Classic movie, although some mistake it for Hitchcock, it's not close. Highly recommended, BUT... the DVD I checked out was some dime-store reproduction from GoodTimes Video or something equally bad. In other words: horrible print, even worse digital transfer and full screen on top of it all. Too bad. Find it streaming instead.

Great crime thriller with bits of comedy and romance thrown in. Described by one critic as the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made. Audrey Hepburn won the Best Actress BAFTA Award for her role in this film and Cary Grant received his only BAFTA nomination for his performance. (The BAFTAs are the British version of the Oscar awards.) Definitely among the top five movies that either Hepburn or Grant ever made. Fantastic performances also by George Kennedy, Walter Matthau, and James Coburn.

Love Audrey Hepburn. I saw this film in first release in a movie theatre. It created an item for my bucket list - riding on a boat on the Seine in Paris at night. My wish was fulfilled in 1998 for my 50th birthday. Love the film. Love Paris!!!! Kristi & Abby Tabb

Such a lovely movie … Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn are charming and even though the movie was made in 1963, it still was completely watchable. Too bad movies these days are all about 'super' heroes, and not about 'real' people.

1960's thriller... Is it a drama?... a comedy??? a thriller. Fun to watch but I figured it out early on. A bit over-acting in parts but Grant & Hepburn make it fun.

Will we ever see two great actors in their prime playing opposite each other like Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant? Will we ever have such a wonderful script for said such actors to challenge them? Did I mention that Walter Mattheu has a character role in "Charade"? The soundtrack seems perfect for the story on the screen. Few movies today have the simplicity of the magic of "Charade". Long after today's movies are forgotten, movie goers will be wanting to download "Charade". Thank God for downloads, because Hollywood would have the movie out of print and destroy the original master tapes of the movie! After all, if you can't sell millions of copies, what would possibly be in it for them?

i had just watched The Big Sleep before this (William Faulkner was one of the writers) which had amazingly zippy dialogue spoken by Bogart who could really deliver a line. By contrast,Charade has some of the worst dialogue and line readings.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Parent’s Guide: A few murders do take place. (Violence is off-screen) The frightening scenes, however, are when the bodies are found. This will definitely frighten some younger viewers so I strongly recommend parental guidance for this title.
