Between cocktails and the first course of a society dinner, urbane, dry-witted detectives and sophisticates Nick and Nora Charles will show the police the holes in their investigation, unmask a brutal murderer and solve the mystery behind the disappearance of The Thin Man. When New York City private Nick Charles (William Powell) married wealthy Nora (Myrna Loy), he thought he was going to trade his gum-soled shoes for a life of luxury and leisure, but he soon discovers that Nora finds sleuthing both exciting and seductive. Now, this couple--with and a marriage as electric as an illicit affair and a banter as crisp as a glass of champagne--live, love, and solve crimes with an unmatched sense of style.

Death and drinking in otherwise superb Hollywood classic.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this classic Hollywood screwball comedy/murder story from 1934 includes free-flowing hard liquor -- characters drink a great deal, with very few realistic consequences (only one hangover). Three dead bodies are involved in this murder story, and several guns are brandished and fired, though there's no gore or blood. The lead characters are married and occasionally pass some playful innuendo back and forth. Given that the movie is about grown-ups in grown-up relationships, some kids or teens may not be interested, but if they relent, they'll probably enjoy it. (Plus, there is a cute dog.)
