Ernst Lubitsch used Laszlo Aladar's play The Honest Finder as a springboard for one of his most delightful early-'30s Paramount confections. Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins play Gaston and Lily, a pair of Parisian thieves, both disguised as nobility, who decide to rob lovely perfume company executive Mariette Colet (Kay Francis); Gaston gets a job as Mariette's confidential secretary, while Lily installs herself as the woman's typist. Love rears its head, forcing Gaston to choose between marriage to Mariette and a fast getaway with Lily. Filled with marvelous throwaway gags and sophisticated innuendo, Trouble in Paradise was described by one critic as "as close to perfection as anything I have ever seen in the movies." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

If movies were champagne this would be Dom Perignon. Wit, sophistication,elegance. Forget that this movie is over 75 years old and that it is black and white and not wide screen. Just see it and then prepare to be disappointed in almost every modern romantic comedy you will see. This is just a terrific film.
This was an oldie. It was fun to watch. The acting was pretty good the plot was pretty believeable (at least for those times) and it was a delight to see all of the old fancy dress styles of the times. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Sophisticated, delightful. Elegant costumes + art deco sets = reason enough to love it, but there is more.
Do not skip DVD extras on this one. After watching everything our household eagerly sat through it ALL over again. (Full disclosure: we are movie nerds.)
Special note: Do not give up on Disk 2, if you get it. Seems at first like a repeat, but you will quickly be into interesting fresh material.
