I really enjoyed the Thin Man, and so I decided that I was also going to see the sequel. Now in my honest to goodness point of view, this is totally and completely outstanding! In fact, this is even better than the first film! When you watch this movie, the chances are that you will be laughing and laughing yourself silly, in fact, you won't be able to stop laughing! I remember when I first saw this movie, I just couldn't stop laughing, I was laughing so hard that no sound was even coming out! Well anyway, this movie is totally and completely hysterical from beginning to end, from the very beginning of this movie to the very end of this movie, it is totally and completely hysterical! So all in all, this is another movie that requires viewing, because you are going to love this movie from the very minute that you press the play button on your remote control! So if you want to see a good comedy movie, this is the one that you should see! I totally and completely love this movie, it is so hysterical and laugh out-loud funny!
This movie all in all is one of the best movies of 1936, because I have seen quite a few movies from that year, and this just happens to be one of the ones that are the best of 1936! In my point of view, this movie is the best of the series, because after this, every film was not so good. So all in all, if you want to see a great movie, watch this one, because you will be laughing and laughing yourself silly! I mean that this movie is another movie that I don't know where I would be without, because it really is a great movie!
You've got to see this hysterical movie, because you are going to be in pain from laughter when you do start watching it! So all in all, this is another really great movie that I do not know where I would be without! In fact, this honestly is one of the best movies that I have seen in a couple of years!
