"Charade" is irresistible! Not to be missed! But ONLY view it in The Criterion Collection edition. Other VHS tapes and DVDs disappointed -- was I getting old and jaded? had the film lost its charm! The Criterion Collection restores what was cut over years to squeeze in commercials on late night TV. The Criterion Collection edition restores elegance, and at long last the story moves to an entrancing internal rhythm all its own. Read up on it elsewhere, but don't miss it.

As far as mysteries/thrillers go, this movie is not bad at all. The plot is unpredictable and will take you on a wild ride.

It is not so much a "Who-dunnit" as a "Who's-the-bad-guy?" With plenty of plot and character twists you'll find yourself going, "Well is he a good guy or a bad guy?"
Great show that illustrates in a fun way that people are not always what they appear to be.

Another plus for this movie is its star studded cast. Even if you aren't big on classic films, these actors are hard not to love. I especially like Audrey Hepburn's performance as a widow on the edge of a nervous breakdown while simultaniously falling for the very guy who MIGHT have murdered her husband.

The film is a comedy, but not so much that will make the tension seem ludicrous. It is well worth watching.

"Excellent movie! This is my favorite Audry Hepburn film. Criterion did an immaculate job with the transfer to blu-ray. The transfer alone is worth the steep price, though it would've been nice to see a bit more extras."
One of Cary Grants Best

"I have seen this movie too many times to count. This movie along is non-stop whats going to happen next. The twists and turns in this movie are amazing. Even the resent remake of this movie does not compare with the original in any way shape or form! It is one of my all time favorite movies. If you havent seen this movie, it is a must see! You will not regret it! Charade and House Boat are two of Cary Grants Best Movies that will make you laugh and wonder."
