We gave it a B+

They All Laughed, Peter Bogdanovich’s quiet romantic comedy about two Manhattan detectives (Gazzara, Ritter) following, and falling for, their subjects (Hepburn, Stratten), was unfairly overshadowed when Stratten, in 1980 (after filming had wrapped), was murdered by her estranged husband.

EXTRAS
Bogdanovich, who was romantically involved with Stratten at the time of her death, adds a wistful note to the commentary: ”Nobody ever saw this film as the…bittersweet picture that it was. Mostly sweet, not so bitter. But that went away when she was killed.”
