To Be or Not to Be (1942)

IMDb plot summary: During the Nazi occupation of Poland, an acting troupe becomes embroiled in a Polish soldier's efforts to track down a German spy.
Directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Starring Carole Lombard, Jack Benny, Robert Stack, and Stanley Ridges.

Although there's nothing really wrong with this movie, I had some trouble getting into it. I did laugh some, and I thought the premise was a lot of fun, but it just never gelled with me the way I hoped it would. I'm not exactly sure why. Don't get me wrong, though -- it's solid, and it's interesting, and I'd happily recommend it. I just don't know if I personally would watch it again.

2.5 stars.

Flickchart: #1088 out of 2150, below Last Holiday and above Coraline.
