Quite an entertaining romp of a dinner theater romantic thriller expanded so the action takes place throughout Paris. Whatever the plot devices, as transparent as any community theater production, this one chugs along about 98% on the magnetic charm of its leads, and the rest is...

I gotta be honest here and say that the first half hour of Charade sort of threw me for a loop. It seemed to have a difficult time at first establishing a tone. Whether that tone was mixed with comedy or drama, I wasn't entirely sure. However, once the film finally got going and ...

Quite simply, this is one of my absolute favorite movies and is perfect in every sense of the word. I think it combines all my favorite things and wraps them together in a nice package. Cary Grant probably has to be my favorite actor of all time, I idolize him completely and thin...
