No animal cruelty which earned it a point. Something of a storyline, but rather sloppily put together, often lost and slow.

Allan C (nl) wrote: Another brilliant satirical comedy from director Ernst Lubitsch. The great Jack Benny and wife Carole Lombard are part of an acting troupe in Poland during that Nazi occupation that become involved in a a British plan to uncover a spy. While that sounds like a fairly serious plot, it's a very funny story that involves Benny and the troupe posing as Nazi's to out the spy. It's funny, suspenseful and utterly charming. The film was a failure upon it's initial release, being filmed before Pearl Harbor and released soon after. Carole Lombard also tragically died in a plane crash just before the films release, hurting it's box office appeal at the time. Since then, the film's reputation and acclaim has deservedly grown.

It's pretty intense and engaging in the beginning, and throughout the rest of the movie it fades from monotonous to intense until it ends on a downbeat note (rather rare for a Spielberg film). There's not a whole lot of development or depth to Clovis and LouJean but you can definitely understand and feel their frustration at times with just wanting to get their baby back. I really liked Vilmos Zsigmond's cinematography and I liked John Williams' music. Not the type of music he became famous for, but it fits and is actually quite catchy. It became monotonous because it did get a little boring just watching them going on a cross country trip because even though Clovis and LouJean and Officer Slide are believable, they're just not that interesting to watch (except for the scene when they're watching the Looney Tunes cartoon). Overall, the characters are believable; just not that interesting. Some of the stuff in between felt a bit like filler. Would I watch this movie even if Spielberg hadn't directed it? Obviously, it wouldn't be done the way he did it but the story is interesting enough to sit through. You could definitely tell we had a great director on the horizon.
