Surprisingly successful sequel to the delightful, Dashiell Hammett-based comedy-mystery, The Thin Man, with Powell and Loy as charmingly witty as ever.

The two leading players seem to have a swell time throughout.
Christopher Null

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.

The production gets extra points for its high Art Deco style and for settling back to let Powell and Loy carry the day.

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.

The mystery elements amount to much less than Powell and Loy's effervescent interplay as the movies' most happily married couple.

For some this funny, witty, well-acted sequel is better than the first picture in the series.

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 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.
