4.0 out of 5 stars This is a Gem March 10 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This film is perfectly charming all the way through. There's lots of great talent in the star-studded cast and the whole effect is one of a charming fairy tale with wit and humor. The story is just a little bit far-out when private investigators break with their professional code and actually meet and fall in love with the people they are hired to watch. But putting that on one side, this is a lovely story that shows us a charming side of New York. This film rises to the delighful level that one rarely sees in films set in New York. Too many wallow in the 'mean streets' with guns and violence, but this one is a story about people who enjoy the city and move seamlessly through it, jumping from taxi to taxi arriving for meetings and liasons so smoothly. John Ritter shows us he is a master craftsman at being the buffoon and comes up with an assortment of fients, starts and gaffs to lighten the story. Ben Gazzara shows a charmingly romantic side of him, Audrey Hepburn is the masterful actress she always was. The street scenes are entirely authentic and lend credibility to the film. Nice acting, smooth cutting and humorous sub-plots are there too, and these make it all the more real. Dorothy Stratten glows with charm and beauty and is absolutely captivating. Peter Bogdanovich has posed and illuminated her well and she carries herself with confidence. What a charming legacy to leave behind is this film. How sad she was not given the opportunity to do more.
I put this film on whenever I want to be put in a good mood, and visit The City, and the film never fails to show me additional things each time I see it. What a gem

If you don't know who Dorothy Stratten is, she was the 1980 Playboy Playmate of the Year. Unfortunately, a short time before this movie's release, she was brutally tortured and murdered by her overbearing and obsessed husband in a jealous rage because she wanted a divorce. It is also important to note that the director of this film, Peter Bogdanovich, fell deeply in love with her during the shoot. She was only 20 years old and this was the first big budget film that she made. It was also first film in a string of films where she wasn't exploited. The movie "Star 80", made following her death, was about her and this tragedy. I highly recommend that film, it is currently available from Amazon.
This movie, on the other hand, is kind of campy; however, get it to see Dorothy Stratten. Her beauty is so remarkable that she is luminescent, almost as if she was lit from within. Audrey Hepburn costarred with her and I read that she thought Dorothy had the face of an angel. I think if you've seen "Star 80" and you want see the real Dorothy Stratten, this film is a must. It is a comedy but it is not the funniest film. There is some light hearted humor but it is mostly with John Ritter acting like a love sick goofball in his pursuit of Stratten's character. If a comedy is what you're looking for, then I don't recommend it that highly.
I read a recent interview with Bogdanovich and even though Dorothy has been deceased for almost 20 years, he said that this film was the closest to him and stood for what he really was about as a director.

The most surprising thing about Peter Bogdanovich's rarely-screened comedy "They All Laughed" is that it contains almost no discernible plot; three male detectives, (including John Ritter!! and Ben Gazzara) spend two hours simply trailing a series of beautiful women around New York City. The purpose of their pursuits is never revealed. For better or worse, Bogdanovich seems wrapped up in the idea of pursuing women, but this alone isn't enough to sustain a feature-length film. Oddly, the picture is laced with a country & western soundtrack. Character actress Colleen Camp (incredibly sexy here) sings a few c&w numbers at a Tex-Mex club...arguably, these musical snippets make the film worth seeing. Another reason to catch this picture is the presence of onetime Playboy playmate Dorothy Stratten (Bogdanovich's lover at the time of shooting) who was murdered by husband Paul Snider shortly after the film's release and became the subject of Bob Fosse's film "Star 80" (1983). "They All Laughed" was the only non-snuff, non-exploitation feature Stratten ever completed. In the early 1970's, Bogdanovich was hailed as the "new Orson Welles"; sadly, "They All Laughed" became his fourth or fifth flop in a consecutive string of failures including "Daisy Miller" and "At Long Last Love."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Big Little Film for NY'ers Nov. 22 1999
By grobma

The last credit in this film explains its appeal - - Thank you to the people of Manhattan on whose island this was filmed. A charming and witty romantic comedy, it is a love story written to New Yorkers (Peter Bogdanovich is a native) who can identify every location (West 12th Street, Greenwich Avenue - not Street, the Ansonia, the old FAO Schwartz, the Plaza, the Roxy, and City Limits which was a country & western club - not a Tex-Mex joint). One gets the impression that the entire ensemble cast clicked as well off-screen as they do on, and this intimacy is clearly communicated. I laughed, I cried, it was better than CATS. Not only an ode to Dorothy Stratten, it was also one of Audrey Hepburn's last appearances on-screen (if not THE last) and her inner beauty seeps from the screen. Buy it, make a big tub of popcorn, and curl up with someone you love.
