MrE2MeThe best film Hitchcock never made. I defy anyone not to be entertained by this.
dyin2liveShe is a very trusting person.
dombrewerI may be the sole voice of dissent - all that kitsch, Mancini scored, 60s high-jinx left me a bit nauseous. I'm glad I didn't turn it off as I warmed up to it, but I didn't find it thrilling, or funny, or especially romantic (Hepburn is beautiful but she can't do sexy at all, and Grant is handsome but he's also mannered and smug and very long in the tooth here) so as a romantic comedy mystery thriller it didn't really work for me. I get why people love it, but I didn't.
fetzuThis felt like a poor man's Hitchcock.. but I mean that in a good way!
akuma587One of my personal favorites.
Siskoid1963's Charade is a lovely vehicle for Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, full of the wit and sophistication many of their films are known for. The dialog crackles. Not to say there's no thriller element, as the violence, while always brief, is surprisingly gruesome, and people lie so much, the paranoia level is actually pretty high for a comedy. As usual, Hepburn can do no wrong, and she even had me buying her sudden May-December romance with Grant on the basis of her flighty, almost Wildean character, the widow of a dead secret agent whose sins are catching up with her, oblivious though she is. I think Wilde is actually a good comparison. We have characters with mutable identities, spouting quotable lines and deeply unaffected by their own tragedies, except in the comic sense. Throw in big names like Matthau, Coburn and Mancini, and George Kennedy as a Bond-worthy Henchman, and real Paris locations, and you've got a delightful entertainment on your hands.
stefenemieSuch a great genre-bending classic.
bartleby187I wouldn't say this is Audrey's best film, but it was entertaining. and it has those four actors amongst my favourite in Walter Matthau, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn & James Coburn :)
DisneyStitchIt's an odd blend of comedy/spy thriller with a few notes of Noir thrown in. It's enjoyable, and the Hepburn/Grant romance works mostly because of the chemistry and script work.
GrooveRemote"Instant divorce" is gonna be my new term for spousal murder.
Also, James Coburn's southern accent could not be worse. Half the time I thought he was going for Australian.
george4monlots of twists and turns good film!
DynatiaCydoniaTo see it is to add it in your favorite list, a must see indeed.
i watch moviesOne of the best films of all time. Grant is hands down my favorite actor.
ohellofriendOh for Pete's sake... THIS IS NOT A HITCHCOCK!! It's Donen!
RobbimichThe most Hitchcocky film that I have seen that is not directed by Hitchcock. If this was indeed a Hitchcock film, it would be on at least 10 lists and way more recognized - which it deserves. I liked it a lot. Audrey Hepburn is, as usual, stunning and the chemistry between her and the ever handsome Cary Grant was electrifying.
