Trouble in Paradise is a 1932 romantic comedy film that tells the story of a master thief who meets up with a beautiful pickpocket. The two of them go to work for a famous perfume manufacturer, and the thief finds himself torn between the two women. The film stars Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, Herbert Marshall, Charles Ruggles and Edward Everett Horton.

The film was directed by Ernst Lubitsch. The screenplay was written by Samson Raphaelson, based loosely on the play The Honest Finder (A Becsületes Megtaláló) by Hungarian playwright Aladár László. As with all the Lubitsch-Raphaelson collaborations, Lubitsch contributed ideas to the writing and Raphaelson contributed ideas to the directing.[citation needed] The screenplay includes the line "Marriage is a beautiful mistake which two people make together... but with you, François, I think it would just be a mistake."

Made before effective enforcement of the production code, the film is an example of pre-code cinema containing adult themes and sexual innuendo that was not permitted under the production code. In 1935, when the production code was being enforced, the film was not approved for reissue and was not seen again until 1968.

In 1991, Trouble in Paradise was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
