The two leading players seem to have a swell time throughout.
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.
After the Thin Man boasts two things that the original lacks; a much more engaging caper, and a first-rate performance by a shockingly young Jimmy Stewart.
A good enough sequel to The Thin Man.
Cute, though like its predecessor, more than a little dated.
In the view of many fans, After the Thin Man (1936) is the best episode in the series; and I can't say I disagree.
For some this funny, witty, well-acted sequel is better than the first picture in the series.
The production gets extra points for its high Art Deco style and for settling back to let Powell and Loy carry the day.
A strong sequel with a most unusual villain.
Made for three times more money after the success of the first go-round, this one brings back the hard-not-to-adore couple of Nick and Nora Charles, he an ex-private detective and she a current rich socialite. There's murder afoot and these two work to find out who's about it, charming us in the meantime. Jimmy Stewart plays a small role, too. About as good as the first one, and soaked in the juices of post-prohibition euphoria and jazz age wanton.
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.
"Nora, let's get something to eat, I'm thirsty."
A decent mystery and more knowing naughtiness with Mr. & Mrs Charles. Myrna's gowns are off the hook in this one.
