Rating: B+ -- For some this funny, witty, well-acted sequel is better than the first picture in the series. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- In the view of many fans, After the Thin Man (1936) is the best episode in the series; and I can't say I disagree. Full Review
Surprisingly successful sequel to the delightful, Dashiell Hammett-based comedy-mystery, The Thin Man, with Powell and Loy as charmingly witty as ever.
The production gets extra points for its high Art Deco style and for settling back to let Powell and Loy carry the day. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Cute, though like its predecessor, more than a little dated.
After the Thin Man hasn't quite the spontaneity and charm of the original, but it's good mystery-comedy, the dialogue bright, the handling expert, and the principals as ingratiating as ever. Full Review
The mystery elements amount to much less than Powell and Loy's effervescent interplay as the movies' most happily married couple. Full Review
