After watching the entire film, I give Metropolitan a thumbs up. I did worry for a long time that I would never see the cast in suits or casual attire. I feared that they would remain in evening wear throughout the movie. I did enjoy the hypocrisy, the gossiping, and betrayal. The downward fall stuff was amusing as well. "We are all doomed for failure", I love it! In addition, I found the brunettes rather attractive in this film (always a plus)! I do believe this is a good film to watch around Christmas, but I plan to view it again soon. One always picks up on new detail the second time around.
