soon gets himself stuck in a blackmailing scheme. Much of this movie will seem familiar to those who've seen the first one, it follows the previously established formula very faithfully. We the audience are given a list of suspects, all with a possible motive for murder, and are allowed the fun of trying to figure out "who dun it". Myrna Loy and William Powell reprise their roles as the lovingly sophisticated and witty couple, and Powell's Nick is still a raging alcoholic (and of course Asta, their cute little dog is back, cuter than ever). Perhaps it's not quite as good as the first one (the dialogue is a little less risque and funny this time around), but there's enough laughs and surprises to make it well worth a watch.
somebody has to be the bad guy...but who's it gonna be, hmmmm? i won't tell...
