Trouble in Paradise

Director: Ernst Lubitsch
Year Released: 1932
Rating: 2.0

Gee, what a surprise: another classic I don't seem to like. I think it has something to do with the wooden staging and acting - Herbert Marshall is about as emotive as the Monolith in 2001 and his co-stars aren't that much of an improvement (neither proves to be very likeable: Marshall's cohort Miriam Hopkins and Kay Francis fail to generate any sort of sympathy as two icy, loveless people). Edward Everett Horton steals every scene he's in the same way he did in all the other movies he took part in. I was expecting The Thin Man or even The Shop Around the Corner and got the clunky The Merry Widow instead.
